Deal of the Day: $1 Balls on Monday at Fork & Balls

To start the week off with a bang (or a ball), head to Fork & Balls in Fort Lauderdale. Every week, the restaurant offers its Meatball Monday Madness promotion, where you can get $1 meatballs all day — and night. 

Named as one of the “Top Ten Hottest Restaurants In Miami Right Now” by Zagat — and one of the 10 best new restaurants in Fort Lauderdale by New Times — Fork & Balls has redefined the concept of the meatball by putting an innovative spin on this signature comfort food. 

The Restaurant People — creators of South Florida hotspots like YOLO and O Lounge, S3, Tarpon Bend, and Vibe Las Olas — opened the casual eatery in 2014. Under the culinary direction of the group's executive chef and co-founder, Peter Boulukos, the Fork & Balls’ dining concept features a blend of regular menu staples and daily features, all centered around the meatball. The restaurant also offers a variety of daily market salads and other comfort food selections, along with handcrafted cocktails, a wide rotating selection of craft beer and more than 20 wines on tap

To get the $1 deal, patrons must order from the “Just Balls” menu, with a minimum order of four balls per person, and the purchase of a beverage. The deal comes with a choice of sauce and, as part of the special, half-off wine on tap, in a carafe, or by the bottle.

Fork & Balls is located at 1301 E. Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-771-2257, or visit
