Restaurants aim to draw diners this tax season, whether customers are celebrating a big refund or drowning their sorrows after forking over funds to Uncle Sam. From larger chains to a few local options, here are some creative Tax Day offerings.
After turning in their 1040s, diners can head to Boston Market to take advantage of a special deal. On April 18 only, the roasted-chicken restaurant will offer up half-chicken meals—which come with two sides, cornbread, a regular fountain drink and a cookie—for $10.40.
Sonny’s is offering its own version of a tax break by doling out discounted St. Louis-style ribs on Tax Day. At participating locations, dine-in and takeout customers can enjoy dinner portions of either Sweet & Smokey or Sonny’s House Dry-Rubbed Ribs with two sides and bread for half price.
The spy-themed bar and restaurant’s recently opened second location will offer an Undercover Happy Hour on April 18 for “spies who have grown weary from all the number crunching.” Operatives can enjoy drink specials like $4 domestic beers and $5 well drinks while nibbling on SafeHouse’s cheese curds, wings and nachos, all for $6 each.
This classic French bistro in Chicago will celebrate tax season on April 18 by offering desserts for just $4.18 each, with the purchase of an entree. Diners can choose from popular sweets such as baked Alaska, chocolate profiteroles topped with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch caramel, or chocolate hazelnut bars.
Great American Cookies
Participating Great American Cookies locations are sweetening tax season with free Birthday Cake cookies for customers. This is the fifth year Great American Cookies have given away their freshly baked cookies on Tax Day, making it an annual treat consumers can anticipate each April.
Andre’s Bistro & Bar and Alize
Customers can toast the IRS at Andre’s Bistro & Bar in Las Vegas, as well as Alize at the top of Palms Casino Resort, the Saturday before taxes are due. Guests who check in at either restaurant on social media can enjoy an Income Tax Cocktail for only $4.15.
