Dinner on a budget in Temecula, CA?

Where would a couple of quasi-broke thirtysomething bohemians have dinner in Temecula, CA on a Sunday night?

My guy and I are going on a hot-air balloon ride in Temecula, and we need to eat. He's not a wine drinker, so we're skipping the winery experience this time out. Plus, money is tight right now.

Gastropub grub would be great, as long as there's no sports-bar vibe with loud/domineering TVs.

The burger place on the main drag downtown. I don't remember the name of it though and don't know if it is open on Sundays but it was decent for that kind of food and affordable.

cairnoflore is thinking of Mad Madelines.

Other suggestions:

Sweet Lumpy's has incredible barbeque at very reasonable prices - definitely the type of place you'd expect to see on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" or "Man vs. Food".

The Bank has good Mexican food and a really fun outdoor bar (without the sports-bar vibe or loud TV's)

If you're looking for something a little more upscale/romantic, Scarcellas is very good Italian food that isn't outrageously expensive.
