OUT TO LUNCH on the Northshore under $10!

Out to Lunch

I used to look so forward to my lunch hour! It was an escape from the desk and the duties. It was time to vent and chat and visit with my friends. I loved it and I never spent a ton of money, but it was still easily $10 a day…$50 per week… $200 per month!

I now work part time and do not take a lunch hour.  But, occasionally, I will go in for a half a day to make up hours or for a special task…and those days, I find myself wanting to go to lunch and have adult conversation and experience a great meal. However, I do NOT have the budget that I did pre-marriage and pre-kids! So, I have to be super careful about how often I indulge. My favorite salad near my office is $12 after tax and tip and I am drinking water.

This made me start thinking about how much some of you working mamas may be spending on going out to lunch. Of course, the best answer is to bring your lunch from home. But, sometimes, you may want to meet the hubby for a quick lunch….or you just HAVE to get out of the office for a bit….or maybe it’s a co-worker’s birthday and you want to treat them to lunch.  Any of these are perfectly acceptable reasons to break the budget a smidge and enjoy a mid-day meal.

SO…….here are some places that you can do that and not spend a small car payment to do so!

    Thanks for this very useful list. I wanted to let you know that Mugshots is no longer doing the $5 daily specials. We were sorry to hear this the other night. They are currently offering most of their burgers in a kid’s size for $2.50 less. I’m not sure if this is only for a limited time. Also, Colonna’s pizza is only open for lunch until 2 P.M. and closed on Tuesdays and Sundays. We found this out on Tuesday but ended up there today. Again thanks for the list – sometimes you just want someone else to do the cooking!

    An oldie but goodie is Outback steakhouse in Covington. Their lunch menu is $6.99.

    Thank you so much for this list! I am a SAHM trying to establish my small business. It’s nice to call the hubby every now and then and say, “Let’s go do lunch.” Especially since he comes home most days for sandwiches and to see me.
