Where is a good place to eat in Pittsburgh, PA?

My boyfriend and I are taking his parents to the airport in Pittrburgh, which is a little over an hour from where we live. I've been there several times, and have run into a good restaurant or two but was curious if anyone else knew of any restaurants that just couldn't be passed up. Not looking for anything super duper expensive but other than that I'm completely open to suggestions...can anyone help?
