Non-chain restaurants Bonita Springs area

So, visited the in-laws over Thanksgiving, and their favorite place to eat is Olive Garden, and we couldn't talk them into anything else for Saturday lunch. But, I realized driving around, that I didn't see many non-chain local places on the main roads. As I will have to go back in June, do you 'Hounds have any recs for good, local food, mid priced? No Indian or Chinese please, as diet restrictions won't allow. Thanks in advance!
