These are the ones I have so far
Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe
El Pelon Taquieria
L Street Diner & Pizzeria
Mike's City Diner
Pizzeria Regina: Faneuil Hall Food Court
Silvertone Bar & Grill
Love the sweet potato fries at Beerworks!
There's plenty of discussion on Pizzeria Regina on this site, but I'd say the North End location before any of the others.
-Happy Hour at McCormick & Schmick's offers good comfort food, including a $2 burger
-La Papusa Guanaca
-Spike's Junkyard Dogs
-New England Soup Factory
Hyde - yes thks. added Victoria & Speeds - a wagon! - I even found it using google's street view

Not as cheap as it used to be, but I'd add Carlo's Cucina to the list. Well above average traditional red sauce Italian.
Different place called the Tam. The one in Brookline, near Washington Square, had pretty decent food, and has indeed been closed for years. There's a dive bar in downtown Boston, across from the Emerson Majestic, also called the Tam. (Although its sign is in a weird Gothic font, so that for many years I thought it was called the Cam.) Don't know if that one has food at all, or whether it's in any way chow-worthy.
Shame about The Tam (Brookline), which occupied the Publick House's current location for at least 10 years. It was a great live-music venue, and the food was indeed decent. That was a handy brunch spot when I lived nearby. Then they moved into a larger space in Coolidge Corner that was just hideous, like a dungeon, and the end came pretty swiftly.
