56 Things for $10 or Less to Eat Right Now

Cheap Eats 2017

Too often, inexpensive — or cheap — food is equated with poor quality and nutrition. Yet when we set out to create this year's budget dining guide, we were pleasantly surprised by all the options out there at local dining spots that are not only affordable, but also don't consist of fried, greasy and indulgent ingredients. Sure, you'll find a few treats here (milkshakes, uber-huge portions, pizza and a Dick's Hamburger), but the bulk of the following 50-plus items can be considered smart eating choices. So pat yourself on the back — not only are you saving money when you order many of the following options, you'll often be doing it with your own health in mind.
