Staff Pick: Wilf’s 

As a lover of pretty much the entire menu of appetizers at Wilf’s, it’s an added bonus to get more for less. More flavour for less money is a fantastic motto to live by and I’m sure all students feel the same way. I cannot sit down at Wilf’s without eating either mac and cheese wedges or spin dip, or both at the same time. While there are many other places around town with great appetizers, it’s super convenient to grab a bite right on campus and satisfy your daily craving for all things Wilf’s for half the price.

Staff Pick: Chainsaw

As a burger connoisseur I’ve tried so many different kinds of burgers that I’ve lost track. But when you’ve had a bit to drink and want to make sure you have something in your stomach, Chainsaw’s $2 burgers can’t be beat. The recipe is simple with minimal toppings, but it does the trick every single time and you can’t beat the price for the kind of burger it is. That being said, if you don’t frequently go to Chainsaw, this would be a good reason to finally see what you’re missing.

Staff Pick: Morty’s 

We are lucky in Waterloo because we have access to the greatest chicken wings in the world. Morty’s wings don’t look natural and I often suspect I’m actually eating turkey wings because there is an absurd amount of food for only six wings. And Thursday night you get the best deal on wings you can find anywhere. If you haven’t checked Morty’s out, take the time this Thursday, as you won’t be disappointed.

Friday

The Pub on King

6 oz. wine for 4 oz. price

Crabby Joe’s

$5 martinis

Wilf’s

Fish and chips for $13.99

Staff Pick: The Pub on King 

As a typical wine-o, I take advantage of any deal on wine I can get in the city. Drinking wine with food is much lighter than drinking beer, so for that reason I generally gravitate towards wine with a meal over any other drink. The Pub on King’s wine deal on Fridays allows wine drinkers like me to enjoy a larger glass of wine for the fraction of the price. Also, as a new venue, The Pub on King is definitely a spot that you should check out in Waterloo.

Saturday

Symposium

Domestic draft pitchers for $13.95

Molly Bloom’s

$3 Jagermeister shots and $4 Jager bombs

Bobby O’Brien’s

10 oz. NY Strip loin for $14

Wilf’s

15 per cent off poutine at Wilf’s

Staff Pick: Bobby O’Brien’s 

Saturday is littered with several drink specials offered by restaurants across the Kitchener-Waterloo region, but Bobby O’Brien’s stands out as offering something more substantial food-wise. With their 10 oz. New York Striploin for the Saturday-only price of $14, goers of the Kitchener pub, which showcases a volleyball court off King Street in the summer for its patrons, is an excellent deal for meat-eaters alike. Whether in the summer sitting on their patio or in the heart of winter inside, this is a great deal that can double as a great date night.

Staff Pick: Morty’s 

Declared as the best burger in Waterloo by The Cord last year, Morty’s only sweetens the deal with their Sunday burger special. For the same price as a generic fast-food combo, you can enjoy a sizeable, juicy burger with a decent portion of fries. But this isn’t just your ordinary burger. Morty’s has their meat game on point and an expansive selection of toppings. This burger transcends all space and time — the perfect end to a weekend.
