Let's have a quick lunch.

Quick is an adjective (followed by a noun). It describes a noun.

We eat lunch quickly, because we have no time. 

Quickly is an adverb, it describes a verb. 

We make adverbs from adjectives, adding - ly

Some adjectives can end both in -ed or in -ing

Ex. The book was interesting
      I was interested in the book. 

      The lesson was boring
