Downtown Concierge


Lunch breaks are back in Downtown Columbus and now you can get $10 to try someplace new. All you need to do is head to one of the distribution locations around Downtown (listed below) on Tuesday or Wednesday from 11 am – 2 pm to get a ticket good for $10 toward a meal from participating restaurants. 

Then for the delicious part. Pick your favorite place from the list below and get ready to treat your tastebuds. But don’t delay – vouchers are only valid on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for lunch (11 am – 2 pm) the week they are distributed. NOTE: Vouchers are limited each day and only available while supplies last.  Arriving at 11 am is your best bet!

We’ll be adding restaurants each week so check back frequently for more of your favorites or new menus to peruse. 

Now through September 28!
Tuesdays & Wednesdays
11 am – 2 pm

NEW! Now on Tuesdays, you can pick up your LunchBucks at the Pearl Market. Scroll down for all the details about where to get your LunchBucks. 

How it Works

Receive. Eat. Repeat. It’s that easy!

Receive. Head to one of the four pick-up locations below to get your voucher on a Tuesday or Wednesday between 11 am – 2 pm (one per person per week). Claim your voucher by providing your name, email and zip code on-site. 

Eat. Take your ticket to a participating Downtown restaurant and receive $10 off your dine-in or carryout order. Remember, vouchers are only valid on Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 am – 2 pm on the week they are issued.

Repeat. Stop by every week to eat your way through new and tried-and-true restaurants around Downtown.

Important Details

  • We’ll only be distributing 200 tickets per week and we expect them to get snatched up quickly! When we say “while supplies last” we mean it, so don’t wait to get yours each day.
  • There’s no such thing as a free lunch. While this is a great, low-cost way to be reintroduced to delicious Downtown dishes, be prepared to pay for the remainder of your meal and please tip based on the pre-voucher value of your meal. Remember, this is about supporting our small businesses!
  • Vouchers are only valid at participating Downtown locations listed on our website. Check back each week for the latest and greatest list of locations.
  • LunchBucks can’t be used on orders including booze, so you’ll have to imbibe on your own dime.
  • You must be at least 18 years old to claim a LunchBucks voucher.
  • We’re going retro with these rewards. Tickets must be picked up in person and redeemed in real life for dine-in or carryout orders. They can’t be applied to online orders.

UPDATE: Starting July 5, we’re making a few changes.

  • All distribution locations will be reserving a portion of their weekly vouchers for Wednesday. While quantities will still be very limited each week, we will have some LunchBucks available both days. We’ll update this website as we run out each day so check frequently for the latest information.

  • This means we’ll have fewer LunchBucks to distribute on Tuesdays. We’ll do our best to ensure queues don’t exceed available quantity, but we appreciate your understanding if you’re unable to get a voucher.

  • While we encourage you to arrive promptly at 11 am for your best chance both days, we also kindly ask that you do not begin lining up prior to 10:45 am. This is to ensure all buildings can conduct their usual business and maintain safe ingress and egress.

As with any new offering, there’s certainly a learning curve. We appreciate your patience as we adjust!
