Budget-minded dining near Fenway Park

Help! we are Chicago area Chowhounds headed for a weekend in Boston in July (We won a trip that includes staying at the Radisson Hotel and tickets to a Red Sox /White Sox game. We will be on a very tight budget but will be on our own for all meals. We are eager for suggestions about restaurants in the general area. We love fish/seafood and most ethnic cusine, but are game for any recommendations (that we be easy to get to!) for both dinners and breakfasts. Thanks for your input!

  1. Trattoria Toscana in the Fenway for your inexpensive but "splurge" meal for Italian.

    Cheap burritos and tacos at El Pelon also in the Fenway.

      Ditto - the el Pelon burritos will fill you up for $5. Brown Sugar Thai is also good (on Jersey st). On Peterborough St, I also like Rod Dee, the Greek place is ok, but can't wholeheartedly recommend Umi.

    2. La Verdad outside Fenway for burritos or a torta. You can bring it into a game with you too! A much more satisfying way to spend $6-8 than on just one or two hot dogs (though some will argue that hot dogs are essential to a baseball game).

      1. UBurger in Kenmore Square for great fast food (awesome chicken sandwiches and fries).

        1. Audubon Circle on Beacon is very good for the money. My only gripe is they never change the menu. It's about a 10 minute walk from Fenway Park.

          1. Also on Peterborough St. in the Fenway - I really like Rod Dee for cheap, yummy Thai food. My favorites here are Pad See Ew and Pad Kee Mao - both made with those ever so delicious big fat noodles.
