Figuring out what to feed yourself or family can be a daily, and sometimes frustrating, task. Especially if there are multiple picky eaters in your house. If you can’t figure out what to eat for lunch, Tony’s Pizza can help. Here are five fun lunch ideas to consider. Or, if you’re looking for a quicker option, drop by Tony’s Pizza for a delightful slice of pizza, sub, salad, stromboli, wings…whatever you desire! Don’t forget, we’ve got daily lunch specials too.
According to a recent survey, American’s favorite things to eat at mealtime include:
Likewise, other top favorites are sandwiches, chicken nuggets/tenders, and salads.
If you have family members who are creatures of habit, get creative! Try new twists on their favorites. Consider ways to make your lunch globally-inspired. Therefore, you can introduce new flavors and/or textures without reaching too far beyond your family’s comfort zone.
Here are a few examples:
If you get creative and add in a few interesting ingredients, it encourages your family to try new things. Often, they’re less likely to turn up their noses at something completely unfamiliar when it’s fun.
For good reason, charcuterie boards are the thing to do. They’re flexible and encourage people to try a wide range of foods during a single meal. As a fun lunch option, make a version that your kids will love too.
Typically, a charcuterie board showcases upscale cured pork products. Moreover, many also include nuts, cheese, fruits, vegetables, crackers, spreads, and dipping sauces. On your lunchtime charcuterie board for the kids, add:
Likewise, add any other snacky foods in your house as well. Experiment with a few more unusual options to encourage picky eaters to try new things. Give foods such as hummus, kiwi or other tropical fruits and pickles a chance to become beloved favorites.
Let’s face it, mornings can become rushed, so it isn’t always possible to make pancakes or waffles. Make them for a fun lunch instead and include a toppings bar that kids (and – who are we kidding – adults too!) will love. Here are a few fun toppings to try on your pancakes or waffles:
Better yet, make your waffle/pancake bar a bit healthier with tasty tidbits like fresh fruit, nuts, and honey. Conversely, you can get indulgent for a special occasion and pull out those delightful candy toppings.
A fun lunch alternative to sandwiches and wraps are Quesadillas. Since they’re so easy to customize, you can please everyone. If you want to make tortillas at home, mix together 2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup of water, and a pinch of salt. Kids love to help you knead the dough. Once their little hands knead it into a smooth consistency, let it rest for ten minutes. Then, divide it into 8 balls and roll into thin circles. Cook in a greased pan for a few minutes.
Naturally, you can also choose the easier route with a store-bought version as well. Either way, plop one tortilla in the pan and top with your desired fillings. This is a great way to use leftover ground beef, steak, pulled pork, or chicken. Then, top with your favorite cheeses and a second tortilla and grill for a few minutes on each side.
Occasionally, even the best lunch ideas in the world just don’t sound satisfying. Especially, when a lot of work is involved. When you don’t know what to eat for lunch, bring yourself and the kids to Tony’s. For lunch, you can choose from full pizzas and pizza by the slice to a wide range of Italian pasta entrees, hot and cold subs, and more. Truly, there’s a little something for everyone, even if pizza isn’t your thing.
If you’re too busy to come by, we also offer delivery via Slice, DoorDash and Uber Eats. Additionally, you can call us for a carry-out order. Be sure to join our rewards program to earn points with every visit!

Our authentic family recipes bring traditional Italian food to North Carolina. With familial roots in Calabria, Italy, we grew up in Brooklyn before moving south. Read more about our journey here. We hope to see you at one of our locations for an Italian lunch soon!
At Tony’s Pizza, we serve delicious Italian fare using family recipes brought over from Italy. However, sometimes pizza and pasta just aren’t what you’re feeling. Instead, you’re craving a fresh salad filled with veggies and other delightful toppings. If you’re trying to find good salads near me, Tony’s Pizza is your place!
It’s a fact, adults should be eating 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day. Notably, the CDC reports that only about 10% of American adults are doing this. Unfortunately, in North Carolina, our numbers are even lower than the national average. About 9.5% of adults eat the recommended amount of vegetables daily. We can help improve that amount now that you’ve found good salads near me at Tony’s Pizza!
Truly, salads pack a lot of vegetables into one meal. Incorporating them into a healthy diet helps prevent many health conditions, including some types of cancer, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

These are just a few of the tasty toppings available. Likewise, we also offer a variety of yummy dressings.

If salad, pasta and pizza aren’t your thing, we also have a fantastic sub menu. For meals on the go, subs are perfect. Our options include hot and cold.

Ask for your sub served the Tony’s way and you’ll get cheese, banana peppers, onions, mayo, lettuce, tomato, oil, and vinegar. Or, choose it Philly style for cheese, bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. Again, we’ll customize your sub with other toppings if you prefer.
We also have 4 types of parmigiana subs (sausage, eggplant, chicken, and meatball), each baked with marinara sauce and cheese. Similarly, you can try one of our other popular sub options: Italian, turkey, veggie, or sausage, peppers, and onions. Be sure to add one of our side salads to include those vegetables in your meal.
