When I buy myself lunch on the go I never want to pay more than $5 (plus tax). If the whole family is out together make that $10. So i have compiled my list of $5 Lunches for Canadians on the Go. I have thrown a tip at each one as well.
On a hot day a cold sub is an awesome way to cover lunch. Positives here include fresh veggies, low calories and cheesy buns. Negatives? Long line-ups. Seriously, is there a Subway that doesn’t have 5 people waiting in line all the time?
The $5 medium pizza can be a quick crowd pleaser. One medium and 2 to 4 hungry mouths are satisfied. On the down side if you get there before the pizzas are ready it’s about a 6 minute wait for a new one and if you get there after they have been sitting awhile they can be a bit on the mushy side.
This one is my favourite. Your $5 gets you 2 tacos or burritos, fries or nachos, cinnamon twists or caramel apple pie and a refillable drink. Easily the best value because not only do you get a drink but you can split one of these between two people. Now its the $2.50 Canadian lunch. The minus here is for the post meal problems beans or spicy beef can provide.
There are many other options but these are the quick and cheap solutions I lean on when in a rush and a long way from home. Other fan favourites include soup and bagels at the Tim’s or the Wendy’s Pair Two.
What’s your $5 lunch?
