Sounds like Restaurant Row rents are going beyond what most people who know the local business scene feel are low enough to make a profit. The new places will either have to make a killing on the Snowbirds for those few months or find a niche group of locals willing to pay top peso to say they are dining on Basilio Badillo. In reality it looks to me like eventually they will all be replaced by condo towers. Enjoy the Romantic Zone while you still can. We can get better fajitas at a much lower price than the fancy, well-known place but I suspect their rent demands they charge what they do. We need a new "locals" area with good food and prices, and ambiance, not low price dive bars.

Not in one particular area, but some suggestions of places that have good, inexpensive food, though no ambience:

El Campanario, just to the south of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe -- usually busy, and we have had some very good typically Mexican meals here. Try the atole!

La Traviesa on Lázaro Cárdenas at Insurgentes -- reliable seafood and other things, again, typical Mexican staples (closed until 15 nov)

La Isla de Marín, on Matamoros just south of 31 de octubre -- good, small seafood spot. You want octopus, they've got it. Ceviche, ditto. Shrimp ... Only open until 1900, though when we were there a few nights ago, they were still bringing food out to a large family group at 1920

Lolita's on Avenida México around Rep de Chile. They have a nice plato fuerte and quite good chiles rellenos. Tables on the street are nice in the evening

A little more expensive, but also reliable is Cesare's, a little further north on Ave México. I think they're in the next block to the north of Ley's. Only open for breakfast and lunch

You want to go REALLY cheap, in Emiliano Zapata on Venustiano Carranza or Basilio Basilio, there's an open air tacos dorados place. Absolutely zero atmosphere, but they have good, albeit very basic tacos and aguas frescas. More expensive, and also zero atmosphere, there's Jerusalem Express for falafel and other wonderful Israeli items (homemade pita! homemade hummus!) on Venustiano Carranza next to Mundo de Azulejos.

Not sure how much this helps you, but these are some of the cheap places we like. Also, "ambience" usually requires an investment, so unlikely to be inexpensive.

Just so you know, Aguacate does not end there. Several more blocks of it continue above the steps, then above Pulpito, then above Hortencias.

Amen Bro! In fact Insurgentes ends up the hill in Alta Vista as well. And Camichin also continues up the hill. Too bad the PV maps are so inadequate!
