I'm trying to find a place that has entrees that are about 15-20 dollars or less. Traditional American cuisine or burgers are preferred, although you could add Italian to the list too. Please, no bars due to the fact that most bars are probably going to be packed with people wanting to see the baseball playoffs. Thank you.

    For Italian, Cacio e Pepe is right around there on 11th and 2nd. The prices are in the 15-20 range for pastas and entrees and the food is more that decent - it's quite good.

      I think you might be able to stay within your budget at 9th Street Market, that has southern-inspired cuisine.

        The new cuban place on Saint Marks is called Cafe Fuego - it falls within your price range.

          You are a short walk from St Marks place between 2nd and 3rd where there are various cheap eats places including several Yakitori bars. There is a good Thai place called Klong and a branch of Grand Sichuan both on that stretch. There is also a good new cuban restaurant that just opened whose name I can't remember.

              Grand Sichuan St. Marks is excellent, but for good diner food plus good Polish food, I'd recommend Teresa's, 1st Av. between 6th and 7th.
