Quick dinner suggestions

Looking for restaurant suggestionsfor dinner tonight for my mom and I. Typically go to MTR and Loco Pez when she's down, but I want something different. End destination is Walnut Street Theatre at 7:30, so we're looking for something relatively close and quick.

I just can't think right now.

I'll give two suggestions at opposite ends of the spectrum: Nick's Roast Beef or Talula's Garden.

Han can get pretty packed some nights, would they get in?

Oooh-- Aqua looks like a definite possibility. (All suggestions look great, though...)

Pad Thai on 2nd and South was another go-to favorite of ours in years past...

Now this thread is making me think I should go out for a proper meal tonight instead of bar food. This also means though I'll have to shower.

Dude, two words. RUBY BUFFET.

I'm a recovering Ruby Buffet problem eater. Tonight I am thinking Jovan's Place, I need a healthy meal.

I've already moved on from Jovan's to Wawa and now to Sweet Lucy's BBQ. At this rate I'll never end up eating dinner tonight.

Sang Kee at 9th/Race. Not too far from WST.

We went to Aqua and quite enjoyed ourselves! Great suggestion! Thanks to all!

Once, when I was a youngster, we were supposed to go down the shore, but instead holed up a Holday Inn on Walnut Street, and spent the entire weekend in Nick's (there was one on Walnut Street back then).
Good times.
I should do that again.

i've only been there once, but really enjoyed my food. if there was a thai place around our neighborhood, i would have to hold back to not eat there every night.

we still haven't been to the one in chinatown. the one in royersford was among the best meals i've had in the last few years. i got the dry beef pot with those peppercorns that make your tongue numb. it was insanely delicious.

That's an awesome idea.
