Alabama Restaurant Week now underway

More than 250 restaurants will offer lunch and dinner discounts to encourage customers to try new dishes during the second annual Alabama Restaurants Week Aug. 16-25, officials announced today.

The two-course lunch specials will range from $5 to $15 while three-course dinners will cost from $10 to $30, not including tax, tip and drink. Restaurants have the option of offering specials at both lunch and dinner or choosing to offer just lunch or just dinner specials.  

"This is a great time for people to try restaurants in their hometown and other places in the state while saving money," said Alabama Tourism Department Director Lee Sentell.
