The Tri-Cities has a good selection of restaurants spanning all kinds of tastes. From Italian to Barbecue, you can pretty much find a good place to grub no matter what type of food you are looking for. But besides the menu options, what are the best cheap restaurants in the Tri-Cities?

The word cheap can sometimes take on a negative connotation, but in this sense of the word, I'm talking bang for your buck. When I've only got a few dollars to spend, these are my favorite places to satisfy my stomach.

Lee's Tahitian II - 2724 W. Lewis St., Pasco
Lee's Tahitian has been a staple in the Uptown Richland for years, and just a few months ago, Lee's Tahitian II opened it's doors. The lunch special is one of the best around, and if you are a fan of Dim Sum, this is a must. Large portions, low prices, and quick friendly service. Can't ask for much more.

Roberto's Taco Shop - 3150 W. Clearwater, Kennewick
There are lots of options for Mexican food throughout the Tri-Cities, especially when you are talking about Taco Trucks. Roberto's is one of my favorites...mostly because of their hours. If you are on the late night hunt for a good carne asada burrito, stop in anytime as Roberto's is open 24 hours.

Crazy Moose Casino - 510 S. 20th St., Pasco
The food is always good at the Moose, but on Monday's you can take advantage of the Buy One Get One burger special. These aren't your typical fast food burgers these are legitimate, made to order burgers. Grab a friend or 3 and for about $5 a piece you can enjoy one of the best burgers in town.

Sweet Treat - 1360 N. Louisiana St., Kennewick
If you are looking to grab some dessert after a meal or just want something to cool you off during the warm summer months, check out Sweet Treat near Carmike Cinemas in Kennewick. Fresh waffle cones and a great selection of Ice Cream and Yogurts. Plus, although I am still yet to try one, they have multiple flavors of bubble tea and has come highly recommended by a number of my friends. If you're up to, try your hand at the Banana has got to be one of the largest Banana splits in existence!

Gourmet Soul - 1257 Guyer Ave., Richland
I first came across Gourmet Soul a few years ago in Downtown Kennewick, now you can find some of the best barbecue in Richland. Gourmet Soul has a backyard cookout mentality and vibe. With awesome sides that compliment all the entrees perfectly, you have to give this place a try. Order up some catfish with red beans and won't be dissapointed.
