Great deals and values are all around us here in Little Rock. You just have to find them. Here are eight you won’t want to miss, all located in downtown.
$1 Menu at Brown Sugar Bakeshop
Did you know that Brown Sugar has a $1 dessert menu? They do … and it’s daily! Items like blueberry muffins, rice crispy treats, and fruit tarts are included.
Weekday Lunch Special at Vino’s
I love me some Vino’s, but unfortunately, have never taken advantage of their awesome lunch deal. From 11a-2p, diners can get a dinner salad, slice of 1-topping pizza and a beverage … all for $6.45.
Dinner Special at Iriana’s
Speaking of pizza, Iriana’s currently offers a $10.99 (+ tax) dinner special on a 16-inch large pepperoni pizza. This is not available for delivery and runs Monday-Thursday (2p-10p).
Fried Catfish Wednesday at Flying Fish
Fried catfish lovers, rejoice! If you have a huge appetite, then you might want to take advantage Flying Fish’s Wednesday all-you-can-eat fried catfish special. It’s $14.99 and runs from 2p-close. That’s a great value … especially if you can eat a lot!
Growlers to Go at Boscos
At Boscos, half gallon growlers for $10 (with a $3 refundable deposit) are now available. Includes: Boscos Famous Flaming Stone Beer, Bombay IPA, Downtown Brown, Isle of Skye Scottish Ale and seasonal beers.
Assorted Antipasto ala Vincenzo at Bruno’s Little Italy
At a hefty $17 price tag, this antipasto may not seem like a great value, but I assure you, it is. Why? Well, it’s a hefty portion of meats, cheese, marinated mushrooms and various other meticulously prepared items, all on one plate. Four people could share this appetizer, thus making it a dynamite deal.
3-lb Porterhouse at Doe’s Eat Place
Remember, were talking about value here, and paying $19.50 per pound for a damn near perfectly cooked steak, is really difficult to beat. Look around, check the prices … I bet you won’t find a place that prepares a steak like Doe’s, charging that price.
½ Off Jars at South on Main
Chef Matthew Lowman’s “jars” are half off during the Local Live concerts held every Wednesday evening. It’s a great way to take in some nice music and enjoy one of the better desserts in town for a very reasonable price. Just to give you an idea of what I’m talking about, here’s a description of a typical jar: “Nilla Wafers and chantilly cream, layered with the best banana puddin’ you’ve ever had.”
