On Thursday, I stopped halfway between the Atlantis and Peppermill (on the Atlantis side of the street) at a place called Roscoe's BBQ. The menu is fairly simple. It's $7 for your choice of BBQ meat (beef, chicken, or pork), bread and sauce. Sides are extra. The pulled chicken was reasonable.

I took a look at "Jimbo's Tacos" but chose to skip it.

Across the street from the Atlantis and the Convention Center is a shopping center with a very complete "FOOD SOURCE" (that is what the sign says, for you unfortunate at-homes).
At the far end of that strip, at the end of the L, is a little Chinese place which has the best value you are going to find.

If you look out a window at the Atlantis which faces the Convention Center, turn your head to the right and you see everything I'm talking about.
Oh, and the supermarket has a little taqueria inside; turn left from the entrance and go all the way to the corner of the building.

I can personally recommend the fried tofu. A bit on the salty side, but very good. Mostly tofu, with some chopped onion and lettuce, and rice on the side.

Naan & Kabab -- highly recommended
Across the street from the Peppermill on S. Virginia Ave is Naan & Kabab, a small, unassuming-looking Middle Eastern restaurant. They serve lunch and dinner; it's not cheap but a very good value for what you get. (Hint: if you are in a group of 2, the Vegetarian appetizer plate will make you a bit full before you even get to your main course.)

We had that, we each had a kebab plate (they will subsitute a salad for either the rice or roasted veggies -- the cucumber salad I had instead of rice was excellent!), dessert, one glass of wine and a very odd yogurt drink called Doobh, and split the "Awesome Dude" dessert, which is crumbled baklava over saffron/pistachio ice cream. The total cost was $57 including tax and tip.

Service was a little slow but they restaurant was packed and they were clearly not expecting to be indundated by enthusiastic fen.

ETA disclaimer: the "we" referred to above was me and deguspice, who's my husband.

The Irish pub between the Peppermill and Atlantis on the Peppermill side of the road was good and not expensive. Nice beer too.
