    1. If you stuck to the lunch specials, you could probably eat for that much at Hallo Berlin. See:

        Ruby Foo's would be just purr-fect for lunch.
        West Bank Cafe for din-din.

          I have to disagree with the West Bank Cafe suggestion. I don't think a $25 budget will be sufficient for dinner there. But more importantly, it is not, in my view, a teenager-friendly place.

      2. try walking a little away from times square. you could check out five guys burgers or just grab a hotdog on the street or from any cart. this way you can add some $$ to a nicer dinner.

        1. Daisy May's, on the corner of 11th Av. & 46th St., has excellent bbq. A platter that includes choice of ribs + 2 sides = $15. It's a cafeteria-style set-up.
