31st and 6th - what to eat in the area?

I just moved to 31st street between 6th and 7th avenue. What are the must-eats in the neighborhood? So far, I've been getting takeout from Woo Ri Jip in K-town, but I am open to suggestions. Preferably around $5 per meal. Open to all types of food.
Neither one of these is right around the corner, but you might want to try Burritoville on 23rd St between 7th & 8th Aves or Murray's Bagels on 8th Ave just south of 23rd St. B'ville delivers, usually within 10 - 15 minutes. If you want to splurge, and you like steak, prime rib and/or mutton, try Keen's on 36th St east of 6th Ave. Welcome to the neighborhood!
Szechuan Gourmet -- 39th btw 5th and 6th
Olympic Pita -- 38th btw 5th and 6th
Pick-A-Pita -- 38th btw 7th and 8th
Lazarra's Pizza -- 38th btw 7th and 8th
Greek Corner -- 7th at 28th
BRGR -- 7th btw 26th and 27th
Chipotle -- 7th at 26th
Minar -- 31st btw 5th and B'way
Dimple -- 30th btw B'way and Park
you've already found the best "bargain" in woo ri jip. you can get some decent dumplings close by at the mandoo bar too.
Not open at nights, only for lunch. If you want cheap. I'd check out the garment district chinese food between 7th and 8th around the mid to late 30s. The food is close to the ones found in chinatown
I'll start you off with the only one I remember , fuji bakery . They serve buns similiar in price and taste to the ones found in chinatown. They also serve cheap and tasty hot meals similiar to the ones in chinatown.
the mcdonalds on 5th avenue and 33rd? . It actually has a full dollar menu. 1 dollar double cheeseburgers ,1 dollar mcchikens, sundaes etc... Most manhattan mcdonalds only has 2 items on the dollar menu.
Giuseppe’s Pizza on broadway on 35th. Decent but small slice. Nice combination sauce cheese on a crispy crust. If you like gloppy slices overloaded with cheese, this isn't the place.
sirtaj on 26th . bunch of spanish american places in the neighborhood too.
I second Sirtaj. They've been on 26th St before all of these big buildings were built on the 6th Ave corridor. They get bonus points for being survivors. Chipotle pretty good but I like Burritoville better. Also check out Manhattan Heroes on 27th St and 7th. Good Cuban and sandwiches.
Artisinal on 32nd and Park, Blue Smoke on 28th, Chef 28 (28th between Madison and Park) for Chinese, Pump on 31st for organic, Vezzo for pizza and really great sandwiches (Lex and 31st), Franciscos Centro Vasco on 23rd and 7th for spanish and lobster (YUM)
Ooh, really the only one that I can think of is....
Bon Chon Chicken at 32nd & 5th - for the most amazing korean fried chicken wings you've ever had. Just a warning: this is more than $5, but if you split it with someone and don't drink, it just might come close.
Also, the service is shoddy and the place gets packed on the weekend, but the wings (I prefer spicy to soy garlic) and the rosemary potato wedges are freaking divine.
