Eating out in Vancouver can cost a fortune, so knowing where the cheap spots are is important for your bank account. Lucky for ya'll, I hate to cook, so I am a master of dining on a budget.
I have eaten at all of these spots - and I'm telling you, the food is always worth the price. If you're broke AF but you got a wicked Tumblr, these 11 spots are sure to cure your hunger pains.

The Dime // 1565 Commercial Dr
One of Vancouver's famous $4.95 food joints. Everything on the menu is $4.95. This one is on the Drive, so if you're up for breakfast before 2pm, I recommend chomping down on the Breakfast Sando.

Hi Five Grilled Cheese // 30 East Cordova
This place is a whole in the wall - literally, it's a little window in the side of the Van Horne Building. But it's the best damn grilled cheese of life. It would be a sin to not try all of them but the Cheddie Vedder is the personal fave. This spot is also the bomb because it's open late on weekends, for all your drunken hunger pains.

The Moose // 724 Nelson St
On Thursdays The Moose has $1 sliders. Mini-burgers. That is all.

The Capitol // 1178 Davie St, Vancouver
Another $4.95 food spot. My personal favorite is the Crispy Chicken Wafflewich. A sandwich to most people, but to me an opportunity for chicken and waffles. Ask for a side of maple syrup and some Tabasco... The poor man's chicken and waffles.

Jack's Place in Army and Navy // 36 W Cordova St
I shit you not, for $1.50, you can get a grilled cheese sandwich that will cure that tummy rumble. Nothing like some Kraft Singles between two pieces of white bread.

Hastings Warehouse // 156 W Hastings St
$4.95 for a burger with bacon and a side of fries. Pretty much a no brainer. But be careful, because they charge extra for everything.

Bon's off Broadway // 2451 Nanaimo St
Bon's is an East Van staple. $2.95 for a huge breakfast with enough grease to soak up all of last night's Jameson.

Bao Down // 12 Powell St
Gastown's trendiest Asian Fusion joint. I'm addicted to the Bao Chicka Bao Bao, and for $6, I ain't complaining.

Wakwak Burger formerly Hamburger $2.85 // 511 Granville St
After some rebranding, they changed their name from Hamburger $2.85 to Wakwak Burger. They have updated their menu a bit, and it now includes a Japanese style burger as well as the original hamburgers and cheeseburgers for $2.85.
