Don’s Seafood Hut and Oyster Bar in Covington offers a scrumptious deal with ½ off their charbroiled and original "jacked-up" oysters (brimming with garlic butter, bacon and jalepeno) from 5-9 p.m. every Monday for dining in only. Don's sweet deal gets even sweeter as you sip on two frozen margaritas for the price of one.
Slidell's Tacos and Beer is the local hot spot for Taco-Tuesdays, where family and friends enjoy their favorite tacos for just $1 a piece. Whether you're having one or four, it's the ultimate happy hour as the great deal continues with a $2 Miller High Life to swig.
