Good chow on west side of Madison WI?

Thank you one and all! I'd love to stay in the heart of town or near campus, but I'll be on the federal government's tab and the per diem is $143 per day for food AND lodging. Also, a rental car is not authorized, which means if I want wheels it comes out of my pocket. I'm staying at the Baymont because it's cheap and only 3 miles from Avid's offices. Also, the hotel has a free shuttle to Avid.
Again, thanks for all the chow info!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
It's a relief to know that I can at least get tapas (one of my many favorites) "plop in the middle of chainland," as you so eloquently phrased it.
Anybody else have suggestions? Even good take-out or delivery places?

Good chow on west side of Madison WI?

Hi all. Long-time Chow lurker, first-time poster. I'll be in Madison on March 9-15, 2008, for training at Avid Technology Inc. (6400 Enterprise Lane; east of West Towne Mall), and staying at the Baymont Inn (8102 Excelsior Drive; north-northwest of West Towne Mall). I'm hoping you fine midwestern CHounders can help me find some good food and drink (any price range or type, except sushi) on what appears to be the western edge of Madison. I'd like to avoid the usual national chain slop if at all possible. Past posts were very helpful for places in town, but I'm not always going to have the time or energy to drive into downtown or the campus for dinner or lunch. Many thanks in advance!
