I am a huge fan of Cossetta's in St. Paul. The food is inexpensive, good and fast (you may want to avoid it if there is anything at all going on at the Excel, though, unless you like swimming through hordes of people). The mostaccioli is the best I've ever had. I am in love with their marinara sauce, which you can buy frozen. A lot of people rave about their pizza, but I've had better. I went there yesterday, food was its usually great quality, but the staff seemed apathetic. You could tell they would rather be someplace else. You could definitely find a worse place to drop about 10 bucks on a meal, though!
