Not sure what kind of money you are trying to not spend, but Cheesecake Factory has lunch portions at cheaper prices. The bf and I ate there Easter Sunday for $30 including tip.

If we're gonna quote every restaurant that has a lunchtime menu, this is going to be a long thread - the OP is looking for "specials"

The only restaurants running specials pertain to night and obviously they would still be out of their price range.

what i'm getting at is a lot of finer establishments have dinner specials(ie 3 course meal for $30 etc) or have lowered their prices on items. Was wondering if any have done the same for lunch.

Villa Antonio in Ballantyne does a great buffet for lunch for $9 per person. Went there twice for the lunch buffet and it was great.

I read yesterday in USA Today that TGIF was doing a $5 menu for all salads and sandwiches.

Other places that have the 5 dollar menu were Shoney's, Subway, and Boston Market

I also think that it's a special that is running throughout May, so might have to wait til Friday.

The recession that brought back $2 gasoline is about to bring back to casual dining another retro price point: $5 meals.

On Monday, T.G.I. Friday's — which, like most casual-dining chains, has taken a hit during the recession — will unveil plans to sell all salads and sandwiches for $5 all day in May. The move follows a recent rollout by Chili's of 10 entrees for less than $7. A $5 price tag at sit-down restaurants hasn't been seen in quite awhile. "It's a magic number," says Malcolm Knapp, a researcher who tracks the $75 billion casual-dining industry, which saw same-store sales drop 4.9% in March. The $5 meal, he says, "is affordable to everyone."

The question: Can Friday's afford it? A steak sandwich that usually fetches $11.75 will go for $5, as will a pecan-crusted chicken salad, normally $9.69. All are full-size portions. The chain hasn't had such low prices on its menu since it opened in 1965.

Friday's executives insist that beyond being a recession response, the $5 menu is a way to drum up interest in nine new salads and sandwiches. "The consumer needs something that gives them permission to experiment — and this is it," says Andrew Jordan, marketing chief at Friday's USA.
