Looking for some good places to go eat in NYC on a budget. When I planned the trip I wasn't planning on buying a house the day before we left but that is exactly what happened. So, at the moment, I need some good places to go that aren't going to cost me an arm and a leg. Yes, I now that even the affordable joints there are pricey, but any help is greatly appreciated! We will be staying around Midtown.
Looking for maybe some good Chinese and Pizza.

A nice little homey place to eat is Penelope's in Midtown (Murray Hill) -- 30th and Lexington. It's very reasonable too.
Outside of a few places, do yourself a favor and get as far out of Midtown as possible this time of year (going south)... I'd stick around East Village if you want cheap (Momofuku's Noddle bar isn't exactly "cheap" but it's certainly moderately priced and WELL worth worth every penny (1st Ave and 10th St). West Village is a good spot to hang out, but a little more pricey....
Trust me when I say, avoid all the overpriced tourist traps you're going to pass in Midtown - it's where every out of towner and foreigner stays...(ex: Bubba Gump shrimps, horrible "NY" pizza, Applebee's, Heartland Brewery...all touristy type places).

Edit: Thought of a good local pizza place around midtown -- Vezzo, it's a nice sit down place where you can grab a drink and well priced too but also not a generic "NY" fast food pizza place. 31st and Lexington.

Agree with MoeBucks. Get the h*** out of midtown. If you are within 3-4 blocks of the Rockefeller Christmas tree, get out of there. It is a total wasteland for anything non-tourist-y. You should plan on using the subway and get to some better areas. There is a phone app called hopstop that will map out public transportation for you.
When I get home, I'll write up a few places to try. Which hotel you staying at? East or west? Will try to make them convenient for you.
Moe - no mention of Pizza 33? Love Vezzo, but Pizza 33 is far superior. 33rd and 3rd. Great brick oven NY pizza. Cheap too. Open almost all night. Great for late night.
Try Pop Burger too. They are all over.

I'm up there this weekend
You should try shake shack for burgers. They have a few locations in the city.
I don't live in New York but Mcsorleys bar is worth a visit. 15 east 7th. Awsome old bar. No frills light and dark draft only. Pre world war 1.
McSorley's is great. Pre Civil War. Since 1854.
They have 2 locations in Miami, one is a block from my office, absolutely amazing burgers and their shakes !!!!
That's right! Awsome place. Like getting drunk in a museum. Except this time no whiny "historians" or "policemen" to ruin it. Thanks for nothin smithsonian!
Good Chinese: head to chinatown! Peking duck house is worth a visit...just wander around Chinatown and find somewhere.... Or if you're really adventurous try dim sum at jing fong....Eat in the large room....you'll sit next to a bunch of local Chinese peeps. Chicken feet....just watch others eat them.
Pizza- Lombardis in the east village or venture to Brooklyn for Lucali.
Thanks guys! We are staying at the New York Hilton.
True... McSorelys is truely a great place to drink - around the Holidays go earlier in the day though - try to avoid the Holiday crowds..
Also Korea town is a close walk from Midtown - 32nd between 5th and broadway. I you like good Korean food there are a lot of inexpensive / cool korean BBQ places there
Lots of good Chinese restaurants in NYC. There are so many Chinese restaurants in NYC you can't throw a dead cat without hitting one. In fact there are so many Chinese restaurants in NYC you can't find a dead cat.
Seriously, been there many times and tons of places to eat. MoeBucks is dead on as McSorelys as a great place to drink and party.
John's Pizzeria on Bleeker Street - good bars to go to before or after. Gotham Bar and Grill (more expensive) on East 12th.
native NYC Buckeye. These places are all great and cheap and near each other downtown. Agree with all stay away from Times Square
Café habana (prince and elizabeth) take out around the side for corn on the cob. Must do this
Parm -248 Mulberry between prince and spring –two minutes from Habana above, Chicken Parm here to die for.
Mile End 53 Bond St., nr. Bowery, also close. Try the breakfast burger, sick or the pastrami
Katz Deli – Houston St. A NYC legend been there 100 years. Houston St & Ludlow. Corned Beef on Rye. An NYC tradition. Don’t ask for cheese on it!
Zoe, 245 eldridge just off Houston. A reuben like you have never had. Insane.
(This Katz and Mile End are similar so maybe choose one)
Meatball Shop. Stanton & Ludlow –Like fifteen different kinds. Meatball Heaven
B & H – Chees blinztes. 2nd ave between St. Marks and 7th st. Yum. My daughter and I eat here once a week. Old school awesome.
Pommes Frites. Three doors down from B&H get a fries and try the 100 different sauces. $4 of fried goodness, hence the line.
Ippudo - 65 Fourth Ave/10st just north of Astor Place #6 stop. Killer Ramen/Soup
Xian. St Marks between 2nd ave & 1st Closer to 1st Ave next to Mexican place. Awesome pulled noodles and their mini kumin lamb burgers are great. Also cheap as dirt.
Porchetta - 7th between 1st and Ave A.Sarah Jenkins (famous chef) italian street food sandwiches. Excellent.
Caracas Arepas Bar - 7th between 1st and Ave A - Great Venezuelan mini corn meal pita pockets stuffed with different things. Venezuelan national dish
Bobwhite Supper Counter – Ave C and 7th. Kick ass east village fried chicken.
Momofuku Milk Bar 12st Just east of 2nd Ave. Try the Crack Pie. Awesome Desert.
Momofuku Noodle bar for Sticky Buns. David Changs killer buns.
Artichoke Basille – 14th St between 2nd Ave & 1st Ave –Artichoke Slice. Keith Richards has been seen on line here. Maybe it's what is keeping him alive.
Go to Mulberry St., little Italy. Pretty much everything is good there and costs 15-20 a plate. I like Sofia's Cuccina.
That place was awesome
We came back a second time.
Went to Da Marinos, alright food, crappy service
