Residents at our apartments in Rogers have spent many months staying in and ordering takeout. But as we anticipate more opportunities to dine out safely in the near future, we thought now would be a good time to put together our list of tips to help you save money when you visit our local restaurants in Rogers.
Have a friend or family member you’d pick to tag along when you dine out near our apartments in Rogers? Go ahead and share this post with them so they can save money too! Now, let’s talk tips, shall we?
Take Advantage of Happy Hour Specials
You can save a lot of money during happy hour, and not just on drinks! Central and Downtown Austin provide a wealth of happy hour specials just minutes, or even steps from our apartments. Rogers residents can expect to find a good happy hour between 3:00 and 6:30 PM, which allows you plenty of time to snag those cheap appetizers and entrees. Pro tip: a couple of appetizers can easily replace a full entree while also offering more variety than ordering just one dish.
Split Large Dishes With Friends
Many restaurants in the US offer huge serving sizes, and Roger’s are certainly no exception. Take stock of which local favorites of yours serve up large portions, then go to dinner with a friend and split that large entree. This way, you can split the price of a single entree and, even if you also split an appetizer or side for a little extra food, you’re paying less than if you ordered that entree alone. Just make sure you dine with a friend whose taste in food matches up with yours.
Opt For Lunch Instead of Dinner
Most restaurants are cheaper at lunch than they are at dinner. Even the exact same entree might be priced differently at different times of the day. Snag those reduced prices by choosing to dine out for lunch instead of dinner, and your bank account will thank you. Many restaurants are also less busy around lunch compared to dinnertime, so you’ll enjoy better service and a more pleasant atmosphere too. It’s a win-win.
Get Your Food To-Go
When you don’t mind sacrificing the experience of dining in the restaurant itself, getting your order to-go can help save you money. You won’t be obligated to pay for the tip, since you won’t have a server, reducing your total bill by 20% or more. And you can still make the meal feel special if that’s important to you: take your meal back home to our Rogers, AR apartments with a friend family member and have a movie night, or enjoy a little picnic in a nearby park.
