    1. Burger King Double Cheeseburger .99
      McDonald's Double Cheeseburger $1.39
      Sonic Footlong Extra Long Chili Cheese Coney - under $3.00 + happy hour drink

      1. Some of my favs in this category:

        * Banh Mi Cho Cu - Xiu Mai Banh Mi Sandwich (when it's just made fresh and hot, at $2.25 it's absurdly delicious! :)

        * Torihei - Delicious, fresh-made Yakitori Skewers (@ $1.80 - $2.50 per skewer). Of course I can't eat just 2 skewers (to keep it under $5 :)

        * Sam Woo - Pi Dahn So Rou Zho (Jook / Congeee) ($4.50 for a heaping bowl of soul-warming Congee). :)

        * Metros Balderas - Any of the 8 different styles of Carnitas Tacos (love the Costilla, Cuerito, Orejas the most) at $1.99 for delicious and HUGE fresh-made Tacos (2 of these are more than enough).

        * La Flor de Yucatan - Tamales (Colados style) - delicate, Chicken & Pork Tamales, Yucatecan style at $2 a piece.

            Their small chili is pretty good too if you add a packet of hot sauce to it.
