If you’re under the age of 20, chances are you won’t remember a time when you could grab a meal for just $2. Sure, you can still get food for $2 at certain places, but definitely not a full meal - especially not at restaurants.

But if you’re on a mission to save up for your next big holiday and still want to treat yourself, we’ve got news for you - just for the month of November, you can enjoy main courses, and even a wagyu beef buffet for just $2! 

Empty out your coin banks and make a beeline to these restaurants with unbelievable $2 deals:


1. Marriott Cafe - $2 buffet (U.P. $59-$80)
