dirt cheap eats in NOLA, post-K
Let's start a new list. I'm talking $10 and under kinda joints, emphasis on good-to-great food. To kick things off--a link to Gambit's recent coverage of taco trucks & new Mexican restaurants popping up around town: http://www.bestofneworleans.com/dispa...
If you remember the article in Lagniappe a few weeks back....

A really friendly person trying to make all the while spitting in the face of adversity needs our support...

Felipe's (new Mexican place by Elio's, behind the strip mall at Calhoun and Claiborne).
Cheap Lunch Places:
Liuzza's by the Track
Cheap Dinner Places:
Doson's Noodle House

I remember the cashier (who was inside a cage for some reason) handled transactions for the diner and for the flophouse hotel upstairs.
