The restaurant joins Wendy’s, McDonald’s and Taco Bell in slinging dollar menu deals
Talk about more bang for your buck.
Applebee’s announced it’s selling margaritas for just a dollar for the entire month of October.
The chain is slinging the “dollaritas” to say thanks to guests as part of the restaurant’s Neighborhood Appreciation Month. The boozy offer goes beyond happy hour – guests can order the tequila-filled sip any time as long as they “drink responsibly,” the company says.
Cheap alcohol could be a way to get more millennials in the door. Last month, Applebee’s announced it would close up to 130 restaurants due to declining sales. The chain recently rebranded to appeal to a more youthful crowd with items like a shrimp dish with sriracha sauce, but sales were still down by 6% in 2017, according to the company.

Other chains have cut back on their ultra cheap menu options over the years. McDonald’s replaced its iconic Dollar Menu with the Dollar Menu and More in 2013 because it was a challenge for locations to sell food for so little and still profit. Recently, the company announced it would try to bring back its cheaper items at a $1 to $3 price point, according to Fast Company.
