Them Eats is Cheap
Three, two, or even one year ago there wouldnt have been anything notable about getting a decent lunch for $3.99. The fact that you could spend your lunch hour at scenic Fort Lauderdale Riverfront, grubbing on a blackened tilapia wrap at the Palm Grill while swilling $9 vodka martinis would be mildly interesting at best. Maybe youd feel a little grateful for the ridonkulously low prices on that rare, tight afternoon just before payday. But probably not. Lunch was not a meaningful expense.
Well, so much for that. For a lot of us, a $3.99 express lunch at Palm Grille has somehow become the highlight of our week. The deal is this: roll up between the hours of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and you can choose from seven menu items on the express menu. Youve gotta buy a drink, too. (A $3 Sam Adams is a good alternative to the $9 tini-trio.) Once you do, the options are impressive: a tri-color Greek pasta salad, a super-packed Southwestern chicken wrap, a chicken breast dinner with all the fixins, and lots more. As befits a place where you can have lunch and catch a beer buzz for less than $8, reservations are neither required nor recommended.
