Everyone knows that inflation has hit fast-food chains really hard. Even though sticker shock is prevalent, there are still some good deals to be had if you look closely. I just paid 10 dollars for the chicken sandwich meal at Burger King! 10 dollars! Value menu items are usually the best place to start saving money. The website EatThis,NotThat! has found the best fast-food burgers that you can still get for under $5 dollars.

A lot of fast-food chains offer specialty burgers with unique ingredients or flavor combinations. These usually include items like barbecue sauce, mushrooms, avocado, different types of cheese, or various condiments. Even french fries! Those burgers and combos usually get expensive. My favorite burgers are from Wendy’s or McDonald’s.

Make sure you sign up for discount emails and check the restaurant’s apps for all the deals they offer.

Here’s a list of burgers under 5 dollars. These places are in Charlotte. I’ve also added the nutritional info, because you know when you’re eating fast food you want it to be as healthy as possible! Haha.  (prices may vary depending on your location):
