Dine in Athens, GA For Under $30 A Day

Thursday, June 15, 2017 1:00 PM by Sean Kilgore

Athens, Georgia is a foodie's paradise: from small-town quaintness of local staples like Weaver D's, to the renowned cuisine found at high-end eateries like the luxurious Five & Ten. Whatever you're in the mood for, you'll find a meal that pleases your taste buds. With so many choices, it can sometimes be hard to choose. One of my favorite parts of the Athens cuisine culture, though, is the abundance of cheap eats. As a college student and aspiring foodie, finding a meal under $10 is one of my favorite pastimes. Over the years, I have scoured together a list of the best restaurants—whether it be for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner—with plenty of meals under $10! Here are my recommendations for dining in Athens, Georgia, for under $30 a day!

Paste Magazine is known for being on top of trends, so we know you'll be as interested (and thrilled) as we were to have them publish guides to Athens, Georgia, restaurants and the Athens music scene.
