Did you know that Boston on Budget has a page just for the everyday food and restaurant deals that occur regularly in the Boston area?! The tab Always Cheap Eats shares the best deals and discounts at various restaurants in the city that you can grab daily and/or weekly, without a coupon or secret code word!
The best part about the Always Cheap Eats page is that is has been updated for 2013 thus far. There are both additions and subtractions to the page from last summer, and hopefully it is a little easier to read. I also added the restuarant websites to the list and the direct link to the promotion from the sites, if applicable. The majority of the deals were listed directly on the restaurants website, but I needed to call to confirm a few. If a promo is no longer valid or incorrect, please let me know in the comment section under Always Cheap Eats so I can update it as soon as possible. Also, if I missed a great deal in Boston, let me know!
Don’t forget to call or check with the restaurant about the deal beforehand. Although the blog does its best to keep the list updated, promos and specials can end very quickly, so make sure you check before you get your check from the restaurant!
Here’s the list of restaurants offering wicked good cheap eats in 2013, and as always, you can find them here as well.
