25 pesos for 2 slices of pizza at a pizzeria called new york pizza on Calle A off Las Belles Artes Boulevard. Cheaper than the New York pizzeria at the Playa (beach).

On Mondays, the Oxxo chain of convenience stores has a special on hot dogs (Vikingos): 2 for 20 pesos.

WalMart (not in the restaurant category) sells slices of pizza for 14 pesos, ham and cheese croissant for 15 pesos, small hot chicken cordon bleu for 15 pesos.

There is that flying machine thing called plane :) and I think passport would be recommended unless you don't want to come back to us.
