More Cheap Eats Athens

Cheap Eats, The South By September 28, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Not every city I visit on Cheap Eats warrants a second posting but as I flipped back over my iPhone camera roll and receipts I was stunned to find even more deals, hence this post: More Cheap Eats Athens. And I say stunned because when I was out dining on these here meals, budget was not in mind. I was craving whiskey and oysters when I popped into Seabear. The following morning I was in need of a stick to your ribs meat and three kinda place, which landed me at The Place. In under 24 hours I had two memorable meals that were also legit cheap, which means we need to take a bite out of more Cheap Eats Athens!

Cheap Eats San Antonio

Cheap Eats, Southwest By September 24, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

I gotta say doing Cheap Eats San Antonio was almost a selfish move. Being a resident of Austin, which is only a couple hours away by car(if the traffic Gods smile down favorably of course), I consider San Antonio to be my first choice for a weekend getaway not by plane. Being closer to the border means the Mexican food gets a little more authentic and all in all, San Antonio is cheaper than Austin. But that doesn’t mean your $35 will stretch through the day all by itself; you’re gonna wanna do some homework. Or you could just read on for one more taste of Cheap Eats San Antonio!

Bang for your Lobster Roll Buck: Bob’s Clam Hut

East Coast, Sandwiches By September 21, 2018 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: Bob’s Clam Hut 315 US route 1 Kittery ME 03904
the eats: Jumbo Lobster Roll
the bucks: $24.95
the full nelson: a sandwich splurge worth every bite

In the world of Lobster Rolls, Bob’s Clam Hut isn’t the cheapest deal around; that title is held by Sullivan’s which we featured in Cheap Eats Boston. But it sure does make a case for one heck of a sandwich splurge. No, the $25 sandwich won’t have you rolling on the floor from the pangs of overeating, but it is unadulterated seafood indulgence at its finest. And it all starts with showcasing the whole point of a $20+ sandwich . . . the lobster.

Cheap Eats Jacksonville

Cheap Eats, The South By September 17, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Cheap Eats Jacksonville was the second hit of the “one-two Florida culinary punch” that started with the left lead in St. Peterburg and followed up with the right cross in Jacksonville Florida. Straight up, I had no expectations about eating around these parts and man did I get a mouthful of solid Cheap Eats and as well as some killer Thai and some upscale dining as well. Regarding the latter – stay tuned for a future post on that, #bacon #hollandaise, but for now: strap in and get ready for another taste of Cheap Eats Jacksonville!

J.G. Melon ~ New York City

Burgers, New York City By September 14, 2018 Tags: , , 3 Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: J.G. Melon 89 MacDougal st. NY NY 10012  other locations in upper east side(original) and upper westside
the eats:Cheeseburger
the bucks: $12.50
the full nelson: one of NYC’s most celebrated burgers is worth a visit

The J.G. Melon burger has been on my radar for years now as it consistently makes the best of NYC burger annual round ups. Another classic example of the NYC pub style burger, much like Corner Bistro and PJ Clark’s, expect to find a thick patty cooked to requested temperature and a classic garnish of pickle and onion. In the age of chef driven concept burgers, the J.G. Melon burger relies on simplicity and quality but does it warrant a $12.50 price tag? Well, context is everything, but this burger is worth taking a closer look at.

Cheap Eats Charlotte

Cheap Eats, The South By September 10, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

Cheap Eats Charlotte was a landmark episode for me: this was the 50th episode of Cheap Eats. Hard to believe three years ago it all started with the pilot episode in Minneapolis but here we are. Fitting that this special episode featured some of my favorite things about food: burgers, food trucks, chocolate and food culture collisions. Charlotte is a growing town that likes to eat and with that, let’s take one more big bite of Cheap Eats Charlotte!!
