Nachos are pretty much always a good deal — even at around $30 — since you usually need about three people to finish a platter. But they’re even better when they’re a really good deal. Here’s where to get nachos for less every day of the week. Plus, most of these spots also offer deals on cocktails and beer at the same time. 


Blanco Cantina

Deal: Half-price nachos ($7.50 to $15.50)

When to get the deal: Every day from 3 to 5 p.m. 

During the daily “Halfy Hour” at Blanco Cantina, you can get half-price nachos from 3 to 5 p.m. Build your own or get the tuna poke nachos (guac included). There's also half-price tequila and margaritas and beer are $6.
