Breakfast can be a ‘Terribly’ good meal!

Looks like April will be showering us with another good month of cost-conscience dining specials, libations at liquidation prices and even some freebies!

Let’s start with a look at some Terrible’s specials beginning with their giant breakfast deal. The four eggs served with a ten-ounce ham steak, along with hash browns and toast for $3.99, may well be one of the biggest breakfast portions available anywhere in town. It’s a graveyard special only served nightly from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. A steak and eggs special is available too, at the same price and during the same hours. They also serve your choice of a 16 oz. T-bone Steak or Prime Rib complete dinner, (potato and vegetables included,) for just $7.99, and either of these specials are available 24 hours a day. Get in line!

The Hard Rock features a daily happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with two-for-ones on Margaritas and appetizers at the Pink Taco. They also have some excellent choices on “Twilight Specials,” served from 4 to 7 p.m. daily at Mr. Lucky’s 24/7 Coffee Shop. Priced at $5.95, you can choose a complete meal of an 8 oz. Prime Rib, a roasted half chicken, or a chicken pasta dish. All are served with sides and Âí­salads, but ask for dinner rolls. They don’t serve them automatically, but shouldn’t charge any extra for them either. Finally, for late-niters, “Boneyard Specials” are served in Mr. Lucky’s from 1 to 5 a.m. offering a variety of low-priced ($2.50-$4.95,) menu items, Âí­including favorites like a breakfast steak and eggs, Âí­dinner deals, or a heaping helping of strawberry shortcake for dessert.

For buffet ideas this month, try the Silverton on Thursday’s for their “Fresh-Mex Buffet,” for $9.99. Served from 4:30  to 9 p.m. Or visit the Orleans on any Monday evening for the $14.95 seafood buffet. You can include a full bottle of Eagle Canyon wine with your buffet for only $5 more. Your wine choices include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonay, Merlot or White Zinfandel.

Rather just go for a few brews than eats? The Palms currently has Coors and Coors Light at all casino bars for $1 each, or Rattlesnake Ricky’s Lounge at Silverton serves the same beer brands for $1 on Mondays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and includes free live entertainment to boot.

The Fiesta Rancho has another free comedy show featuring stand-up comic, Tim Jones coming up on Friday, April 6. You can take your choice of a 7 or 9 p.m. show in Roxy’s Theater. Pick up tickets at the Amigo slot club booth during the week or prior to the shows. (NOTE: You may need to be a member to get tickets. If you’re not already a member, sign-up first. It’s free to join!)

One final note: The Plaza’s special 50-cent shrimp cocktail we mentioned last week? Fugettaboutit! It was discontinued on Sunday!

Until next week”¦ Eat well, play well, stay well.
