|Teriyaki chicken burger|
This is an awesome burger chain that is famous for their buns made out of compressed disks of rice. They often grill your food up fresh and I also like their teriyaki chicken burger! Lotteria and Freshness Burger are other burger chain you could also try.
Yoshinoya / Sukiya / Matsuya
Great for beef bowl or gyudon. This is a bowl of rice covered in tender simmered beef, onions, and a tasty sauce. These restaurants have expanded their offerings so it isn't just beef bowl anymore. Beef bowl is a very cheap meal and a meal set is often a great way to go. Everyone also has a chain they like more than the others.

Great for tendon (tempura with rice). Also very affordable and they have some great tempura for the price you pay. They often have some seasonal specials and it always looks so tasty.
This is more of a full restaurant, but you can get a meal at a very reasonable price and it is more like traditional Japanese cooking. There is plenty of variety to choose from.
Great soba noodle chain, but again, more than just soba noodles. Plenty of variety on offer.
This is a popular curry shop chain. with a hard to miss sign. It wouldn't be a visit to Japan without having one of the nation's favourite dishes. It is Japanese style curry with rice. There are many curry outlets and they are all pretty tasty.
Here are a few photos from another curry shop, Homemade Curry Time, I tried in Shinagawa Station. It was good there! Again, you need to order from a vending machine, but there were pictures.
