If you google “cheap eats in Greenwich,” you’ll have to go through a bunch of pages about all the great restaurants in England and Greenwich Village before you find anything in our town, which is not exactly known for being cheap. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. When you get an urge for good, cheap food (and who doesn’t) here’s a round up of the top four places to go in Greenwich, no train ticket required.

Burgers, Shakes and Fries

The name says it all: Burgers, Shakes and Fries. You have to respect a restaurant that knows its niche. “Designer” burgers are all the rage these days with Shake Shack drawing lines and New York Time Magazine cover stories. Owner and chef, Kory Wollins may not yet have the Shake Shack hype, but many claim that he makes the best cheeseburger in Fairfield County. So what makes the BSF burger so good? Wollins uses a meat that is ground fresh daily from a local meat house. Order the cheeseburger and you will not be disappointed.

302 Delavan Avenue, Greenwich

Glory Days Diner

Our favorite diner in Greenwich is aptly named — open since 1984 (originally as “Greenwich Colonial”) many of us can recall the “glory days” of our high school youth spent hanging out late night at this Greenwich institution. The big portions here give you a lot of bang for your buck, which is something to smile about — no matter how old you are. Regardless of what time we go to Glory Days, their classic breakfast items always hit the spot.  

69 East Putnum Avenue, Greenwich

Upper Crust Bagel

Any decent “cheap eats” list has to have a bagel place. The family owned Upper Crust is beloved in the 06870 area code — in large part due to their vast selection of bagels that includes flavors like Cajun, Banana Walnut or Pesto. While you try to decide what kind to order, check out fun photos on the wall and artwork from local school children. The bagels will bring you in the door but the extensive selection of sandwiches, salads and catered items will bring you back. For cheap eats to please the whole family, this is your spot.

197 Sound Beach Avenue, Old Greenwich

Planet Pizza

This pizza joint may not look like much but it delivers where it counts, on taste and price. Plus it caters to the sophisticated and health conscious needs of its local clientele with options like gluten free pizza. Planet Pizza is the perfect standby for those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking or if you’re in need of a quick bite before hopping on the train. And with 11 locations in Connecticut and Westchester County, you can satisfy your urge for a Planet Pizza even when you’re out of the neighborhood.

28 Railroad Avenue, Greenwich
