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:
Sonic – America’s Drive-In offers more than just burgers and fries. They also offer 25 different flavors of milk shakes. They have the usual standards (chocolate, vanilla, etc.) but also offer flavors like peanut butter, cheesecake, and more. And it’s a better deal after dark. After 8:00 p.m., Sonic serves these milk shakes for half price through the end of this week for many locations.
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.
Wendy’s – Wendy’s has a special feast after dark that is only available after 10:00 p.m. Many Wendy’s locations are open until midnight or even later, so you can take your late night cravings here too. Their best after dark deal is the $5 Moon Light Meal. This meal which includes a Double Stack burger, Chili Cheese Fries, and a large drink will leave you starry-eyed.
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.
