Cheap Eats: 50-cent sandwich?! You're kidding me!

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - I hit the road early, heading north to a fish lover's dream. Thanks to an email from Roy Merrill, I stopped by Daddy T's. I caught the cook coating catfish filets and couldn't look away. The fries went in and soon both foods were frying away in. It was quite a journey from cook to customer. The first Cheap Eat I found was a three piece catfish dinner, fries, hushpuppies and a drink that only costs you $4.89.

Next up, I gave some fried pies a try in Lindale. At Sandy's Pies and More their name said it all. Inside, the menu spelled out your second Cheap Eat. A fried meat pie, fries and an iced tea will only cost you $4.87.

My final discovery of the day happened just north of Kilgore. Crazy Bob's BBQ lives up to it's name offering some crazy deals of their own.

"A lot of people think sloppy joes are real fatty," said Bridget Tucker. "These aren't fatty at all they're all meat.

You get a sloppy joe, chips and a drink for $4, making it the winner for this week's Cheap Eats!

And, if that's not good enough, Crazy Bob's told us a deal that truly is crazy. Tuesdays after 5pm they offer sloppy joes for just $.50.
