When you talk about "cheap meals" in regards to the Strip, there are kind of two different definitions. If low cost is the main object and you don't care much about the food, the least-expensive option is always going to be one of the many fast food places that are almost as easy to find as slot machines. Just about every low- to mid-class casino has one or more fast food options inside. When I'm on the Strip and needing some quick fuel, I often find myself paying a visit to the Burger King or Mamma Mia's Pizza inside O'Sheas.
Canter's Deli inside Treasure Island is a step up from fast food, both in quality and price, and is a great option to keep in mind. Their sandwiches are fantastic and HUGE. So big you'll probably need to split one with a friend.
Note: If you are a fan of burgers and spot an In-N-Out, eat there. They have some of the best I've ever eaten.
The second option for "cheap meals" is one with better food quality and more more expensive than a stop at McDonald's -- but with a price still lower than a nice restaurant. For this, the best thing is usually a buffet at a mid- to upper-mid-level casino. Ballys is a good choice, as are Harrahs, Treasure Island, the Flamingo, Luxor, places of that level.
