Living in a city with as much incredible food as Memphis, it’s hard to stay in for dinner night after night. But being on a college budget doesn’t have to keep you from eating great food. Check out these daily specials at restaurants across the city where you can get delicious meals at a discounted price:
1. Monday: Steak at The Green Beetle
The Green Beetle is a cozy dive bar on S. Main that has one of the best burgers in town. If you’re craving a steak dinner, check out their Monday night special: $10 for a steak and baked potato after 4pm.
2. Tuesday: Fish and Chips at Celtic
If you’re looking for some authentic Irish cuisine, Celtic Crossing is the place to go. Eating their 2 for 1 fish and chips deal in Celtic’s pub atmosphere will spice up any Tuesday. The special lasts all day.
3. Wednesday: Hot Dogs at Chiwawa
Chiwawa, founded by a Rhodes grad, is a great spot for some Memphis-style Mexican fare. They’re known for their tacos and hotdogs with a variety of funky toppings—try the BBQ and slaw—and all day on Wednesday, hotdogs are half off!
4. Thursday: Bottomless Spaghetti at Dino’s
Walk one block over to Dino’s on McClean for Thursday night bottomless spaghetti for $7.50. You can choose between garlic butter, marinara, and meat sauce, and eat as much garlic bread as you possibly can. The deal starts at 4 p.m.
5. Saturday: Oysters at Mortimer’s
Head down Summer Avenue on Saturday night for 60-cent oysters at Mortimer’s. The restaurant is full of Big Star memorabilia and is known for its tasty steak and chicken options.
