Any decent & quick lunch spots near 5th ave & 30th

I'm wondering if anyone knows good lunch spots within a few blocks from 30th & 5th Ave. I've worked here for a while, and only have a few good spots. I'm still trying to unearth the good ones.

Any suggestions... it should be #1 affordable and #2 offer takeout.

My top picks so far:
Kalustyans - above the spice market at Lex & 29th it's all about the falafels and other great spicy foods.
Waldy's - on Broadway& 27th. Great pizza. Better woodfired pasta.
Shake Shack - as everyone already knows, unquestionably the best burger in town, and arriving before 12pm avoids agonizing waits.
Blue Smoke - the pulled pork sandwich 'to-go' never disatisfies, though no delivery offered.
Grand Sichuan - (lex & 34th) did someone say Gui Zhou Spicy Chicken?

Appreciate anyone's input... thanks.
