While trying to track down the best homemade chips recently, the Out & About crew stopped by Players Retreat. In addition to their tasty chips (with homemade blue cheese), they also had great lunch deals!
They offer 11 items under $6 for lunch Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-2 p.m. I opted for a grilled cheese sandwich on wheat ($4.50), which came with a pickle and side item. I got the chips. My bill was less than $5 before the tip. (Note: I always get water because I'd rather eat my calories than drink them at lunch.)
Other items that come in under $6: plain hot dog ($2.50), Philly Dog with mustard, chili, bacon & Swiss ($3.75), a 4 oz. hamburger ($5.25) – cheese will set you back a dollar more – cup of soup ($3.75 for chili or soup of the day, $4 for their Brunswick stew), spinach salad ($4.95) and garden salad ($3.50).
So, cheap lunch alert indeed.
