Though there's no such thing as a free lunch, or so politics would have us believe, Boulder offers options that are pretty darn close. Concerned that low-cost means poor quality? Worry not, for we've scouted out the cheapest, most bang for your buck-est, awesome-est lunches in town. At the top of our list, you'll find Snarf's which boasts some of the most savory, delicious, toasted sandwiches you'll ever encounter. There gluten-free bread is also a big hit and you'll never know the difference. Sherpa's, which had been locally owned and operated for over a decade, serves the most succulent and savory Nepalese dishes for miles around, and has an ambiance that will make you fall in love, eat your fill, and raise a merry glass of your favorite libation.
For you traditionalists, good-ol Americana lunch options appear on our list in abundance. Snarfs offers killer sandwiches and the creatively named Mustard's Last Stand hits you with Chicago-style hot dogs and charbroiled chicken. For something a bit more refined, we heartily suggest Janpango-one of Boulder's most well-known and lauded sushi restaurants or the Dushanbe Teahouse, where you'll find options from all of the world, including Greece, Germany and Korea. In the mood for Mexican? Let us proudly present Illegal Pete's, the Pearl Street burrito powerhouse that will satisfy any hankering for food south of the border. So, sit back, put your napkin on your lap, and get ready to eat lunch like a king or queen in Boulder-town, USA.
