With publications like Travel Channel and Food Network rolling out articles singing the praises of all the tastiness in Atlanta, it comes at no surprise you can find almost anything you want here. Today’s lineup? Affordably awesome eats 10 bucks and under. “Easy peasy.”

Varsity will forever and always be iconic in Atlanta. A classic Chili Dog is $2.58, onion ring or fries are $2.20, and a small Frosted Orange is priced at $2.58, all totaling in at $7.36 before tax. Add a chili cheeseburger for $3.40 if you’re extra hungry and willing to tip over the budget. (Its worth it!)

Home grown's Pimento Cheese Sandwich

For the best pimento cheese that has ever touched your taste buds, head to the modest green and white building known as Home grown.
