Best Budget Eats

Any good "must try" budget eats for my upcoming trip to the LA area? I'll be based out of Long Beach, but don't mind driving for food and/or finding things to do/see nearby your recommendations.

Seafood is at the top of my list - don't get much selection of that here in the Vegas desert!!

Asian is always good.

I'm open to ANY suggestions.

Cheers.

      Papa Cristos for some great Greek, lately I like the grilled octopus appetizer and the Gyros pizza.
