Foodies Beware: Ridiculously cheap eats ahead already offers reviews and recommendations to the best hotels and restaurants, but now the online guide created a Web site promising inexpensive eats that still satisfy. The foodies over at know people like to eat good food and they also understand people don't want to spend a lot of money. That's why the Web site's mission is to find tasty treats that won't bust your wallet. The main page features dirt cheap dishes from all over the country, but bring it back to Chicago by using the search engine. There, you can select location, food type and price range (from ridiculously cheap -- $.01-$.99 to cheap -- $3-3.99). So it's Wednesday night and you're in the mood for Latin American. Hop on over to 3buckbites, select Chicago, Latin American and your price range and you could be tasting tamales at Coobah for just $3. But that's not all! depends on you -- the eater -- to submit your own inexpensive discoveries. See something super cheap and delicious the next time you're out on the town? Send a photo of your frugal food find and it could be posted on the Web site for others to try.
