It's the weekend, so you're probably not in the mood to cook. But if it's not payday, you also don't want to spend too much on eating out. You may think a cheap restaurant meal is hard to come by, but we've already shown you that dining out in Davenport doesn't have to break the bank. Rock Island also has a large selection of local eateries that are both tasty and affordable. And like with Davenport, we went totally local because it's so important to keep our money in the Quad Cities.  Here are 5 cheap places to dine out in Rock Island and their Yelp reviews.

1. La Rancherita

"I got the large combo. It was great. Comes with a taco, an enchilada, toastada, rice and beans for $8.50 it's a lot of food!  Also had an horchata to drink. I got mine with steak and it was the best Mexican restaurant steak I've had. Everything met and exceeded my expectations. Five stars"

3. Alfano's Pizza

"Best pizza EVER!!! ALWAYS constant with flavors, price and customer service. Every time I go home eat a small pizza."

4. Cool Beanz Coffeehouse

"This is my favorite coffee house in the Quad Cities. Excellent house blend; mild but flavorful. Menu includes panini's, wraps, salads, breakfast, pastries, etc. Tuna Melt and Gourmet Grilled Cheese are both very good. Free WiFi and homey atmosphere. The owner and employees are very friendly and make you feel you are appreciated. It's right next to Augustana College."
