Quick and inexpensive lunch near Hotel Sofitel Bloomington?

Hello chowhounds, several coworkers and I will be at a three day training at Hotel Sofitel next week.

We are looking for quick and inexpensive (around $10) lunch ideas (we'll have a one hour lunch break two days, 1.25 hours one day). Anyone out there have recs? We will have a car.

  1. About 5 minutes away (by car) is Wally's Roast Beef. It's not fancy, but it's delicious and cheap and there is really friendly service.

    1. Baker's Ribs has a $6.99 House Special that is a good value. Google maps says it's six minutes away.


      1. Might be fun to try the Deli at https://www.facebook.com/HylandSki. Have not been there for years but it used to be good.

        1. Grand Szechuan (10602 France Ave South) about 5 minutes south of 494 @ France. Lunch specials in $7-$8 range. Dan Dan Noodles are excellent. So is the fish with dried peppers... Get a plate of Szechuan Cucumbers to share.

          1. Great info so far, keep it coming!
