What are some French Quarter Eateries for a low budget

I am sending my wife a few of her friends to the French Quarter at the end of February. Her friends don't have a lot of money to spend on food. I'm looking for some suggestions for them for lunch and dinner. Breakfest they will get at the hotel. Does anyone also know of any late night snack places that a few women could get a light snack?

      I always visit Cafe Maspero when I'm in the Quarter. Very reasonable prices and overstuffed sandwiches. Cafe Maspero also has a huge seafood platter for under 10 bucks.

    2. there are lunch specials at both Mr. B's and Bacco that are priced in the $15 range for 2-3 courses..
      cheaper eats can be had at Mena's, Country Flame, Johnny's Po Boys, Central Grocery, La Pizza Kitchen, Acme and Felix. for late night, Coop's, Orleans Grapevine, and Felipe's on N. Peters.

      1. Napoleon House! Tell then to try a Pimm's Cup. Tastes like lemonade but it's an adult beverage with a slice of cucumber. Delish. They have all kinds of local food too.

        1. Don't forget Port of Call on Esplanade.

          1. My wife and I had an excellent and inexpensive lunch at a place on Rampart St called Nawlins Flava. We were there about a year & a half ago. I hope it's still there.
