Six Meals Under $6

Delicious food in Athens doesn't have to cost a fortune.

The unique food and avors packed into the many restaurants on Court Street can empty a wallet — fast. But fear not; delicious snacks don’t always have to empty your bank account. Here’s a list of extremely satisfying, cheap eats just off campus.

1. CASA NUEVA, CHIPS AND SALSA AND GUAC — $5.75

The gem of Court Street’s Mexican food has yet to disappoint. Craving some salty chips and a variety of salsa? en Casa Nueva is the place to go, as it offers chips, guacamole and one of nine different salsas.

2. BAGEL STREET DELI, CANTRELLA — $5.75

Of course, an Italian-style bagel sandwich! The Cantrella offers any choice of bagel stuffed with meatballs, provolone cheese, onion, banana peppers and pizza sauce. It’s the perfect lunch for when dining hall food just doesn’t sound appetizing.

3. O’BETTY’S, DIXIE “HUBBA-HUBBA” — $4.25

How about a good ol’ American hotdog? Not a problem! O’Betty’s signature Dixie “Hubba-Hubba” can take care of any cheesy craving during a night out — as long as it’s before 3 a.m.

4. SOUVLAKI’S, BEEF/LAMB GYRO — $4.95

No matter how you pronounce the word, a gyro from Souvlaki’s is never a bad idea. The authentic and savory pita filled with lettuce, tomato, onion, tzatziki sauce and a choice of beef or lamb — or both — will satisfy any appetite on a small budget.

5. BIG MAMMA’S, DREAM MAMA (BABY SIZE)— $4.25

The hidden gem of burritos. The Dream Mama mixes eggs, cheese, potatoes and bacon with chipotle mayo, lettuce and onion for a just- the-right-size savory breakfast burrito.

6. UNION STREET DINER, FRIED OREOS — $3.99, FRIED PICKLES — $5.49

Still craving that late-night snack fix? Maybe Union Street Diner, open 24 hours, can solve that problem. Whether you’re craving something sweet or salty, it will be fried.
