This is where the locals eat! Only place you can get a full breakfast with a drink for $3, Lunch for $2! The people are super friendly! Get there early, lunch gets busy!

Be prepared for three things: 1. Best prices ever! 2. GREAT hot dogs and my husband loves the burgers and fried chicken (only on Thursdays) 3. A crowd in an old old place and no AC. Just know it is worth it! If you can't...More

If you like cheap and good this is the place for you. Old diner feel with your good ole neighbor sitting right next to you. Great place to go hang out with a friend.

This place is good and some of the lowest prices anywhere! The decor is nothing fancy but it is a legend in town. You can't go wrong here.

An old fashioned greasy spoon with tasty food. Very unpretentious. Utilitarian Decor. Self-service. Styrofoam plates. Plastic utensils. Low prices. It's very popular with downtown government employees.

This is a throw back in time. Plain and simple. Nothing fancy at all, but unique. Good and cheap food!

City lunch , is one of these local hangouts, that has been around for 50 plus years. When you see the prices they are still at that low price back in the days as well., Family own business, food is great, and very causal attire.

City Lunch has the best hotdog you'll ever eat. You may want to buy them a dozen at a time since they are such a great price.
