Let’s face it. Everyone likes to go out to eat. Not only is it often a “social happening,” but sometimes it’s a necessity when we haven’t planned accordingly for the next meal. But, going out to eat can be expensive – unless you have a handle on which restaurants offer value for what they serve and won't break your bank.
Fortunately, St Petersburg and Clearwater have many options where you can get a satisfying meal for under $10. Some are "Mon and Pop," hole-in-the-wall places, which serve ethnic cuisine - like the wonderful Zaytoon Grille where you can feast on authentic Mediterranean fare.
While you’re taking in one of the area’s best beaches, Paradise Grille and Kooky Coconuts are the perfect solution because not only are you just steps from the shore, you get a tasty, affordable meal to take with you, if you wish.
For something a little fancier, The Frog Pond and Stella’s combine tasty food with reasonable prices and South Pasadena’s Comfort Café offers a cozy neighborhood touch to the dining experience.
The ultimate adventure can be found at Mazzarro Italian Market where you can spend a long time poring over their freshly-made offerings, which can be savored on the premises or packaged up to enjoy at home.
Here's a list of places which offer the perfect blend of value and tasty food.
