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.

For many, pizza and wings are the perfect combination. Although, that particular combination didn’t become a thing with big chain restaurants until around 1995. From then on, it’s practically been a staple in the American diet. After all, pizza, and wings go together like peanut butter and jelly. Fortunantly, if you want to find great tasting food, you don’t have to travel all the way to New York City, which is practically the pizza capital of the U.S. If you’re craving some great pizza and wings near me, head over to Tony’s Pizza.
Often, where you live dictates what toppings are popular. For instance, pineapple on pizza is a California classic. While it’s always up to debate, here are some favorites we found in North Carolina.
Even though Italian immigrants brought pizza over to the U.S., pepperoni on it is more of an American thing. However, its spicy flavor blends with the cheese and tomato sauce perfectly.
With a rich earthy flavor, this tasty topping blends perfectly with both veggie and meat pizza. Better yet, mushrooms are full of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Obviously, Italian is the most common type of sausage for pizza. Although, you’ll find many other options across the continent. No matter what type you choose, this meat adds robust flavor.
Yep, you guessed. We want MORE cheese. It’s hot, gooey, bubbly and so delicious.
In the U.S., onions come in many flavors and even textures. All sorts of them are perfect to top a delicious pizza. Red onions, yellow onions, white onions and even green onions pair perfectly on an Italian pie!
Often, people disagree about wing flavors practically as much as they differ on pizza toppings. Similar to pizza toppings, where you live often determines what the favorite wing flavors are. Here are a few that take the top spot in NC.
Originating in Buffalo, NY, these spicy wings are popular throughout the country. Traditionally, these tasty tidbits are tossed in a vinegar-based sauce laced with cayenne pepper and a few other seasonings.
Often, folks like to dip their wings in ranch. However, this dry rub bakes up crispy when you coat your meat in it. With the main ingredient being dried buttermilk powder, this flavor cools the spiciness of the other hot seasonings.
We definitely live in BBQ country and the way we eat our wings in North Carolina proves it. Not only is barbecue sauce great on chicken wings, it’s a beloved sauce for other meats as well.
With a soy sauce base, this dressing has an Asian flare. With a salty foundation combined with the sweetness of honey or sugar, this flavor is a favorite among many in the south and beyond.
Similar to teriyaki, this wing sauce has a spicy kick. Chilis turn up the heat just a notch in these Thai-inspired chicken wings.
