Best nights to eat out in the Burg


As a rule, college students are frugal and are always trying to get the best bang for their buck. When looking for an inexpensive night out, it can be better to look for local deals instead of settling for unhealthy, cheap choices.

Close to campus, the Home Team Grill restaurant has spectacular specials every Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesdays, the crowds pour in for half priced burgers from 4-11 p.m.

“For being around four bucks, it was worth it,” freshman sociology major Stefanie Chae said.

Wednesday is half priced wings night at Home Team. Anyone can get a pound of wings with their desired sauce, again for only five dollars from 4-11 p.m.

Conveniently located right down College Avenue is The General Store Restaurant, which offers homemade spaghetti Mondays. Anyone can have a big bowl of spaghetti, just like mama makes it, with their choice of any sauce for only five dollars.

If students are feeling a little southern, they can head over to Country Cookin’ on Tuesdays and Thursdays for some savory specials. On Tuesdays, two people can dine for only fifteen dollars – perfect for a date night. On Thursdays, the restaurant offers a very specific steak special that comes with free fried pickles.

Last, but definitely not least, Capital Ale House in downtown Fredericksburg has copious specials going on almost all week. To kick off the week, Monday is burger night. Although sides are separate, you can get a two dollar hamburger or a three dollar cheeseburger and spice it up with extras that cost only a dollar.

If students are seafood lovers, they can head down to Capital Ale House on Thursdays for endless mussels, a deal priced out at only sixteen dollars.

“For being sixteen dollars, most college students would have turned it down, but I’m glad I didn’t,” freshman psychology major Kae Hume said.

To kiss the weekend goodbye, Capital Ale House offers half priced appetizers on Sundays. It is a great deal to enjoy while watching the football game with friends.

If any college students are trying to save up money, these are the best nights to go grab a bite.
