Enough with the strip club jokes--those bills are for the dollar deals in Houston. That's right, there is food and drink all around this city that will only set you back $1. It's not just tacos and sliders that get discounted to a buck either, but martinis and mimosas too. So scrounge up a fiver and spend it on something worth a lot more.

One of the sexiest, coolest places to see and be seen during happy hour also happens to be a good place to save a few dollars. Reuben sliders and oysters on the half shell are $1 and for a few bucks extra, order crispy stuffed olives and the daily whiskey beverage too.
There's something about being in a classy, highly-rated restaurant that makes us feel content--even better when the place is offering dollar deals. During happy hour from 4pm-7pm Monday through Friday, Reef offers shrimp shooters and sliders for only $1.
During happy hour between 5-7pm Monday through Friday, sixteen types of sushi are $1 (and there are more for only a quarter extra). Two bucks gets you an Asahi or Kirin as well, but expect to get here early if you have any hopes of getting a table.
While Sunday brunch at Rainbow Lodge is not a particular bargain, they're throwing us a bone by offering 99 cent mimosas and champagne until 3pm to go with our admittedly extravagant order of cast iron seared red snapper and side of white corn griddle cakes.
