Everyone has a favourite spot they like to hit up for good food that won’t break the bank. When the Georgia Straight asked chefs and owners around town where they like to go for cheap eats, we got a very long list of answers.
According to some, great diner-style meals that are wallet-friendly can be found at Deacon’s Corner. Another popular spot is Famous Nick’s.
Why so famous, you ask? It might be the epic proportion of their meat-filled shawarmas, perfect for those 2 a.m. cravings.
When it comes to cheap eats, one thing was certain—size does matter. That might explain why Budgie's Burritos found its way onto the list. As chef Andrea Potter of Radha Yoga & Eatery put it, “the burritos are the size of your face.”
Vegetarians and meat-lovers alike appreciate value. Main Street stalwart the Foundation was mentioned as a good place to get your fill of yummy vegetarian fare.
Other places for cheap eats range from noodle joints to taco shops. Check out a sampling from the list below, and you'll see that good value is not so hard to come by.
