The Best $20 Lunches In Barrie
Eating out is such a rewarding experience. The fun of picking out a menu item. Not having any dishes to clean. And the anticipation of your meal arriving, heightened by every passing plate, can be as vibrant a sensation as…well, maybe not THAT exciting.
Even for the casual trencherman, a lunch at a restaurant is a treat. And yet, dining away from home can quickly decimate your bank balance.
What’s a foodie on a budget to do? Luckily Barrie’s menu of eateries includes a choice selection of joints with great nosh at a prime price.
Scroll on to find feasts in town that won’t deplete your chequing account.
Coming in under the $20 mark is Skinny’s Big Breakfast (available until 3pm) and comes loaded with eggs, a trio of meats and fruit.
Classics like hoagies, chicken wings and Detroit style pizza can also be had for the magic number, with a plethora of sides to choose from.
And of course….burgers.
If the south end is more your jam, might we suggest a visit to Steyn House.
They offer a varied lunch menu replete with pub fare, burgers, smoked meat sannys, cheese steaks and salads.
All priced to get you out the door without breaking a twenty spot.
The Italian Eatery
The appeal of pasta and meatballs is universal. The next time you are craving something tomato-based when the noon hour strikes, the Italian Eatery has you covered.
Pick between veggie, chicken, veal or meatball sandwiches, or a panzerotti packed with cheese, sauce, and pepperonis. And that is to say nothing of their Paninis!
Tacos and burritos are always a solid pick for midday meals, and if you stop by Quesada on Bayfiled, you can treat yourself to both for the right price.
Packed with fresh meats and veg, a Mexican handheld makes for a bite that won’t damage your credit rating.
Sometimes the best lunch is a good breakfast. If traditional eggs and bacon-esque fare is what you need to power through the lunch hour, there are a couple of locales that will fit your budget.
Midway Diner has a hearty country breakfast plate for just 8.99, with double eggs and your choice of side.
Closer to downtown? Dunlop Street Diner also provides a two egg meal repast with optional accompaniments, for 8.99.
