Cheap Eats, Midwest By November 9, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , 2 Comments

When I look at the line up for Cheap Eats Oklahoma City, larger cities with big food reputations like Chicago come to mind. With a population of just over 600k, you might not expect to find legit macarons in OKC, but low and behold, OKC has LEGIT Macarons. And I wish we had a deli as good as Scottie’s down here in Austin. Well, you know what happens now. I’m gonna stop beating around the bush take you back for one more bite of Cheap Eats Oklahoma City!

Cheap Eats Cleveland

Cheap Eats, Midwest By October 31, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , 2 Comments

Once upon a time Cheap Eats went to the Land.

Cheap Eats Cleveland was a matter of time really. The idea to do an episode here had been floated around during Season 1. And before that, Cleveland has been on my food radar since 2012. I’m sure more than a few of you out there may not know that before Cheap Eats, I worked in Food Television on the production side. My good pal Jeff Mauro, whom I teamed up with to create our own food show back in the day, hosted a show similar to Cheap Eats called $24 in 24 that went to Cleveland. I was in charge of finding the restaurants and so I already had a connection here. Like my hometown of St. Louis, Cleveland has history, cool old neighborhoods and some celebrated food cultures to pair with both. A lot of times we focus on whats trending in the food world, well Cheap Eats Cleveland is anchored in the iconic. Ok Ok, enough talk, lets take another bite out of Cheap Eats Cleveland!

Cheap Eats New Orleans

Cheap Eats, The South By October 22, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Cheap Eats New Orleans was an episode I could make over and over again, because there are just that many amazing restaurants churning out great meals at approachable prices. If love food, you know how important food is in Nola and how important Nola is to America’s food scene. I think New Orleans is the most important food city in America. No small feat considering the astounding multiculturalism of New York, the bounty of produce in California or the mind bending talent of Chicago chefs like Grant Achatz of Alinea. Why New Orleans over those cities? A tradition of eating well and on the cheap, that spurned its own cuisine: Cajun/Creole. And with that let’s take one more big bite out of Cheap Eats New Orleans!

Cheap Eats Memphis

Cheap Eats, The South By October 13, 2018 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Cheap Eats did some walkin’ in Memphis and came up strong with some non conventional Southern eats. Just how unconventional? Well, a little bbq for breakfast may not seem too out of the norm down in Tennessee, but on a paleo friendly waffle? Or how how about some duck for lunch? And don’t even get me started on a Thai curry classic with a Chinese twist. Well, actually you did get me started, so I guess I gotta keep going with one more bite of Cheap Eats Memphis!

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!
