Quick (cheap) lunch in Back Bay

I've had the requisite Viga, B.Good, ABC and Finagle.

What's a good, cheap lunch option in back bay.

Help a hungry brother out....

    1. I love the greek salads at Cafe Jaffa on Gloucester Street.

        1. The Other Side Cafe, on the Newbury Street extension. Great vegetarian chili.

          1. It doesn't exist, bro. How 'bout you and me open up a taco cart somewhere on Boylston St? Not that I'm heartily recommending any of these but here are a few options:

            Check the sandwich counter at Deluca's on Newbury.
            Maybe a gyro at Steve's.
            Hot dog from the ice cream truck.
            Burrito at the Wrap.
            There might still be a taco stand in the transportation bldg.

            There's always a walk to Chinatown, downtown crossing, or up to Mass Ave/NU for a shwarma.

              Herrera's in the transportation building was gross the one time I went there.

                The Wrap is now Boloco. The carnitas burrito is very good, IMO.

                  I'm in Adams_jo. Although I'm a bit concerned that you've recommended sandwiches from Deluca's...I don't like salmanilla.

                  Have you eaten at the Jamaican Beef cart in the BB Station?
