Vancouver Cheap Eats: Greasy spoons

Jul 20 2016, 3:18 am

Although Vancouverites are known for our healthy, yoga-pant wearing lifestyle, sometimes we need to satisfy our cravings or reward ourselves with a treat (or three).

When you’re craving some guilty indulgences, here are five places serving up so good (but so bad for you) fare for $10 or less.

Since 1954, Argo has been satisfying taste buds in the GVA. In fact, they’ve even been on the Food Network show, You Gotta Eat Here! Don’t miss their Denver omelette for $9, or  their chicken burgers for only $6.95.

Known for being open 24 hours, Lucy’s serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner — or a midnight meal. You can’t go wrong with the all-day & night breakfast special for $8, or you can also get their mac n’ cheese & pulled pork homie for $10.

Address: 2708 Main Street, Vancouver

Phone: 604-568-1550

La Belle Patate

What’s better than fries slathered in gravy and bacon? Sometimes we just crave the fried and delicious, and La Belle Patate delivers, offering up a variety of poutines like a hamburger steak poutine for $9 or a medium BBQ poutine for $8.

Address: 1215 Davie Street, Vancouver

Phone: 604-569-1215

The Capital

Sometimes finding food that is satisfying downtown can be a challenge. From soft pretzels to fried chicken, whether you’re looking to start your evening or grab a bite before 1 am, The Capital serves everything on their menu for $4.95
