Inexpensive Restaurant for Dinner in the French Quarter

So far, I have the following places on my list:
Breakfast- Cafe Du Monde, Elizabeths, Original Coffee Pot
Lunch- Commanders Palace, Bayona, Johnny's
Dinner- Eat, Casamentos, Stella

I just need a place to eat that is relatively inexpensive for Thursday night in the French Quarter. We are on a tight budget and already going to spending a good bit at Stella I'm sure. Ideas? Thanks for all of your help!

    1. Other options: bennachin, salt n pepper, el gato negro, sukho thai (marigny), Acme.

        1. Louisiana Pizza Kitchen, Mona Lisa, Port of Call, Fiorella's, Gumbo Shop. All are relatively cheap and the food is good. Not Stella good, but good nonetheless! Also, the take out food at the Quarter Master Deli (a.k.a. the Nelly Deli) is surprisingly good and really cheap. My parents stayed at a place close by and my dad ended up eating there a couple of times a day.

          1. I second the Mona Lisa and for take out the Quarter Master.
            The last time we were in New Orleans we had a pretty inexpensive late night dinner at 13 on Frenchmen and the food was reallty good. Also, if you like Middle Eastern, try Attika on Decatur. Try Mona's also on Frenchmen.
