We know options are key when it comes to deciding where to get your midday meal, so we’ve broken up these spots into their respective type of food: sandwiches, tacos, and pizza.
MacHenry’s Meat and Three | 581 Murfreesboro Pk.
Seasoned chicken tenders packed between two pieces of perfectly-toasted bread? Sign us up. This $10 combo meal also comes with homemade chips + a drink. Pro tip: If you need seconds or thirds try the catfish or meatloaf sandwich combos.
H & T’s | 2264 Murfreesboro Pk.
Take a trip back in time with the $5.99 grilled cheese, or stick to the classics by ordering a cheeseburger or patty melt — both ringing in right under $10. Bonus: All three options are served with a side of fries.
Otaku Ramen | Locations vary
Enjoy a hot chicken bun made with Otaku’s hot spice and Kewpie mayo slaw for just $6. Mid heat is also available + happy hour is daily from 4-6 p.m. (if you want a late lunch) with $2 off seasonal cocktails.
Taqueria La Juquilita | 803 Dickerson Pk.
Tacos, quesadillas, and enchiladas (all under $10) oh my! Stick to tried-and-true tacos with cilantro, onions and guacamole salad on the side for $2, or switch it up and get shrimp tacos for $3. Feeling extra hungry? Order a quesadilla for $8 or an enchilada for $10.
San Antonio Taco Company | 416 21st Ave. S.
Al la carte tacos ring in at $3 or less and additional taco toppings like beans, tomato, or guacamole can be added for 25 cents. Everything on the Tex-Mex menu is made from scratch daily and we recommend the pulled pork fajita with a side of chips + guacamole.

Find the plant-based or omnivorous tacos of your dreams for under $10. Did you know? You can make anything a combo with beans, rice, and a drink for an additional $3.75.
Five Points Pizza | Locations vary
This NY-style pizza joint has lunch specials that get you two large slices and a fountain drink for $10. If you find yourself catching up with friends midday (say, 2 p.m.), take advantage of the weekday happy hour special — any slice + any draft for $8.
Pizza Perfect | Locations vary
Snag an individual slice for $5 or less. Make it a late lunch and visit on a Monday for two -for-one slices + beer beginning at 4 p.m.
DeSano Pizzeria | Locations vary
Authentic Neapolitan pizza? Don’t mind if we dough. This pizzeria offers a 9” marinara for $10 until 3 p.m. We’re personally eyeing the 3 for $10 meatballs with marinara, pecorino romano, focaccia, and fresh shredded basil.
