No need to cry over spilled milk (and Tucker Duke's Lunchbox peanut-butter-and-jelly bonbons). The Deerfield restaurant has officially announced it will be reinstating its Tucker Tuesday deal the first Tuesday of every month.
The limited-run $5 burger special began back in December and was supposed to run only through the holidays up until the restaurant's one-year anniversary party February 10.
Now -- thanks to a demanding public outcry -- it's back for good.
"People were so upset that we wouldn't be doing it anymore, we decided to bring it back," said Tucker Duke's Deerfield partner, John Cortes. "Since it's become such a huge event, we decided to make it more special by just doing it just once a month rather than every Tuesday."
The next Tucker Tuesday will kick off starting March 3 and will return the first Tuesday of each month. On that day, you can get a $5 Tucker Duke burger with the purchase of any drink (soda, milk, juice, beer, or wine) from 3 to 10 p.m. On a typical Tucker Tuesday, Cortes says the restaurant sells 80 to 90 Tucker Duke burgers. During its one-year anniversary party earlier this month, it sold more than 120 Tucker Duke's.
Luckily, the deal also coincides with the restaurant's happy hour, so you can still order a happy-hour brew (most of the 23 taps change weekly) and get your $5 burger.
Moving forward, look for more great deals and new offerings, including a new burger of the month and plenty of tap takeovers featuring up-and-coming national and Florida-based breweries.
"We've got a lot planned for a second year," said Cortes. "And it all starts with the return of Tucker Tuesdays."
