Cheap eats are a staple of anyone trying to survive the daily grind in Los Angeles. Thankfully, there are weekly specials almost everywhere you go. While Tuesday has held the title for best cheap grub of the week with tacos and dollar dogs, another night is moving in and taking over: Monday. That’s right, Monday night is the new Tuesday when it comes to eating on a budget in Los Angeles. Be sure to check out these specials and make Monday night something to look forward to.

Los Angeles, CA 90036
Happy Hour at Rascal is already pretty stellar with $6 eats and drinks of your choosing. Sink your teeth into a thick fried chicken sandwich with all the trimmings, Italian sausage or a juicy burger (to name a few) and knock it back with a Moscow Mule, a margarita or a pilsner for $12 is a great deal. What makes Monday night at Rascals so great is that Happy Hour is all night long. With deals like this, Mondays may no longer be considered the worst day of the week.

Located in downtown Koreatown, the Escondite is another awesome place that offers Happy Hour all night long on a Monday. While that may be as far as the discounts go, Monday nights there are still pretty special. Only on Mondays can you get the Nacho Man Randy SanchezBurger. This culinary monstrosity is an all beef patty stuffed with slim jim bites and topped with nacho cheese, fresh jalapeños and Doritos. As incredible as this sounds, your arteries may thank The Escondite for making this burger available only once a week.
17000 Ventura Blvd.
Encino, CA 91316
Thanks to The Stand in Encino, you are ensured a quality dog for a buck every Monday night from 5-9 p.m. Choose between all beef or turkey dogs and load it up with anything from the “included” condiment section like jalapeños, onions, siracha, chimichurri and diced tomatoes. Plus all the ketchup and mustard you want.
Candela Taco Bar & Lounge
831 S. La Brea Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
As with the dollar dogs, no weekly specials list would be complete without a cheap taco deal. Candela Taco Bar & Lounge offers a 2 for 1 special on their fish tacos. Buy one Pescato Frito (Baja style fried fish) and get one free. The same goes for their Taco Gobernador (garlic shrimp, Monterey Jack cheese and onion). As if this deal couldn’t get any sweeter, it’s 2 for 1 all day and there are $4 margaritas.
