There's no big pitch here. We're sharing lunchtime deals and steals in and around San Antonio. It's more cash in your wallet, and hopefully a tiny food baby to keep you going through the work day. 

If you're in midtown, Saigon Express (1626 McCullough Ave., 210-277-1899) is no secret. The joint with the light blue paint job has been around since 2003 and has kept area lunchers happy with lunch specials under $7 (the lemongrass chicken is a personal fave). 



If you're especially stretched for cash and you forgot to pack a lunch, the $3.75 sliced, roasted pork banh mi is a must. Served on a fresh baguette and chockablock with fresh cukes, thick jalapeño slices, chingos of cilantro and carrots, this sandwich will keep you sated until 5 p.m. 

Saigon Express is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
