Fast-food is cheap, fast and easy -- most of the time you don't even need to leave the car to get your food. Fortunately, many fast-food restaurants have even adopted a value menu that stays true to that theme. So, for those days when you just want something cheap and easy to eat, we've scoured the value menu from popular fast-food joints to find the best items for $1 or less!

Note: Prices listed below may vary by location.


Best Buck & Under Value Menu Items


McDonald's (more coupons)

In the beginning of 2019, McDonald's ditched their old value menu in lieu of a new $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu, which offers different items based on the three tiers of prices. In keeping with the theme of this article we'll focus on just the $1 tier alone.

Here is what you can now get for $1 at McDonald's:

  • Cheeseburger
  • McChicken Sandwich
  • Sausage Biscuit
  • Sausage McMuffin
  • Any Size Fountain Drink

Burger King (more coupons)

While Burger King does offer a value menu, many of the items on it peak just above $1, so unfortunately, we cannot include them on the list. However, using the trusty BK app [iOS or Android], you can still snag some items for $1 or less.

Available $1 or less items with BK app: (valid as of 7/9/19)

  • Cheeseburger for 59¢
  • Bacon Egg Cheese Biscuit for $1
  • Large French Fries for $1
  • 3 French Toast Sticks + Small Coffee for $1

Bonus Offer: use the app to get a 4-Piece Chicken Nuggets for free with any purchase!

Wendy's (more coupons)

Similar to Burger King, while Wendy's does have a value menu, many of the items are around $1.99 or more. However, if you're looking to feed your sweet tooth, then you can get a Jr. Vanilla or Chocolate Frosty for only 89¢!

Plus, right now through their app [iOS or Android] you can get a Half-Size Salad for free with any purchase. Perhaps pair that with your 89¢ Frosty for a quasi-"healthier" meal (valid as of 7/9/19).

Find your nearest Wendy's here.


Jack in the Box (more coupons)

Once a regular staple of Jack in the Box, this great 99¢ deal is now only available through app orders [iOS or Android]. That's right, I'm talking about the fabled 2 tacos for 99¢ deal. Now 2 tacos will cost you $1.29, unless you choose to shave off about 30¢ by ordering through the app.

As a bonus, you can also score Chicken Nuggets for free with any app purchase. So, pair that offer with their 2 tacos for 99¢ deal to get yourself an entire meal for under $1!
