Mix and Match Tacos at Dos Perros

“Taco Sunday and Monday” might not roll off the tongue in the same way “Taco Tuesday” does, but we’ll let it slide since it means we get an extra day of delicious discount tacos. Mix and match from the taco options, which are all between three and four dollars a piece. To top it off, they’ve also been known to offer $5 margaritas because they’re just too kind.

Family Meal at Pompieri

Each Sunday night, Pompieri holds “Family Meal,” where you can score an all-you-can-eat meal of pizza, salad and sides for under 20 bucks. Everything is served family-style, with chef’s flexing their creative muscles and passing around “experimental” pizzas. The night is all about good food, good friends and good conversation (there are even little convo-starter cards on the communal tables), so kick back, relax and loosen your belt—just don’t forget to save room for a scoop of gelato at the end!
