Where do you go on a weekday when you're too tired to cook (eat in/takeout)?

Hi, we're anticipating our annual trip up there this summer. While we normally enjoy a few spendy meals, this year we're on a budget. I spent a couple hours yesterday scrolling through the past year of posts and I've come up with a shortlist. We'll have a car and an apt with a kitchen, so we're looking for super casual, inexpensive, everyday places for eat in or take out. When we're there, we like to drive to new neighborhoods and just walk around all day, so suggestions anywhere in the city would be welcome (especially Petit Patrie, never been there and it sounds interesting). Here is a bit of my list so far: Portugalia, Ma'am Bolduc (love my poutine); Santropol, Terrasse Lafayette, Laurier BBQ, Frite Alors; Patati Patata; La Chilenita. While we love any kind of ethnic (except Chinese), since we have many ethnic options where we live we try to stick to French/Quebecois food when we're there. I think our one spendy meal will be APDC, can't visit without going there. Any inexpensive (say, $12 - $15 pp and under, without wine) suggestions for lunch or dinner? Cheap BYOs? We are two adults and one child, and I speak French (if that helps). Many thanks.
