Good Quick Cheap place around 16th a& Guerrero in the Mission for Dinner

My friends and I are doing pub quiz tuesday at Elixir on the corner of 16 and Guerrero. Any suggestions as to where to eat nearby that would be realitvely quick and inexpensive. I know Pancho Villa and the 2nd Pakwan are close, but does anyone have any other suggestions?

    1. Arinell's for a slice of thin crust pizza. 16th & Valencia.

      1. You could check out the board fave Yucatasia!

        It's on Mission between 17th and 18th, I believe. Very inexpensive, very delicious.

          Just note that Yucatasia closes at 8:00 (but sometimes they are there longer). Just in case...

          Yamo is great and cheap ($5.25 for all entrees) but they cook a la minute which can slow things down a bit. Windy's recs for Yamo are great and I would throw in the curry fish.

        2. Alhamra for Indian/Pakistani or Ti Couz for crepes.

            I tried Alhamra for the first time last week and we were pretty disappointed. The only thing I liked was the chicken kahari special. The okra and the cauliflower-potato dish were mediocre at best and not very flavorful. The chili naan (which I don't see on the take-out menu) was ok. Granted, it was very cheap so I am more than willing to try other dishes. Did I order wrong? What should I have gotten?

              I thought the chicken achar was quite good and the rice was beautiful. Here's a thread with some more ideas.
