It’s Lent Season again? Sea you later, folks.
*Update for Friday April 11* There’s still a little time left in the Lenten season. If you’ve made it this far not eating meat on Fridays, well done. Here’s a reminder of some of the restaurant options serving fish specials on the cheap today.
Arby’s: Instead of the classic roast beef, you can enjoy the Reel Big Fish Sandwich. Arby’s often offers these sandwiches at two for $5, but make sure to check ahead of time that your particular location is observing that deal (not all of them do).
Cheeseburger in Paradise: The title of this business might make you think you have to pass on it today, but don’t be fooled. On Fridays during Lent, Cheeseburger in Paradise offers you all the hand-battered, golden-fried Fish and Chips you can eat. The endless fish is yours for only $12.99.
Hardee’s: You can choose between the Charbroiled Cod Fish Sandwich ($3.99) and the new Charbroiled Cod Fish Taco ($2.39). Since you have multiple Fridays to navigate during Lent, you could come back and try the other one next week.
Jack in the Box – Jack brings back the Fish Fillet sandwich combo this time of year, joining it with fries and a drink for $3.69.
On the Border – Fish Taco Fridays are back at your favorite Mexican cantina. You can choose from Dos XX or Grilled fish tacos for only $7.99 on Fridays.
Ryan’s Steakhouse – All of the Ryan’s buffet restaurants serve up seafood specials every Friday during dinner, while offering other Lent-friendly offerings daily. On a related note, Ryan’s will feature a special Easter Sunday meal on April 20.
Weber Grill – You aren’t limited to just fast food and buffets, either. Weber Grill downtown invites you to enjoy a variety of Chef Larry Donahue’s new meatless dishes throughout the Lenten season. These specials are available during lunch and dinner, and you can order them for carryout as well.
White Castle – The King of Sliders is opening up the Castle gates for “Craves from the Waves” during Lent. You have three seafood options to pick from for a limited time at White Castle. You can enjoy fish nibblers, shrimp nibblers, or fish sliders. All of them are relatively cheap, even compared to the other offerings on this list.
