exps135855_TH2257746A07_07_3bA Queen Bee always eats like a queen…but what if she’s also on a budget? We understand. Many real-life queens have to keep a tight hold on their purse strings–but it doesn’t mean you can’t still eat like a queen.

It just means you have an opportunity to be more creative. That’s why we are publishing a weekly Queen on a Budget menu.
