Ballin’ on a budget has never been easier, thanks to these wicked lunch deals! Keep reading for a list of the top 5 Calgary restos that’ll feed you, love you, and charge you a fair price.


5s17 lunch calgary asian
5s17’s contemporary menu features made-to-order ramen noodle bowls, build-your-own poké bowls and tasty eats from the Asian grill… and best of all, the lunch menu from 11 am to 4 pm during the week is on for just $10. Bless.


pasta spaghetti garnish plate
This place’s slogan isn’t “hey bada boom bada bing”, so you already know it’s more quality than some other Italian spots out there. It’s also super delicious, and has unreal $10.99 Lunch Specials every day from 11 am to 4 pm… so hit ’em up and ride that carb high!

Alumni Sandwiches

Alumni is the place to be if you’ve got a sandwich craving. They have tons of stuff to choose from, and they’re all $13 or less, so head over to grab yourself some eats you won’t forget (Rosemary Beef Dip highly recommended).

Tubby Dog
