Last week, as I jetted to Denver, I solicited my social media fam for recommendations for cheap eats.
Along with some genuinely solid ideas and many not-so-solid fast food solicitations, I heard one comment over and over.
“I don’t think anything is cheap here,” was a variation I heard from several people.
Though I’d never been to Denver, that assumption surprised me. In just about every U.S. city, particularly the big ones, there are top-notch budget eats and drinks to be found — if you only know where and how to look. The problem is, a lot of people seem to find the logistics of just that confusing, leading to limp wallets, defeated drive-through runs and sad, store-bought sandwiches.
So since I don’t want you to be that person, since my life mission is making sure everyone achieves culinary exhilaration without draining their savings account, I wrote this mini guide with tips to find super tasty deals for super tasty prices.
