Wheel Truing in Chicago area (recommendations)

Quick question regarding wheel truing for a friend actually.
My friend needs his mtb rear wheel trued (laser disc i think) and his local shop wants $25 to true a wheel.
This seems awful high. First is this in line with pricing, and if not any recommendations. For a good shop.

Oh and this is a wheel true only not a retension.

$30-$35 is about normal for a wheel true - both wheels. Just 1 and I would expect to see $20-$25. FWIW - getting a wheel just trued with no regard for tension - recipe for dissatisfaction.
