Next - from the first person.

In the US, the average cost of a meal is about $ 10-12, or even more expensive. But for those who do not want to overpay, there is a great service Mealpal, which allows you to dine in many restaurants in the city two times cheaper.

The price of one lunch is $ 6, but you definitely need to take a "subscription" for 12 or 20 lunches, ie. immediately for one month. In the US, they rarely cook at home, so many people use this service, which by the end of the year will help to save a lot of money. You also don't have to queue to get your lunch.

All you need to do is to book a place in a certain restaurant around 17:00 the day before lunch, as demand is high and places need to be booked in advance. The next day, come to the restaurant from 11:00 to 14:00, scan the barcode and eat.

If you bought 20 dinners, then it is advisable to use everything in one month and only on weekdays. But if you do not have time, you can postpone it to the next month.

Also, you can’t choose a dish, everyone cooks the same thing, there is no choice. But you can choose any institution, so there is a choice as such.

I also know that you can order dinner, but it will cost more. Agree, a $ 12 lunch goes to $ 6 - it's very profitable.

The service is very popular. You immediately know where you will eat, you do not wait in line, you save time and money.
