Coffee + alcohol + food hangouts

What are some of your favorite places that serve both good coffee and alcohol? If they have great snacks / food, that's a definitive plus! thanks.

Dallas Italian Suggestions

You could try Taverna, on Armstrong Street, just north of downtown, especially is you like risotto, although their woodstone pizza and other Italian fare is also good. http://www.tavernabylombardi.com/. It is more on the casual, neighborhood feel side so if you are looking higher end, I agree Arcodoro Pomodoro is not a bad choice.

Vegas black/red -- value husband vs. first time let's see

db,
thanks for the reply and recs. btw, what is QSR? I'll take your advice and look into some of the Asian places. what's your take on Lotus of Siam?

Vegas black/red -- value husband vs. first time let's see

thank kjs -- I'll look into the buffet option.
regarding the cab, I wouldn't mind getting off the strip and trying some of Vegas' other dining options at least once when I'm there even though I know the meal + round trip cab fare will get me well over my $20 limit. Don't really have any dislikes (ok, vegetarian is out) and love everything from pizza/burgers to vietamense/peruvian.

Vegas black/red -- value husband vs. first time let's see

OK, my wife has never been to Vegas and the sky's the limit -- she will be watched ;) -- versus me, the I've found most of the best meals of my life under $20/entree. We are staying at the MGM, so the strip/downtown are obvious, but a reasonable cab ride is open, too. Hounds, I could use some help. -- Thanks! g

In search of great buffalo chicken sand. in Dallas area

I moved to the north Dallas area recently and am looking for an outstanding buffalo chicken sandwich -- we are talking a plump, generous chicken breast, not a pounded, process piece of chicken and one that isn't just a piece of fried chicken with hot sauce on it. I know they are out there so I'm looking forward to hearing from you chows. Thanks.

Any other recommendations on good comfort foods/restaurants are always appreciated!

<$20/entree

am visiting San Francisco/Monterey/Carmel during the second week of June and am looking for great food at reasonable prices. haven't been to a city yet where there wasn't great food from under $20/entree and I doubt this trip will be the first (with your help, of course). we are open to any type of cuisine/setting so Bay denizens show us what you've got.
