Some insider knowledge we like to keep for ourselves--like the secret parking lot for the Variety Playhouse, or what pools we like to sneak in during the summer. Some, however, are just flat awesome, and we can't help but spill the secret--like the one about these $5 steak sandwiches. Read on!

There is no $5 wash advertised at the always-popular Cactus, so you just have to say, ?give me the $5 wash please.? Now this isn't getting close to any kind of detail-oriented job, but for the summertime months, it'll work in a pinch. As an added bonus, there is free wifi.

You won't find these jokers on the menu at the Palm, the cartoon-decorated steakhouse that specializes in amazing amounts of expensive surf 'n' turf. Pony up to the bar and rock some swagger when you order these bad boys. Atlanta's most potent trio are filled with filet mignon and dressed in heavy Bearnaise, certainly worth the $18 price tag.
In what is maybe the coolest DIY move ever by a bar, dive-tastic Elliott's in Castleberry Hill brings the thunder, old-school style, by setting up a self-serve keg of rotating IPA beers (with a chalkboard honor system) for $3. Every day. And while this part is no secret, their sandwiches wrapped in butcher paper are well worth it.
That Truett Cathy sure sticks to his guns. For everyone in the South who swears at the man when they crave Chick Fil A on the one day they aren't open (Sunday), he offers this as consolation: Bring in your church bulletin as proof you observed the Sabbath and get a free chicken sandwich.
Celeb chef Nobu Matsuhisa does a sea urchin tempura at his famed LA and NY restaurants, but you can't find this delicacy on any menu in the A-T-L. Never fear. Head to one of the most authentic Japanese restaurants in the city, Nakato, request it and impress the chef at the same time.
From 5pm-7pm everyday, Morton's the Steakhouse breaks from its usually expensive ways and offers up a tray of it's appetizer steak sandwiches for a mere $5. If steak isn't your thing, their entire appetizer menu is half-off, and we recommend the crab dip.

When you think of the beverage menus at mogul-owned, fine-dining Pan Asian establishments, unique beers for $10 a pop come to mind. (Ahem, Spice Market.) However, Luda's Singaporean jewel, Straits, does $1.50 Tiger beer every day, leaving you with more money to spend on their kung pao lollipops.
This spot off Briarcliff Road serves normal Americanized Thai and sushi six days a week. That is, of course, until Sunday brunch when they pull out the handwritten, home-cooked noodle menu that is all about authenticity, driving those of Thai descent to flock to this Druid Hills eatery.
