I like Hanna's on Lime - small hole-in-the-wall place that gets pretty busy during the lunch break: www.hannasonlime.com

Also, in Chevy Chase there is a Mediterranean restaurant, Oasis, that does a lunchtime buffet that is really good: Oasis Restaurant - Eastern Mediterranean & Lebanese Cuisine

AP Suggins and AP Roots on Romany Road are good lunch spots. Hannah's on Lime is excellent as well. I've never been to Oasis for lunch, but love their dinner selections. Also on Romany Road is a place called Phat Pie that serves quiches, sandwiches, etc. Billy's BBQ is a nice lunch spot on the corner of Tates Creek and Cochran. Courtyard Deli on Cheapside in downtown is a great deli restaurant- be sure to get there early and beat the 12:30 rush. La Gourmet is a small slicery style place downtown and Bourbon and Toulouse is an excellent cajun style cafe. La Gourmet and B and T are located next to Starbucks on the corner of Main and Broadway inside that complex across from Victorian Square. Lexington unfortunately doesn't have very much in the way of bistros like you'll find in larger cities, but there are some really good local spots to grab a bite.

Zuni's on High St in Chevy Chase is a good French Bistro. Excellent sandwiches, breads and pastries.
On Clays Mill is an excellent New York style deli; Stanley J's.
Giacamo's is downtown. I have no yet eaten there but have heard good reviews from those that have.

Giacamo's is excellent as well. I forgot to mention that in my last post. Stanley J's is another place that you need to get to early before the mad lunch rush begins. Common Grounds is a neat little coffee house on High Street. Oh and we don't have Krystal in Lexington

Natasha's Cafe is downtown on Esplanade. Don't miss it! Ramsey's Diners are several places in town, and are wonderful, dependable for pleasant atmosphere and good food. My favorite is the original on East High Street. I don't know whether a la Lucie is currently serving lunch, but that is always a treat. There is a very decent Italian place downtown next to the Main Street/Broadway Starbucks. I forget its name but the food is great! The American-food bar on the other side of that Starbucks serves a wonderful burger. Cheapside Bar, at Short Street and Cheapside, is generally good. The Atomic Cafe, at Third and Limestone, is very decent food with a Cuban flair.
Bon appetit!

Furlong's is a good low country Louisiana style restaurant. Are they open for lunch?
