Where to chase a cheap eat in Brisbane

Day before payday? Splurged on the weekend? There are plenty of reasons as to why you might be chasing a cheap eat in Brisbane, and it’s about getting creative with your cash, so your taste buds and bank account don’t have to clash! See what we did there? 😉

Growing up, you may have been familiar with the term ‘cheap Tuesday’, which was all about two videos for the price of one. Nowadays it means the best bite-worthy bargains, and not just on Tuesdays, but every day of the week. Who doesn’t love that?!

So, if you love getting more bang for your buck while eating like a king, visit The Defiant Duck in Newstead’s Gasworks, home to deals on days ending with a ‘y’!

  • Mondays: $5 steak
  • Tuesdays: $5 burgers & hot dogs
  • Wednesday: $14 hump day rump day
  • Thursday: $10 for half a charcoal chicken
  • Fridays: $29 lunch special – 250g NY strip with chips, salad and house drink
  • Saturdays: $1 tacos + 50c wings
  • Sundays: $15 parmy & chips

 And to qualify for these deals, all you must do is purchase a drink! More details here.

Now, if that doesn’t make your mouth water, then how does the phrase ‘all-you-can-eat’ sound? Just across the road from Defiant Duck in Newstead is Salt Meats Cheese. Every Monday from 5pm, this place dishes out as much pizza as you can eat for just $25 a head. All you need to do is buy a drink.

And while it’s hard to pass up an offer like that, Brewski Bar on Caxton Street is also home to some great dine-in deals!
