At Burger Shack, you can get fries, a drink and a burger with as many as 18 toppings for $8.

Cheap eats. There’s a certain level of excitement that surrounds these two words when they’re used together. There’s the thrill of finding a terrific meal for an affordable price. There’s the excitement in learning that your very favorite steak house also serves grilled salmon, and it’s a fraction of the cost of prime rib. And really, there’s just something about knowing you’re getting the very best bang for every one of your hard-earned bucks. That’s why we scoured local restaurants and put together this list of our very favorite cheap eats.

Some of these items are truly cheap, hovering in the $5 or less section, and others range from $10–20. But whether it’s a $3 bowl of chili or a $20 plate of seafood-loaded pasta, all of these items are a terrific deal. They give you the most flavor for the least green, and more than anything, they prove that cheap food can also be great food. Dig in.
