The Best Dining Deals in Adelaide Happening Right Now

Who said a meal out had to be expensive? These places sure didn't.

Midnight Spaghetti

Thanks to the increasing costs of living, it feels as though we’ve been clutching onto our wallets as of late…but money still seems to be vanishing somehow anyway. And as we watch those precious pennies dwindle down the drain, eating out becomes unimaginable, especially when there are so many other expenses to prioritise.

Adelaide restaurants have heard your cries for a cheap feed loud and clear, and they’ve delivered some incredible deals that, to be honest, may even be cheaper than preparing a meal at home. So, if you’re wanting to enjoy a meal out but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, this is the guide for you. Here are some of the best dining deals in Adelaide that are happening right now, including a $15 steak, which is simply unheard of in this economy.

Seamore's Henley Beach

$15 Date Night at Seamore’s Henley Beach

Who doesn’t love a good date night, especially when it’s affordable? Seamore’s Henley Beach is spicing up hump day (wink wink) with their Wednesday date night special. You’ll find select pizzas, pasta, and their chicken schnitzel up for grabs for only $15, giving you and your date an absolute steal to fuel up right before you steal the night away. Choose from pumpkin, mushroom alla panna or creamy rosé pasta, margherita or veggie pizza, or a classic chicken schnitty. They all sound so delicious, we’ll be back every week!

Smiley's Tuckshop

Meal Combos from Smiley’s Tuckshop

Want a bite to eat as you walk around the Adelaide Central Market? Smiley’s Tuckshop has you covered with an array of meal deals. Snag a classic pie or pasty with a can of soft drink for only $8, a ham and cheese toastie with your morning coffee for $10, or a bacon and egg roll and coffee for merely $15. That’s what we call a breakfast of champions.

Bar Riot

$20 Ribs at Bar Riot

Yes, you read that correctly. Bar Riot puts on an incredible dining deal in Adelaide every Tuesday night. For just $20, you can get half a kilo of delicious ribs all to yourself, with five sauce options to choose from that’ll pair perfectly alongside it. We’re not drooling, you are!

Ban Ban

$40 Feed Me Menu at Ban Ban

So hungry you could eat a horse, but you’re on a bit of a budget? Ask the team at Ban Ban to feed you, and they’ll exceed all expectations. Their “Feed Me” menu is only $40 per person, but it comes with Korean food galore! Expect chicken, kimchi ad rice dishes that while boasting traditional Korean flavours, have an added western touch that fuses both cultures together. It’s the perfect cure for hangriness!

The Cumberland Arms Hotel

Known and loved by Adelaidians as ‘The Cumby’, The Cumberland Arms Hotel is a local favourite – and once you lay eyes on their weekly specials, it’s not hard to see why.

Monday: $15 fish and chips when you purchase a drink.

Tuesday: $15 parmys when you purchase a drink.
