    There are some normal comedores but not in the more touristy parts.

    I hope I can get the directions right...

    there is a nice looking - very Dominican - restaurant on Calle des Hostas above (N) of the conde on the east side
    If you see Meson de Bari.... on the west side... you've missed it
    Backtrack half a block or so.... other side of the street

    Bird - you know this one ??

    Would that be Meson de Luis? Directly across the street from what was Hotel Mercure side entrance? A very small place but from what I remember many years ago served a decent plate of food.

    Once again, a good healthy walk up calle duarte will bring you to china town. No need to explain what type of cuisine you will find here. Delicia Campestre restaurant always gets good reviews.

    Grands (Pacos) on el conde across from parque independencia

    Dumbos located on independencia on a 45 degree angle off to the left standing at Grands (Pacos)

    Fairly decent Chinese restaurant off on a 45 degree angle to the right standing at Grands (Pacos)

    Pollo Victorina on el conde

    Villar Hnos you can walk to from the zona if you don't mind a good walk (google the location)

    Keep your eye open for a comedor serving plato del dia

    Pizza Hut and Papa Johns on Gomez a few blocks below avenida bolivar

    Manolos restaurant across the street from the rear entrance of Hotel Jaragua

    Just west of Manolos is a nice restaurant serving grill roasted chicken

    el nacional supermarket on el conde has small packages of prepared hot food

    yes, several I mentioned are not in la zona but as I mentioned if you don't mind a good walk and also get a chance to see other parts of the area you should be fine dining in the 400 pesos price range.
    Yeah, Just in case I need to mention that I am not a tourist and live in SD

    Btw, thanks for the sites I don't mind walk a litle just for eat something. Also pollo victorinas still alive? Has been years since the last time I eat in pollo victorina

    Not a Pollo Victorina its Pollo Rey there on el conde. Other than the name you may be right. its outlasted McDonald,Burger King, and Rico which was on the corner 1 block up from El Conde/Paco's or Grands as now known. Only thing I know thats been around as long is Petrus next to Plaza Lomba

    Another survivor is that fairly large restaurant just west of Romas. They put out the buffet type plato del dia everyday and have daily specials. Food ain't all that great but if your stomach is growling they will do in a pinch.
