I'm looking to have my bike frame painted or powder coated. Does anyone know of a shop that'll do it for a decent price?

I had my bike done by these guys in Livermore: http://www.maasbrothersinc.com/
Cost about $185, but that was because it was a two-layer job (lime green and black some how come out to dark green metal flake). I'm told that solid colors (no metal flake, nothing fancy) run ~$85 or so.
They will also pick up an deliver - tell them approximately what color you want and they'll bring paint samples (powder-coated beer cans).
I recommend their work. Here's some close up's of the finish: http://www.cyclofiend.com/cc/2010/cc792-christolbert0510.html (NOTE: The pinstriping was done by my LBS, not Maas Bros.)

I went to Leon's Powder Coating. It's either $90 or $120 depending on the color. They could have done better. A few blemishes.
