The local guys here can steer you to great places in Queens and Brooklyn. I've found when I've been there that if you just get out of the touristy areas and explore the neighborhoods (for me that's been Gramercy, Hell's Kitchen, Chelsea, the Villages) you can find plenty of great cheap eats.

If you want cheap and very good and don't need to a sit down place go here and get the lamb or chicken and rice
Quote:
14. KWIK MEAL
45th St. nr. Sixth Ave.
Sixth Avenue in the mid-Forties is a hub of Manhattan street meat, with competing chicken-lamb-and-rice carts occupying each corner. But only one cart is operated by a chef’s-jacketed, floppy-toqued veteran of the Russian Tea Room. Mohammed Rahman runs his gleaming silver box like a mini-restaurant, expediting orders to his busy crew and chatting up customers. The Bangladeshi immigrant’s claim to fame is his marinated lamb, a succulent triumph of cumin, coriander, yogurt, and green papaya that’s actual lamb meat, not compressed gyro, rolled up with yogurty white sauce in a puffy pita or served over basmati rice. His falafel is idiosyncratic and more Greek than Middle Eastern, what with tsatsiki subbing for tahini and the kind of pita you’re likelier to find at Greek gyro stands than Israeli falafel joints. Regardless, it’s a tasty, rich sandwich, and, along with his distinctive jalapeņo hot sauce, part of the winning repertoire that’s enabled the sidewalk chef to branch out with two more midtown carts.

This place also has its fans and both are close to the tree. I know this one is open late. Dunno about Kwik meal
Quote:
17. HALAL CHICKEN AND GYRO
53rd St. nr. Sixth Ave.
These days, there may be more halal carts than hot-dog stands, but you will recognize this one by its never-ending line. You will also know it by its signature bright-yellow plastic bags and employees’ T-shirts, which proclaim, in no uncertain terms, we are DIFFERENT. TASTY. DELICIOUS. This opinion is echoed on a fan-based Website (53rdand6th.com), in a Young Muslims of North America chat room, and especially by the polyglot mixture of cabbies and bridge-and-tunnel pleasure seekers who crowd the corner every night, turning it into an impromptu alfresco cookout. The stand has even made it onto Wikipedia, under the name “Chicken and Rice,” and gained a more tragic form of notoriety last fall, when one customer stabbed another to death after a line-cutting scuffle. While no $6 lamb-and-chicken-combo platter is worth dying for, this one benefits from the constant turnover and the harmonic convergence of a hot red-chile sauce and a mysterious white one, the contents of which the Halal Chicken and Gyro crew cannot be sweet talked into revealing. An even bigger secret than the white-sauce recipe is the fact that HC and G operates a second cart across Sixth Avenue, on the southeast corner of 53rd Street, and even though it’s parked there until 2 a.m., it’s never cultivated the same devout following—proof, perhaps, of the herd mentality: The longer the line, the better it must be.

otherwise for sit down go to HB burger on 43 near Times Square or John's Pizza on 43rd near 8th.

There is a real place called Hell's kitchen?

What's next there is a city called Gotham and you can see Spiderman swinging down from the rooftops?

Not for too much longer if the real estate interests have their way. They want to rename it Clinton.

But Yes, Hell's Kitchen is a real neighborhood. See the musical gangs of West Side Story or the real gang The Westies for more info.
