Suggestions for lunch only M-F restaurants

I'm about to have several mid-week afternoons available for tele-commuting, and would like to target lunch places that I can't normally get to. Mainly, I'm looking for places that are only open Monday-Friday and which close before dinnertime. Any additional ideas, or vetos on my suggestions? I'm mostly interested in brick and mortar places, but I'd be open to trucks that don't attend Off the Grid. Places in SF, Berkeley, and Oakland would all be fine.

==== Ones on my list of places to try ====
Galette 88
HRD Coffee Shop
John's Snack and Deli
Kitchenette
Muracci's Japanese Curry & Grill
Seoul Patch

==== Some I've been to and like =====
Pal's Take Away
The Sentinel
Golden West
naked lunch

==== Food trucks ====

          Lots of good places, but all these places are open on the weekends. I'm looking to blast through all the places that I otherwise would not be able to get to because they're only open M-F.

        2. Boulette's Larder - if you are feeling flush. Their daily lunch menu is normally on-line by around 11:30.

          1. Little Skillet, chicken n waffle place by AT&T park (though they are open for Sat lunch too)

            John's Snack Deli is ookay... you probably heard of their Korean Burritos, but the textures of the filling is all weird for me. And they don't steam their tortillas so they come out dry.

              John's Snack & Deli is OK if you're working nearby, but pretty much any Korean restaurant in Oakland or the Richmond is a better value.
