10 under $10: Ten more Orlando lunches for less than a Hamilton 

Welcome to our monthly roundup of places to get lunch for less than $10. This month, we place a focus on restaurants south of downtown; some of these businesses have been adversely affected by street closures after the Pulse nightclub shootings. If you’ve got a 10 Under $10 suggestion, send it to jyoung@orlandoweekly.com.

Brick and Fire
1621 S. Orange Ave., 407-426-8922, brickandfire.com
An 8-inch personal pizza is $5.95, and toppings are $1 each, so add three or four (we like gyro meat, olives and spinach) and stay under your 10-buck limit.

Carol's Place
3421 S. Orange Ave., 407-251-8860
Do breakfast for lunch at this homey diner, or choose traditional weekday lunch specials like meatloaf, pot roast, hot open-faced turkey and more. But get there early; they close at 2 p.m.

Treat yourself to a plate of conch fritters ($6.99) and a beer, sit by the lake and try to forget you have to go back to work at some point.
