Arlington Restaurant Deals – 2012 Edition
  • John Fontain December 28, 2011 - 12:43 pm #45807 Reply

    Some restaurants offer “half price burgers” on a certain night of the week.  Others have “kids eat free” specials.  Still others have “half price appetizers” during happy hour.  I thought it might be helpful if we gathered the collective wisdom of Arlnow readers and compiled a list of restaurant food deals available on different nights of the week.  Then, if you ever wanted to go out for a bite to eat and were looking for a deal, you'd have a resource to turn to.

    Some posting suggestions that will help make this list as beneficial as possible:

    -Format your contributions concisely for ease of use.  For example, “Monday – Half price burgers all day – XYZ Restaurant.”

    -List only recurring deals.  Please don't list a special that is for “this Tuesday only” because next Tuesday that deal won't be of any use on this list.  Please also exclude groupon deals, etc.

    -Post only really good deals.  I'm talking half price, buy one get one (BOGOs), etc.  Why?  Most people aren't going to go out of their way to save $1 on nachos, so please exclude the little deals.

    -Include great deals from all nearby restaurants – locals, chains, etc.

    -Please don't turn this topic thread into a critique of food dishes.  If Joey posts “Saturday – Half price omelets from 9am to noon – ABC Restaurant,” please don't waste time telling us your unabridged thoughts on the western omelet.

    Very cool! Thank you!

    It seems the Arlington Happy Hours web site is out of date or inaccurate. I'm not sure who maintains it.

    Half price burgers abound:

    Monday – Whitlow's

    Tuesday – Jay's Saloon and Spider Kelly's (both have beer deals too)

    Wednesday – 11th street lounge, Mister Day's


    Not the most high-end establishments, but good tasting stuff for cheap.


    The happy hour at Piola is good in my opinion too – only bottles, wine, and mixed drinks (no draft beers), but I like the roving cocktail waiters with trays of free appetizers.


    Another “deal” that only exists part of the year is extended restaurant week specials. In the past Willow, Liberty Tavern, 3, and Lyon Hall, off the top of my head, have done them at one time or another.

    I haven't been there in a week or two, but wasn't Pete's running a half price pizza deal for dine in on Mondays?

    Just went to BGR and found out they have $2 beer all the time

    Right on to the Pete's and Mexicali Blues suggestions. Idk why everyone hates on Mexicali so much; their food tastes good to me and with half off you're coming in way cheaper than Baja Fresh or CalTort.
