Winner, winner chicken dinner on Tax Day!
In the United States, April 15 ranks up there as one of the worst days of the year. Tax Day. The day by which everyone must file their individual income tax returns to the federal government. Bye bye, money.

In an effort to lessen the blow, many businesses offer freebies or discounts on and around April 15. They're all chain restaurants, of course, but every little bit helps, right?

Now who wants a cookie?

The crispy whole catfish at our No. 4 spot is topped with fried pork skin. Need we say more?
We've been rounding up our favorite budget lunch spots in different neighborhoods around town (See the complete list at the end of the post).

This week, we're moving to the dining mecca that is Chinatown. With its huge number of incredible and authentic restaurants -- from family favorites like Fung's Kitchen to younger, hipper joints like Mala Sichuan Bistro (where you'll want to spend more than $10) -- it was hard to narrow the list down. But, of course, we did.

With a focus on fantastic cuisine and even more fantastic prices, here's our list of the best cheap (less than $10) lunch spots that this area has to offer:

Honorable mention: Chicken pho at Pho Ga Dakao and Pho Thai Binh (for dry pho), the two lobster special at Confucius Seafood, sushi lunch specials at Sushi Miyagi.

$5 Fridays at Randall's: Discounts to Kick Off Your Weekend

Flash just one Abe Lincoln for these deals.

When you hear "$5," you might think immediately of Subway's infamous January campaign for discount footlong subs. But I suggest you redirect your thoughts such that your association becomes "$5 = Randall's," at least on Fridays, when the supermarket chain offers a series of promotions that all cost $5.

The deli and prepared-food deals are particularly appealing, especially at the end of the week, when you do not feel like cooking but don't want to splurge on takeout. For example, on a recent Friday, rotisserie chickens (normally $8 each) were marked down to $5; other $5 options I've observed include family-size portions of meatloaf, fried chicken, and macaroni and cheese. (So far, no $5 lobster deals, but I still have hope.)

Bike sharing program B-Cycle is helping to make tons of bars and restaurants bicycle-accessible.

We're also happy to say that our fair city has come a long way in terms of bicycling accessibility in recent years. Sure, we have a long way to go, but these pedal-friendly bars and restaurants are helping to lead the cause:

Our No. 5 pick makes a Frito pie mac & cheese...Need we say more?
We've been rounding up our favorite budget lunch spots in different neighborhoods around town (See the complete list at the end of the post).

This time, we're moving to the antique shop, bungalow, and dining mecca that is the Houston Heights. There were certainly no shortage of great eateries before, but in the past year even more have been popping up -- like the much-anticipated fried chicken joint Funky Chicken, market-restaurant-hybrid Heights General Store, and soulful Cajun spot Mozelle's Cajun Seafood Market.

We're excited about the new guys, but we've narrowed down the list to a few tried-and-true favorites. Here's our list of the best cheap (less than $10) lunch spots that this area has to offer:

Note: For the purposes of this list, "the Heights" is defined as south of Loop 610 West, east of North Shepherd, north of the Katy Freeway and west of Airline Drive.

Honorable Mention: Hot dogs at Happy Fatz and the new storefront of Good Dog Houston, the Tex-Mex lunch specials at Teotihuacan Mexican Café, and gravy-dipped beef sandwiches at Chicago Italian Beef.
