We found that Mexico can be as cheap or as expensive as you like. If you want to go cheap (but still sooo tasty) street food is readily available everywhere! There were also a great range of restaurants in every town and city we went to in Mexico that were not that expensive and amazing value for what you get. There is also an option for going all out if you do fancy spending a bit more for a upmarket dining experience. So search around and you can definitely tailor your experience to suit all budgets!
