Eats:  Fast Food Value Menus and Special Promotions

    Updated January 2015

* Use this as a general guide!  Menu items may be deleted or added and prices and particpation may vary.  And here's our healthy doctor disclaimer:  just cause it's cheap doesn't mean it's healthy!
After years of no value menu, Arby's finally got on the bandwagon and now you'll find items on their "Snack & Save" menu including a Jr Roast Beef, Jr Bacon Cheddar melt sandwich, Jr Ham and Cheddar, curly fries, milkshake, soft drink and more.

Look on your receipt to partake in a survey regarding your visit.  Log onto the receipt web site to take the survey; it took us about 3 minutes to complete.  At the completion, you'll receive a code.  Write this on your original receipt, and on your next visit, redeem the receipt for a FREE regular Roast Beef or Beef 'n' Cheddar sandwich.  Easy!
Not known at this point, please let us know!
Burger King
Value menu includes a double cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, french fries, onion rings,  chicken sandwich and beverages.  Items start out at $1 but prices may vary a little bit depending on franchise/location.  Burger King also offers a breakfast value menu starting at a buck each.
No current value or cheap eat menu.
Carl's Jr.
No current value or cheap eat menu, although those locations that also house a Green Burrito have advertised two tacos for ninety-nine cents.  Carl's Jr. will offer up coupons once a month in the Sunday newspaper, or click on the link to get to their 'Current Offers' page and print a coupon there.
Dairy Queen
Offers a "$5 Buck Lunch" deal and every now and then we'll see certain locations offer a "4 items for $5" menu.  Kids meals are also a good value with an entree, side, drink and free treat offered.
Del Taco
Offers a value menu with the following items:  1/2 pound bean and cheese burrito; hard taco; chicken soft taco; tostada; nachos; cheeseburger; and a bean and cheese cup.
Tuesday Taco Night, get 3 regular tacos (crunchy or soft) for just $1.09 from 3:00pm - 11:00pm.  Upgrade for one dollar more and get double the meat and double the cheese.. 

Thursday Taco Night gets your three grilled chicken tacos for $2.09 from 3:00pm - 11:00pm.

Offers a value menu with the following items:  breakfast Jack (offered all day); 2 regular tacos; jumbo Jack; Jr. bacon cheeseburger; cheeseburger; chicken nuggets; soft drink; and chicken sandwich.
KFC has introduced a "$5 Fill Ups" menu that include main entree plus drink and cookie.
Long John Silvers
No current value or cheap eat menu, though with a basic meal purchase you can add a piece of seafood for a little bit more.
One of the most well-known value menus, most items advertised are a buck and include:  small fries, drink, chicken sandwich, 2 apple pies, double cheeseburger, yogurt, 3 cookies, 2 hashbrowns, sausage biscuit, sundae and a small cone.  Check your closest locations because sometimes we'll see advertisements like "2 for 1 Big Mac Thursdays",  "$1.49 Happy Meal Tuesdays" and/or "Filet-o-Fish Fridays," etc.
Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits
No daily value menu item, but they do run regular promotions for various combos.  Also click on the 'Coupons' tab for additional savings and offers
No dollar menus here, and they've eliminated their $5, $7, $9 subs.  They now offer lower overall menu prices.
Sonic Drive-In
Everyday Deals menu includes:  Jr. breakfast burrito, Jr. Double Cheeseburger, Jr. Deluxe Cheeseburger, Chicken Strip sandwich, Grilled cheese sandwich, small fries/tots and ice cream sundae.  Bonus: "Happy Hour" runs from 2pm-4pm everyday, where all drinks and certain slushes are half price!
Like Quizno's, Subway does have some classic footlongs for $5 and you'll often find special coupons offered by your neighborhood store in one of those monthly coupon newspapers.  Also look for Customer Appreciation $2 6-inch subs and $6 daily meal deals.
Taco Bell
Taco Bell is well-known for offering up a lot of food items for under $1.50.  Remember their .59/.79/.99 promo back in the 90's?  Nothing for .59 cents left, but you'll still find plenty of options under their new "$1 Cravings Menu," including a cheese roll-up, shredded chicken mini quesadilla, nachos, crunchy taco, burritos and caramel apple empanada.
Taco Time
No current value or cheap eat menu.  Every now and then they'll have their crisp bean burritos for $.99.
Their Super Value Menu is now called the "Right Price Right Size Menu," with options that start out at .99 cents..  Items include chicken wraps, crispy chicken nuggets, value fries, value drink, Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, crispy chicken sandwich and double stack burger.  Other locations may also have value salads, chili, baked potato and (our favorite!) chocolate or vanilla Frostys.
