I may very well be asking the impossible... but does anyone know of any carry-out lunch places in the Loop that are both good and CHEAP? I'm thinking along the lines of the better-than-it-has-any-right-to-be Pita Express in the basement of the Thompson Center (where you can get a big bag of pita crisps with thyme for 50 cents). Berghoff is way too expensive. I like the Caesar salad at Sopraffina, but I can't go there every day.

My company just moved its offices from Lincolnwood to Randolph and Michigan, so places near there would be especially appreciated. I'm totally willing to walk, but I have to be able to get there, get the food, and walk back in an hour, which makes the estimated lunch radius approximately Chicago Ave. on the north, Franklin on the west, and Jackson on the south...

Thanks much,
