No man should have to suffer through scrawny ten-cent chicken wings. Ditch your local happy hour and check out five establishments serving up quality plates for mere pocket change.
Beer Revolution 4 for $4 deals
During their 4 – 6 p.m. weekday happy hour, this microbrew-centric pub serves pairs of Bavarian pretzels, a small pizza or barbecue beer ribs for only $4 per order. Might as well get one of each. 1080 8th St S.W., 403-264-2739
Cibo $5 pizza happy hour
Swing by this new Italian restaurant any time between 2 and 5 p.m. during the week for a selection of $5 pizzas and $3.75 select pints. If you want something else, the entire menu remains extremely affordable. 1012 17 Ave S.W., 403-984-4755
Libertine Free Pig Roast
What’s better than cheap? We’d have to say “free.” This slick pub does a complimentary whole pig roast every Thursday night starting at 5 p.m. If you’re only mildly carnivorous, put the cash you’re saving towards a nice side salad. 223 8 Ave S.W., 403-265-3665
Mighty Skillet $8 Eggs Benny (pictured)
As far as food trucks go, these guys have the most economically priced menu in the entire city — and great portions. Where else can you get an eggys benny with a side of hashbrowns for only $6? That’s right: Nowhere. On wheels, 403-880-1778
Pig and Duke $2 fish tacos
Head to this pub every Tuesday night for fish tacos stacked with fresh ingredients for only $2 a piece. Now, we know we were knocking wing nights earlier, but The Pig and Duke’s is an exception…Thursday’s “wing” night features frog legs (seriously) and duck wings for only 45 cents each. Honey garlic frog legs? Yes, please! 1312 12 Ave S.W., 403-245-8487
