cheap and healthy meals at restaurants

I'm trying to cook as often as possible but I've been doing some property repairs with some of my relatives so am away from home during lunch hour. My relatives refuse to eat packed lunches and tbh, if they had the willpower to eat packed lunches I could too but seeing them eat restaurant meals, well I want to too.

So, any recommendations on cheap yet healthy meals we can get at restaurants or sit down meals at a grocery store?

I know of two cheap eats in my area. Mcdonalds has an app that gives you amazing discounts like sandwiches for only $1. And there is a local restaurant too with deals. Both of these however are terribly unhealthy and I'm trying to be healthier while saving money at the same time.


Thanks.

As cheap as possible while still being healthy. Cheap could mean just lest money or it could mean huge portions so I get double meals out of a dish. Taste isn't that important (just needs to be decent) as I do this maybe 1 meal, 3 days a week at most. I've been paying like $15 per meal sometimes during my lunches which is ok but would like cheaper than that. I was hoping $5 a meal or less which is actually quite possible given a say denny's sized breakfast can usually be 2 meals for me (but they aren't healthy so don't count).

Chicken and vegetable taco! You can also make it at home. Had tried it and it was amazing. My family also loved it.
