One of the perks of living in or near Boston are the numerous dining options around every corner. Despite a packed schedule of work, commuting, social engagements, and errands, finding good food in a pinch is easy. But what about quality options that fit into your budget? Where do you find the dining out deals and best value of your favorite dishes in Boston?

Greater Boston restaurants and bars offer some great deals to help you save money. One example is Grendel’s Den in Cambridge, where you can purchase anything off the food menu at half price with a $4 drink order. The deal starts at 5 p.m. and goes until 7:30 p.m. For an affordable outing, there are a host of $1 oyster happy hour deals in the Boston area like Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar in South Boston and Charlie’s Kitchen in Cambridge. Another such score can be found at Banyan Bar & Refuge where you can get 10 dumplings, five spring rolls, or two scallion pancakes for $5 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. We suspect that Bostonians may also have a few more suggestions on where to find the best value for a quality meal in the city.
