Best menu font

I'm working on revising a menu layout for a chain restaurant, (family-friendly, mostly ribs and steaks, mid-range pricing).

The typeface in use in Helvetica... lovely for may applications, but I fear not for this one.
I'm looking for any suggestions out there as to a typeface with high-legibililty at a relatively small size, preferably sans serif.

All suggestions are welcome!

Thanks to all who can help :)

Cowboy food makes me think of slab, not sans.

Maybe the rare and juicy Silica?

Although its x-height is a bit small for small point sizes.

Yes, Helvetica's numbers can be confusing.
What would you think of prices in old-style figures?
