Hours: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Deal: $1 Seitan Tacos
We’d be wrong not to give a vegan option for Taco Tuesday. Meals will be prepared with seitan, which is a high-protein, wheat, and gluten-based food. The best part of these vegan tacos – they’re only $1 on Tuesdays. If you’re not in the mood for tacos, there’s also an extensive 12-option vegetarian menu to choose from.
