Lunch on the Cheap

By Julie Norman

Some days leftovers just won't cut it, right? You scrounge around but there's just nothing there! Even if there is, maybe this is one of those mornings when you just don't have time to make a lunch before rushing off to work. So, sometimes eating lunch "out" is just inevitable, but that doesn't mean it has to be expensive. 

While this isn't the best pic, this quesadilla from Taqueria Guadalajara (7th and Pitkin) is a great, cheap lunch.  If you just get the cheese one it's only $3.75.  Today I got that and a small horchata (awesome cinnamon and rice drink) and spent maybe $7 with tax and a small tip. It IS possible, to find great cheap lunch options without resorting to the Taco Bell!
