EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Our first "Cheap Eats" stop was at Neely's in Marshal. It's an establishment that has been putting good food on the table since 1927.
"We're known for the Brown Pig which is fresh pork ham chopped kinda fine with mayonnaise and a spicy barbecue sauce," said the owner of the restaurant.
Putting it together in the back, they brought out the magic for your mouth. A pulled pork sandwich, chips and a drink will only put you out $4.56.
Our next stop was in Lindale at Pop's Honey Fried Chicken. I'm not a mathematician, so I just picked some options and let Pop's crew go to work. They grabbed their famous fried chicken and some french fries and brought me their "Cheap Eats" deal. A filling plate with your choice of chicken, a small fry, a drink, with a couple rolls for just $4.84.
Up next, we head to Dub's Bar-be-cue in Lindale, where owner Art Colvin just started a new lunch deal.
"We created it as a lunch special and it's a chopped beef sandwich or a sliced beef sandwich with a drink for under five bucks," he said.
Sounded good to me so I let them do what they do...good barbecue. After some bun toasting the goods were delivered and I got my "Cheap Eat" fix. It was a chopped beef sandwich and a coke at a price of $4.60. Oh yeah!
My final stop in Lindale was Victor's New York Deli, where customers go for a unique eating experience.
Where else in Lindale can you get a New York style deli sandwich? I did one better and opted for the Dirty Water Hot Dog. Its key ingredients put it a cut above: Boar's Head frankfurters and homemade chili. Owner Victor Thomas brought the deal to me. It was a classic New York style chili dog and a coke for, count it, $4.30 making it this week's "Cheap Eats" champion.
