Bozeman has a very impressive restaurant scene, but many of them are extremely expensive. If you're pinching pennies until payday, here are a few places where you can still get a quality meal for less than $20.

Living paycheck to paycheck has become the norm for many Bozeman residents. The price of almost everything in the once charming mountain town has skyrocketed, and the struggle is real for a lot of locals.

Bozeman has a variety of great restaurants, but for the average resident, enjoying a night could break the bank. I'm a huge advocate of supporting local businesses instead of opting for the cheapest item on the menu at a national fast food chain. Sure, you can get a cheap cheeseburger at McDonald's, but you're not helping a local business owner that lives and works in our community.

Best Places to Eat For Under $20 in Bozeman

If you're looking for more bang for your buck, you can still get quite a bit for less than $20 in the Bozeman area. My personal favorite is Mr. Burritos near Four Corners. You can get a huge burrito for around $13 and still have enough money left over to purchase a drink.  Here are a few suggestions from our listeners.
