Let's face it, often the three most important parts of the day are breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And that's why here at SanDiegoMagazine.com, we're beefing up our food and restaurant coverage by shining the spotlight on tasty meals under $10. Foie gras and Kobe beef still have a place at our table, but these meals are so reasonably priced, you can eat them every day.

Any day of the week, just about everything on the menu at Hodad's qualifies for Everyday Eats status, but until the end of March, the burger basket combo is so affordably priced that you could treat a friend and both meals would fall within the $10 or less cut-off. $5 gets you a cheeseburger, veggie burger, or chicken sandwich with a heap of thick-cut, seasoned fries. You might as well print out several coupons, since the offer lasts until the end of March (downtown location, Monday to Thursday only).

I like to nix the onions, ketchup, and mustard on my burger (for a more focused, straight-forward flavor) but other options include adding bacon (highly recommended), swapping out the slice of American for blue cheese, adding some pastrami, or going for grilled onions (by default, they come raw and more than generously portioned). The downtown location also has some new items featuring chili, like chili fries and chili cheeseburgers.

The smaller burger is a great size for lunch, and there's about 2 large potatoes' worth of battered, seasoned fries alongside it, so you'll leave full even if you come in with a raging case of hunger pangs. Feeling thirsty? They've got all the standard sodas, lemonade, and iced tea, plus craft brews and giant milkshakes.
