Best lunch in Costa Mesa/Irvine/Santa Ana for under $10

Pie Not + Sidecar Donuts
- I dont have many comparisons to pie not but the crusts are buttery and flakey. The filling range from good to very good. Most of them are very rich but contrast nicely with the crust. Sidecar donuts is amazing. My favorite is the huckleberry which seems like a regular among the rotating cast of donuts.

Surfas Cafe turkey panini (Tuesday only when paninis are 35% off)
- Dietsel turkey, raclette cheese, roasted tomatoes, onion marmalade on whole grain bread with a side salad. A very good deal at $7 with the 35% off.

Taqueria 2 Guys
- any meat filled quesadilla, 3 tacos and a drink will get you under $10. The horchata is wonderful, cinammony and just the right level of sweetness. The best meats are the el pastor off the spit and chorizo. I have yet to try the lengua as it hasn't been on the menu all the time.

Anybody else? I'm looking for a good Lebanese place.
