    Speaking of the "not that cheap" category, I'd suggest Indochine Vietnamese Restaurant. If you want good eating, order the "Triple Satay," and make sure you go on an "off" night, when there's not that many people there. (When they're too full, the service and food isn't as stellar as it can be.) I recently moved to Ashland, Oregon, but boy, if I could import this restaurant over here, I would!

    I am a cheap-eats connoisseur and these are not the 25 cheapest places to eat in Salt Lake City. I have eaten in 11 of these 25 places and enjoyed them (Adobos and Enjoy top that list). But they are not all cheap, you will spend $9-15 per person to get a meal. Here is my top cheap-eats list:

    1. Taco stands at 800 South and State Street (2 tacos for $1.50 or a huge burrito for $3.00).
    2. Any Betos (Albertos, Guadalbertos, Betos, etc). A huge burrito for $4.50
    3. Sweet Ginger in Midvale. Any entree for $4.99 after 9 pm. and it will feed 2 people.
    4. Most hamburger chains have a dollar menu.
    5. KFC offers a daily lunch special for less than $5.
    6. La Autentica in WVC - you can get pretty full for under $7.
    7. Cafe Zupas - sandwich and soup for under $8.
    8. Cafe Guanaco in WVC. Great pupusas, dinner plate for $5.99.
    9. Any sushi place with 50% off rolls.
    10. Any Groupon, City Weekly, KSL deal - I mean, why pay more than you have to?

    You forgot the Wendy's Dollar menu. I like the chili.

    But honestly, Most of these suggested outlets are not that cheap.
