Are you forever on a beer budget with a penchant for wine? Yeah. Us too. That’s why we scoured the state to find the most amazing cuisine for less than 10 bucks – yeah, you heard us. Ten bucks. We’ve found options for breakfast, lunch and dinner scattered across the state. Get those forks ready, folks!
10. I Dream of Weenie - East Nashville
This fun East Nashville hot dog stop is easy on the wallet, if not on your digestive tract. Best of luck!
9. Bea's Restaurant - Chattanooga
Bea's makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. All the food you need, and so little from that wallet of yours. It's a dream for those that drank the Ramsey kool-aid.
8. Bagel Face Bakery - East Nashville
You're looking at a bountiful bagel breakfast VERY solidly under $10. You may be looking at five. And you won't be hungry 'til lunch, either!
7. City Cafe Diner - Chattanooga
Authentic diner food with no frills pricing makes City Cafe Diner stand out in our favorite river city. It garners rave reviews, too!
6. Trolley Stop Market - Memphis
Memphis does REAL good with the Trolley Stop Market. Multiple options get our taste buds all excited, and the price? Even better.
5. Dino's - Nashville
The diviest of the dive bars and the oldest in Tennessee offers cheeseburgers for the change between your cushions. Okay, not really - but burgers on a budget that aren't from McDonald's are absolutely killer.
4. Fuel Food Truck - Memphis
You see that mound of cheesy goodness up there? Yep. Fuel Food Truck moves itself around, but with the price of a lunch investment you may just want to follow it for dinner.
3. Bell Buckle Café - Bell Buckle
Served with a side of southern hospitality, Bell Buckle Cafe proffers a majority of their offerings for under $6. YES.
2. French Market Creperie - Knoxville
The only legit creperie in Knoxville is also perfectly affordable. A majority of their options (sans changes for picky eaters) come in under $10.
1. Mas Tacos - Nashville
At three bucks a taco, you're looking at a pretty solid meal over here. Sides range from $3 to $5, so Mexican is totally affordable!
We’re starving. Ready for lunch?
