Warren is good, or Satarpios in East Boston for pizza and sausages/peppers or lamb tips

Both of those options are in Charlestown and Eastie! He's looking for a place in Southie. I don't know anything about Southie but hopefully some locals will chime in.

Another option is Chinatown. Don't get hung up by the location. We went to Chinatown today and took a $5 Uber to the boat show. It's less than a mile away. Lol. But we didn't have pizza,burgers etc. It's Chinese food or Pho soup! Haha. Expensive? Not at all. We spent $28 for 2 including the tip at Hei La Moon.

Come on bro, "taking my girlfriend" and "any place that is not too expensive" should not be in the same post!! If she happens to read your THT posts, she won't be your girlfriend for long. Take her to Legal Harborside or Mortons and maybe you'll have another date.

Trillium opened a tap room and restaurant over by Seaport Blvd. Great beer and great food. Surprisingly affordable despite the cost of their beer. Also a big crowd the last few times I was there on a weekend. They do take reservations though.
Warden Hall over on Broadway is also good.
Barlows on A st. is just ok. Of course there is always Moton’s, Del Frisco’s and Legal test Kitchen right on the water.

I stayed near the convention center for a conference. I ate at legal, harpoon, some lobster place near harpoon, and the meat pie place. All delicious. I was drunk and fat for 5 days basically.

Don’t get me wrong, love me some chinese grub but something about hoisting a pint where Paul Revere or George caught a buzz has a certain historical significance for me that trumps any cravings I might have for bbq spare rib or a steamed dumpling.

PS: The $1 a shuck Oysters are a lot cleaner burn then fried rice and the price is tough to beat, even if my boys will eat a 100 of them if the shucker can keep up....

Local 149 in southie
Babbo Pizzaria in seaport. Great spot but a bit fancy
Pomodoro in the north end, make a reservation. Cafe pardiso for a desert. Don't be afraid to park on any side street you wont get towed and a ticket is the same cost as valet if you actually get one
Sail loft in the north end is great, cant go wrong with a chowder
Warren in charlestown is good as suggested but I prefer monument down the street if its just the girl. Wait for a spot at the bar to open up it usually takes a drink or two.
The navy yard bistro is pretty good in charlestown and pier 6 if you want to get a drink with a harbor view after but food there is $$$ and not great.
If you want to disappoint your girl and save a buck take her to the shake shack or 99. I would take advantage of Bostons food options while you are here its worth it.

This. And you should include a pic if you are going to take her out for a cheap dinner.

Suggestions actually in Southie:
Lincoln
Loco
Backyard Betty's (haven't been)
Shennanigans
Local 149
Coppersmith

Solid scenery, but FYI most places will be busy with the day drinking crowd

I live right near there in southie, all the above are great suggestions. I would add Dry Dock Cafe, incredible seafood in an odd location -its the lobby of a building (and odd times) but cant beat the freshness. Not a tourist crowd either ie Yankee lobster. This was one of Menino's favorite restaurants. Portabello near L and broadway, Italian, cash only, great, the homemade fusilli pasta is an up charge but worth it. Local 149 is a favorite as well. There are newer places Loco, Lincoln, Broadway (can be loud, younger crowds) and in the seaport -go Legal test kitchen over harborside if price is an issue. And finer dinning options as well. Harpoon is worth a stop in, not a huge fan of their beers really but great location. (pretzels only)

Seaport has changed so much in recent years!
Look into:
-Ming Tsai's Blue Dragon
-B Lynch's Drink (for drinks), Sportello for pasta and Menton for all the marbles!
-Is Hooks still there?
-I agree with the Chinatown depending on weather. That walk can be cold! But food is plentiful, drinks are cheap.

For proximity to BCEC, you want to be looking in the Seaport, not Southie.

Walk to Row 34, Pastoral, Babbo, Pete's Dockside.

But, Boston is TINY and you can take an Uber/Lyft pretty much anywhere for under $15 if you're already at the BCEC.

Best food overall is across the Charles, but my favorite dish in Boston is the Szechuan Bolognese at BLR by Shojo in Chinatown: https://www.blrbyshojo.com/menus
