We’re always looking for ways to save you money, even if that means treating yourself by eating out. Cheap eats are something everyone is always on the hunt for and we think that eating out shouldn’t have to cost you a pretty penny. That’s why we’ve created our go-to guide on favourite places to eat in Toronto where you can get the best bang for your buck.
Everything on the menu is $5. I repeat, everything on the menu is $5. You don’t even see prices on the menu because it’s really not a trick; it’s all $5. And we’re talking large portions and great quality food. Unfortunately, that $5 rule doesn’t apply to drinks, but we’ll forgive them. If you’re looking for a place to go for cheap eats El Furniture Warehouse should definitely be on your list.
