Michael Corley likes him some mexican food. With three locations to choose from, Alfredo's not only has some good mexican food, but you can get it a cheap price. I like their carne asada burritos the best myself but whatever you get at Alfredo's, whether it be the enchiladas, taco, breakfast burritos and more, you'll get good mexican food at a low price.
Amber Ray commented that she likes Little Panda. My wife and I will have to agree because not only do they serve some good chinese food, but at a very affordable price. Not to mention they deliver. Most entrees you can get for less than $6 including Beef Pepper Steak (my favorite), Chicken with Broccoli, Sesame Seed Pork and more. If you go for the shrimp, it's about a $1 more. All in all though, for less than $8-$10 bucks, you can get some delicious chinese food for cheap. Good call, Amber! Little Panda is located at 1035 N. Judge Ely Blvd.

7. Stumpy's Cafe:
I have heard a lot about Stumpy's. Unfortunately, I have not had the pleasure of trying what some in Abilene say is "the best burger in town". Thomas Anderson picked Stumpy's as one of his favorite cheap restaurants in Abilene. Stumpy's, at 820 S. Treadaway, offers up burgers, brats and has daily specials with most meals under $10. I will definitely check out Stumpy's.
Erik Ramos says Abilene Seafood Tavern has some great lunch specials. After digging around, I will have to concur, though I have yet to eat there. Every day, Abilene Seafood Tavern has lunch specials from $699 to $8.99. So, for less than $10, you can get fish tacos, chicken fried pork, blackened grilled or fried catfish, popcorn shrimp, chicken fried steak or whole lot more. Check out Abilene Seafood Tavern at 1882 S. Clack.
