Affordable food can be inspiring too. Café Tu Tu Tango is proof of that. Choose from tango alligator bites,  Cajun chicken rolls and more. The atmosphere is fresh and invigorating and the prices are appetizing too—entrees for under $10.

Comfort food option #1

For comfort food on the cheap you can’t beat a Bob Evans restaurant. They are dotted throughout the United States so grab your phone and find the location nearest to you.

Bob Evans is the place to go for classic comfort food at a reasonable price, dishes like turkey with stuffing and gravy.

They’re famous for their strawberry lemonade too and leave some room for dessert because at these prices you can definitely afford to indulge in something decadent and delicious after your entree.

Comfort food option #2

Want another comfort food option?

Head over to Perkins restaurant and bakery, another popular restaurant chain in the US.

Here the menu is also filled with classic comfort food options at great prices but do yourself a favour–the claim to fame at Perkins is the scrumptious pies, cookies and muffins their bakery bakes fresh each day. You can’t leave without trying something from the Perkins bakery, trust us.
