Longshot---any place to get a good Italian beef in Portland/Southern Maine area

I was watching an episode of Man Vs Food for the zillionth time and got a serious craving for some Italian Beef. Since I don't see myself being able to afford a trip to Chitown any time in the near future to get the real , is there anywhere nearby where I can get a reasonable approximation?

Staten Island Ferry is free. I went on it during my first and so far only visit to The City four or five years ago. Mostly hit up the touristy sights there so I'm sure all of your suggestions will be completely new to me.

Forgot to mention German food in the original post. Don't have any in Portland. Any good reasonably priced beer halls with some good wurst in the area?

Hi folks!

I'm going to be staying in New York City from the 22nd through the 26th of May and I was wondering if I could get the experts opinions on some good, unique food in the city for a budget that won't budge. I'm talking $5-10 a meal. $15 maybe $20 max. I'm staying in a hostel on West 88th and the closer the better but I'm willing to travel to the outer boroughs so long as its within a reasonable walking distance from a subway stop.

Specifically, I'd like to find some really good authentic Chinese, Mexican, and soul food places. A good deli with sandwiches that don't cost $16 is also something I'm interested in Suggestions for other types of food that I can't typically find at my home in the woods of Maine would work too but bear in my mind that my traveling companion is a picky eater with somewhat unadventurous tastes. Basically a meat and potatoes type of fella. Given that we're college students, suggestions for bars in the area are also welcomed.
