14 Atlanta Spots Where You Can Lunch For $14 Or Less

It’s not that you’re broke, it’s just that you’re pre-rich, right? Until that essential oil business you just started really pops off, we’ve got your back with these 14 restaurants where you can save your cash and still eat out for lunch! 

Corner Cafe Sandwiches - Smoked Salmon, Smoked Turkey, Tuna Salad, California Wrap, and More

Corner Cafe Sandwiches – Smoked Salmon, Smoked Turkey, Tuna Salad, California Wrap, and More

1. Corner Cafe And Buckhead Bread Co. – This Atlanta favorite has been serving up freshly baked bread and delicious breakfast and lunch to the Buckhead crowd for years. They’re great to visit for brunch on the weekend or dine in for a tasty weekday lunch. You can now also order them for catering and truly be the hit of the office, or take a boxed lunch to go filled with your choice of sandwich, chips or fruit and cookie or brownie for just 8 bucks! We especially love their “Corner Cafe Ham & Swiss” sandwich with spicy dijon mustard and their “California Wrap” with fresh vegetables, avocado, provolone, and basil mayo all wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

2. PITA Mediterranean Street Food – Get a pita this! PITA Street Food keeps it tasty and fresh with all of their Mediterranean offerings. The beef kafta pita will fill you up but won’t set you back! Multiple locations all around Greater Metro Atlanta. 

3. Zesto – An Atlanta staple for 70+ years, Zesto is truly a classic stop that you can always rely on for a filling and inexpensive meal. We can’t resist the chilli cheese fries! 

Grindhouse Killer Burgers

Grindhouse Killer Burgers – Burger & Sweet Potato Fries

4. Grindhouse Killer Burgers – Crinkle fries are the best way to fry, don’t @ us. Especially when dipped in a Grindhouse milkshake! Grindhouse definitely has the burger for you, and your vegan and vegetarian friends can now also get the Impossible burger!

5. Wade’s Fine Eatery – This Smyrna spot has the meal for you! Order a hearty soup or tasty salad from their lunch menu; you’ll especially enjoy their Littel Miss Sunshine salad made with spinach and arugula tossed in a champagne vinaigrette and topped with red onion, avocado, grapefruit, and other yummy bites! Their Small Carbon Footprint 2.0 sandwich, made with harissa, a chickpea burger, arugula, and red onion is also the perfect choice for a Meatless Monday meal. This cozy spot is also excellent for cocktails, and has a truly impressive outdoor patio that’s pup-approved!

6. Pijiu Belly – Work in Midtown? Grab a bento box for just 10 bucks from Asian street food favorite Pijiu Belly in West Midtown, Monday through Friday! You can choose from their grilled chicken, fried tofu & brussel sprouts, grilled beef, or grilled salmon options.  It must push you over $13, but you really have to try their Takoyaki balls. They’re absolutely phenomenal! 

7. Ann’s Snack Bar – Head to Kirkwood around lunchtime to get the famous Ghetto Burger, a delicious and saucy mess that’s sure to leave you in a total food coma.   It’s been named the best burger in America by the Wall Street Journal, and is a favorite among Atlantans everywhere. 

Lee's Bakery Bahn Mi

8. Lee’s Bakery – They’ve got bahns hun! Bahn Mi, that is. Lee’s Bakery in Duluth has sold one million of these delicious Vietnamese sandwiches, and if you’re also craving pho, you can get a half sandwich plus soup combo that’s sure to satisfy both you and your bank account. 

9. Taqueria Del Sol – Queso the munchies?? Head to Taqueria Del Sol to eat more for less. The line is always long, but don’t be discouraged as it moves quick! Get the shrimp corn chowder and the special of the day! 

10. Mad Italian – You’ll be mad if you go to Chamblee and don’t stop by Mad Italian. Boasting an excellent cheesesteak, a mouth-watering chicken parmesan sub, and reasonably priced pasta galore, Mad Italian is a place where you can totally get your money’s worth. 

11. Fellini’s – How could we not include daytime, late-night, and anytime favorite Fellini’s on our list of cheap eats? Order it up by the slice, or split the white pizza with some friends. Yummm.  

Goldberg's Grain Bowl

Goldberg’s Protein Bowl

12. Goldberg’s – While known for their bagels and pastrami sandwiches, Goldberg’s truly has a little something for everyone, and at the best price, too! You can get breakfast at any time, and they’re even serving up this delicious protein bowl special with quinoa and salmon that’ll power you up perfectly for the day! 

13. Breadwinner – Breadwinner is always bustling for lunch, but after trying their soup, sandwich, and side combo, we can truly see why! The tomato soup is perfectly creamy and delicious, and you do not want to miss out on their pumpkin bread. 

14. JINYA Ramen Bar – Ramen is their specialty, but their pork chashu bowl is also terrifically tasty, filling, and plenty for lunch. It’s a great choice if you’re craving something delicious in Sandy Springs or Buckhead!
