Best of the Lunch Bunch
Though many people don't put much thought into lunch, it's an underrated time to dine out. Restaurants usually aren't too crowded, it's a nice way to unwind if you've been at work, and best of all, it's usually less expensive than going out for dinner. There are lots of restaurants that cater to lunch-goers, from delis to pizza-by-the-slice joints, so you can find everything from hearty, comforting diner plates to healthy brown rice bowls. Here are some of the best spots to find a great, cheap lunch in every state, based on value and reviews from hungry customers and food critics. Bear in mind that inflation has flexed its muscle in the past three years, so don't be surprised by prices northward of $10 for some meals.
