Cheap & Good Eats: Top 5 Budget Lunch Spots in The Woodlands for Your Dining Pleasure

We've been rounding up our favorite budget lunch spots in different neighborhoods around town (See the complete list at the end of the post).

Today, we've moved outside the loop to the ever-expanding Woodlands area. With tons of families and new developments, including ExxonMobil's soon-to-be-completed 385-acre campus, the already-booming restaurant scene is sure to continue growing. While there are tons of upscale hotspots around, we're looking at the places that offer quick and cheap, but still fantastic, lunches.

Here's our list of the best cheap (less than $10) lunch spots that this area has to offer:

Honorable Mention: Pallotta's Italian Grill, located just east of I-45 in Conroe, for their classic Italian and $5.95 weekday pasta specials; Jax Burgers, Fries and Shakes, for their upside-down burgers, garlic fries, and thick shakes; and Kim Son Café, for their Vietnamese vermicelli bowls and pho.
