Restaurant Deals in Houston

Even though we eat and drink out a lot, we're still all about the Benjamins--saving them, that is--and that's where all the restaurant deals in Houston come in. What makes our juicy burgers, perfectly seared salmon and upscale decorative foams all the better is knowing that we saved a buck. Gourmet restaurants are especially interested in cutting a deal these days, but see for yourself with some of Houston's best meal deals. (Photo: guacamole at Yelapa)

Restaurant Deals in Houston

Cyclone Anaya Midtown

309 Gray St, Houston, TX 77002

Our favorite restaurant deals in Houston are definitely the ones that involve alcohol. Every Monday and Tuesday, every bottle of wine at this trendy Midtown Tex-Mex joint goes for half price.

Don Cafe

9300 Bellaire Blvd, Houston, TX 77036

This busy little Vietnamese spot throws in an extra banh mi sandwich for every order of five. Do we always order five no matter what? Yes, and our stomachs only regret it sometimes.

The Tasting Room River Oaks

2409 W. Alabama, Houston, TX 77098

If you're a wine lover, this should definitely be one of your go-to spots for restaurant deals in Houston. Every Sunday and Monday, customers receive a free pizza with any bottle purchase they enjoy in-house.

BRC Gastropub

519 Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77007

All the tantalizingly bad for you comfort food at this sultry gastropub makes it easy to drop too much money. Luckily on Monday nights, the house blended Hereford pub burger and twice cooked fries go for only $6.50.


912 St Emanuel St, Houston, TX 77003

We already love this Warehouse District restaurant for its friendly service, BYOB policy and flavorful pho broth. But with a Saturday morning skillet breakfast of steak, eggs, and Vietnamese sausage for a bargain $5, it tempts us to eat here every day.

VOICE Restaurant & Lounge

220 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002

The lush, gold-tinged dining room of this hotel restaurant wouldn't seem like a place to grab a burger and fries, but every Tuesday diners can get a burger, specially paired beer and fries for only $10. Which is nice because we refuse to eat our burgers in anywhere but a fine, upscale setting.

Gourmet Meals for Less


219 Westheimer, Houston, TX 77006

Seeing that this neo-Brit, nose-to-tail restaurant is the creme de la creme of the Houston dining scene, you?d think that bribing the hostess for a table would be enough to bankrupt you. But pork belly lovers of little means can afford to come here thanks to the under-$20 Friday and Saturday prix-fixe lunch.


516 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006

Chef Anita Jaisinghani's Indian cuisine is praised for being the best in Houston, nay in America! With that kind of recommendation, you have practically no choice in the matter. Each Thursday and Friday, a three-course prix-fixe lunch is available for $22.

Yelapa Playa Mexicana

2303 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX 77098

We counted Yelapa among 2009's best new restaurants for its innovative take on Pacific Mex-Mex dishes. Not only is the food surprising and delicious, but downright cheap. For the $12.50 nooner lunch, lucky devils can feast on Peruvian-style cebiche and a variety of tacos.


807 Taft St, Houston, TX 77019

This one goes out to all the ladies in Houston. Two Mondays a month, this Montrose establishment screens a chick flick during which diners get a three-course meal and cocktail for just $35. The menu changes to fit the movie--think shrimp and grits for ?Sweet Home Alabama? and cassoulet for ?Moulin Rouge.?

benjy's in the village

2424 Dunstan Rd, Houston, TX 77005

Trendy, often noisy Benjy's goes down home every Sunday evening restaurant deal on a three-course comfort food menu. Each $19 meal starts with a soup or salad and ends with a slice of Mom's Chocolate Cake (really and truly baked by Benjy's mom).
