The Ultimate Guide to Mid-Week Food & Drink Deals in Manchester

The weekend is over, which means back to work. Five whole days of torture; literally counting down the minutes till you get wasted again and spend two whole days with your head in the toilet. Ahh, that’s the dream.

But seriously, the working week doesn’t have to be a marathon. It could be more like a rainy mountain hike in the middle of nowhere if you break it up with some food and fun. Sold. So, for the best tasty mid-week treats in Manchester, read on!

Monday

Sakana
Half Price Sushi & Sashimi
If you’re a lover Sushi (who isn’t?), you’ll know that every mouthful of fishy goodness is better than the last. Whilst a Tesco platter and a packet of Walkers might suffice for a busy lunchtime, I’m sure you’ll agree that it never truly fills that sushi-shaped void in our hearts and bellies. Sakana on Peter Street on the other hand, absolutely does. Every single Monday, Manchester’s self-declared sushi Shangri-La, offers 50% off all its expertly rolled sushi rolls and sashimi.

El Capo
Monday Night Steak Out
Nothing screams #MeatFreeMonday more than a huge hulking piece of steak, and at El Capo, Mondays will see the likes of an Argentinian sharing steak for two, two sides and a bottle of wine all for £12.50 each. I’d have to recommend the chorizo mac and cheese as one of your sides. Easy, cheesy, meaty bliss.

Black Dog Ballroom
50% Off Food
Monday’s are pretty depressing, and that is a fact. I know you’ll be tempted to polish off a couple bottles of wine whilst trying to remember the weekend’s antics, crying Bridget Jones-style, but that isn’t the way to relieve your Monday blues – I speak from experience. Instead of weeping into a sad takeaway – pop down to the Black Dog and enjoy 50% off all food. From classic Manchester burgers to artisan Pizzas, Black Dog is guaranteed to satisfy your taste buds.

Trof
50% Off Food
Absolute Northern Quarter legends Trof offer a lovely bit of deal action on a Monday – 50% off all food all day long. For tables for 6 or less you can enjoy twice as many of their brilliant dishes all while tucking into an extensive range of ales and beers and wines and listening to some top tunes. Their burgers are always a pleasure so tuck into one of them, but I should also suggest you try their Fish and Chips – the chipshop curry mayo they shove on the side is amazing.

Dive NQ
55% Off All Food
You need to sign up and get a Dive NQ Card to get this deal but it’s free and easy to do so I’ll let them off. Not ones to get beaten by their fellow NQ peers, Dive offer a slightly more impressive 55% off food every Monday so you can save yourself even more pennies during the week. Their menu is fool proof and perfect for getting you nice and full and merry. There’s sliders, tacos, big juicy burgers, nachos, wings and everything else in between. I suggest their Maple & Bacon wings – 24 of them should be enough.

Rosylee
50% Off Food
Every Monday, Rosy’s offers 50% off food from its A La Carte menu, all day long, when you book a table in advance. All you need to do is bring a pal and buy a drink to make the deal valid. Pizzas for £4.50 and £9 Sirloin steaks? Yep, don’t mind if I do!

Tariff & Dale
50% Off Food
Go to T+D on a Monday night at 5pm and indulge in all the food you want, but for half the price. Never again will you have to choose between a Lamb Keema Sausage Roll, Crispy Pork Belly or Margherita pizza. For once you can be a greedy pig and not feel a shred of guilt for it. Because at the end of the day, it’ll cost you next to nothing. But don’t blame us for your ballooning waistline…

Tuesday

Black Dog Ballroom
2-4-1 Pizzas
In both their Northern Quarter and Wakefield Street branches, BDBR offer a Buy One, Get One Free deal on all their standard pizzas every single Tuesday.

El Capo
£1 Tacos
One of my favourite food deals in Manchester by far, is El Capo’s revolutionary £1 Tuesday Tacos. You heard me correctly ladies and gentlemen- crispy, fishy, spicy and crazy delicious tacos for a quid. Whether you’re looking for a light snack with a couple of drinks or want to take inspiration from me and sink 10+ in one sitting, this deal can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be. That’s the beauty of it. So, head to Northern Quarter this Tuesday from 4pm onwards and choose from a selection of mouth-watering flavours. You will not regret it- take it from me!

Common
BOGOF Burgers
Again, this is another deal where you have to fork over your email address but once you’ve got the correct Spam filters in place – you won’t even notice. What you will notice is the brilliant Common BOGOF Burgers every Tuesday meaning you can tuck into 2 Maple Bacon Burgers for the price of one. Oh, don’t forget their Korean Fried Chicken burger either – that’s really special, as are their Vegan options.

Wednesday

Bunny Jackson’s
10p Chicken Wings
There’s a battle of the wings every week in Manchester with people offering all kinds of juicy chicken appendages for an array of crazy prices. Most impressive must be Bunny Jackson’s on First Street who offer wings every Wednesday for only 10p each! What’s the catch? Well you need to buy a drink to get the offer but that’s it and anyone who doesn’t drink while eating 25 chicken wings will probably die. Available all day until they run out.

Every Wednesday between 12-9pm, Favelas offers 50% off absolutely everything- meaning you can enjoy a feast of burritos, BBQ ribs and tasty one-pot stews for absolutely nothing!

For £10 you can get yourself as many wings as you can muster without either passing out or dying. It’s available from 12pm until 11pm so you can get involved for lunch, dinner, supper or as a late snack after too many cocktails.

Dogs ‘n’ Dough
Half Price Hot Dogs
Pop into Dogs ‘n’ Dough on a Wednesday and you’ll be able to bag yourself one of their fantastically impressive Hot Dogs for half the usual price. These dogs aren’t like the shitty ones you used to get as a kid – these are big juicy beef frankfurters, tucked into a soft and sweet brioche bun and topped with all manner of juicy, meaty, sticky, cheesy toppings. The Farmageddon is a classic coming topped with pulled beef, pulled pork, crispy bacon, fried chicken and chilli cheese and at only £5.50 – you’ll be laughing.

El Capo
50p Chicken Wings
If you like it, then you should have put a wing on it. Yup, that’s right, Wednesdays are all about wings and to celebrate this in style, El Capo sells them for 50p each. Enjoy chunky buffalo cut chicken wings with a wide range of sauces such as Green Tomatillo, Smoked Chipotle, Peach Jalapeño and Diablo which comes with a hefty four chilli rating.

Thursday

Manchester Smokehouse & Cellar
50% Off Burgers
Every burger at the Smokehouse & Cellar is cooked on an Argentinian grill above a wood and charcoal fire, meaning every strip of meat is infused it that classic BBQ taste. Salivating yet? Well, get yourself to MS&C on a Thursday and enjoy top-notch burgers at half the price. Just make sure to keep every Thursday free for the foreseeable future. You’ll be going back – trust me.

Dogs ‘n’ Dough
Half Price Pizzas
Wednesday is the day that they offer dogs for half price, so it’s only logical that Thursday follows the same pattern and Dogs ‘n’ Dough offer pizzas for half price instead. As you’d expect there’s plenty to choose from, mostly all featuring some eccentric toppings but you can’t go wrong with their Mac & Cheese pizza for pure carb joy. Add some Bacon and lashings of BBQ sauce and your wallet will only be £5.25 lighter while you will be much, much fuller.

Bunny Jackson’s
£1.50 Sliders
Hot off the press this – Bunny Jackson’s have introduced Jon Bon Burger Thursday where you can pick yourself up one of their brilliant slider burgers for only £1.50 or 6 for £7.50. Sliders might be small burgers but don’t let that think you’re going to be eating something Tinkerbell would chew – these beauties come topped with a variety of toppings and flavours – including a lovely Cajun Salmon number. On top of this you can get shots of Fireball for only £2 – cheers Mr Jackson.

Friday

Dogs ‘n’ Dough

Get that Friday feeling not by eating a Crunchie but by eating 50% cheaper food at Dogs n Dough every week. Wednesday they have cheap dogs, Thursday cheap pizzas and so it’s time on Friday to tuck into half price everything – including their brilliant selection of sides and loaded fries. Nachos, Jalapeno Poppers, Dough Balls and Mac Bites are all here – as are the very impressive Kiev Fries which come topped with cheese and garlic butter and taste divine.
