Welcome to the board!

I find it pretty cheap to have lunches at Sonic drive in and dinners at Golden Corral. I'm the only one in my family who eats breakfast so I bring a box of cereal and buy a jug of milk once I arrive.

We always get a place with a kitchen and have breakfast and lunch in our room. We like River City Cafe (any of them) for good food, cheap.

The Great American Steak Buffet is really reasonable, and very good. You can find coupons in the books.

How much you looking to spend? Cheap to us at dinner is any place with entrees for less than $10. May not be the same for everyone. Being more specific on what you are wanting to spend for the different meals would help.

Ryan's buffet (2 locations) have a nice variety of food for the money. It's a good place to go if you have kids (or in our case grandchildren) because there's so much to choose from and a huge dessert bar.

I think you could easily do this. We always eat breakfast and lunch in the room. Usually only a sandwich and chips for lunch. Most of the early day is spent at the beach, so you can probably get by with less than $10 a day on breakfast and lunch cost. Many of the places in MB also have early bird specials and you are going to have $35 or $40 to spend on your last meal of the day. You are actually going to be able to eat at some pretty decent places for that amount of money. Driftwood in Murrels Inlet has excellent seafood on the early bird (4-6) which is $12.99 each and includes drink and dessert. Bar-b-cue House in Surfside has most entrees for around $8 each. Even if you decide to eat lunch there are plenty of fast food options with value menus. I don't think you will have much of problem with $50 for $2 people. I eat pretty good in MB and try to budget around $100 daily for 6. Many of the places also have menus available online that includes prices.. No worries about walking into a place with $25 entrees if you know the prices before going.

You'll have no problem stay under $50. Just be careful with the traps of appetizers, desserts, & drinks.

(Unless its Happy Hour)

A lot of the upper-scale dining establishments have lower-cost lunch menus. We will frequently visit the Sea Captains for lunch, then get a second lunch-order to-go and have it for dinner in the condo. The portions are pretty close to dinner-size.

You can eat for $50 a day yet you don;t need to spend $10 in gas to drive someplace to get an inexpensive meal, as there are hundreds of places available. Where you go will depend upon where you are staying and where you are in relation to the activity you are doing that day, I figure your coming in for Mustang Week and you have different activities and places you are meeting.

Look on the Mustang Week board for discounts, I know Planet Hollywood is offering one.

happy hours are a great way to eat at a resonable cost. Liberty steakhouse at broadway at the beach 7/3/12. 2 orders of chicken tenders, an order of potato wedges with bacon, cheese and ranch dressing, an order of 3 bbq pork sliders and an order of 4 large pretzels. also had 3 beers and 2 drinks for the kids and the total for it all was $37

Make sure you grab the local paper, usually a lot of advertisements for specials luring in the golfers in Oct.
