Going out to eat all the time can get expensive, but it's nice to have someone else do the cooking and most importantly the clean up.  We want you to enjoy more time with your family and friends rather than cooking and cleaning up every night, so treat yourself to one of these great meals that's easy on the purse or wallet.

One of the cheapest meals in the Twin Ports belongs to the stars of 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' on the Food Network, the world famous Anchor Bar on Tower Ave. in Superior.

They feature some of the best burgers you can find and the fries aren't bad either.  Chances are you can get that great American combo for under $5,  unless you're really hungry and go for the Anchorburger or the triple patty Gallybuster than you might spend $6.

Plus you're in for a visual treat as the Anchor is decorated with things that would make the 'American Pickers' jealous.

So next time your craving a great burger on the cheap stop by the Anchor Bar.
