Cheap but delicious food near Columbus Circle?

Usually I'm the one answering these kinds of questions but now I'll be the one asking. Backstory: fiance's brother started school at NYIT which is by Columbus Circle (61st and Broadway). He's on a very very very limited student budget (and I really mean that). Is there anywhere around there that has decent food options and won't go above, lets say $6 for a sandwich or $10 for a meal that can equate to 2 meals (thinking kinda like Sophie's Cuban or something where the portions are huge)? Any good carts nearby?

Yes I know he can go to Chinatown, and yes I know I can feed him sandwiches myself and have him take them to school with him, but I'm looking for actual places he can drop by to grab a bite in between classes. Thanks!
