We’ve all been there. Dinner ended a few hours ago, the sun has gone down … and you’re hungry. As you sit there after dark with your stomach growling, you start to contemplate your options. Going to bed hungry doesn’t appeal much to you, but going out and paying full price for what night owls often refer to as “Fourth Meal” doesn’t sound particularly responsible.
Not to worry, as we know of a few restaurants that run specials specifically for after dark. Hopefully you find something on the following list that can take care of that craving on the cheap:
Smokey Bones – From 10:00 p.m. to close every day at Smokey Bones, the menu heats up for the “Best Bites for Late Night” promotion. You can choose from a limited menu of items available for anywhere from $4 to $7 each. Check out the full menu by clicking the red lettered link, and then smoke our your late night hunger.
Steak n Shake – Speaking of milkshakes, we had to bring up the King of Shakes. Most people are aware that Happy Hour at Steak n Shake means half price milkshakes from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. What you may not recall is that Steak n Shake doesn’t discriminate based on p.m. or a.m. That means that from 2:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m., you can still enjoy Happy Hour after dark. And with new shake flavors including red velvet and salted caramel pretzel, you’ll be glad you did.
Applebee’s – Talk about things the go mmmm in the night. Applebee’s locations start serving half-priced appetizers after 9:00 p.m. as part of their late night special.
Uno Pizzeria & Grill: Dine from 9 pm to close here on weeknights and watch the prices on some delicious food drop this season. Monday night, it’s the $3.50 build your own burger, Tuesday features the $5 individual deep dish pizza and Wednesday you can chow down on 50 cent wings or bites (minimum order of 4, please). This one is for a limited time only.
McDonald’s – While this offer isn’t necessarily available at every McDonald’s, many locations now offer After Midnight menus. These menus feature a combination of breakfast and dinner items so that whichever meal of the day you’re craving, you’ll find your fix at the Golden Arches in the middle of the night.
