  Mattito's
Multiple locations
What you can eat: Free appetizer buffet with alcohol purchase
When: 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday

Saintsbury Tavern, 6800 Windhaven Pkwy., The Colony

What you can eat: A free taco bar with drink purchase
When: 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays
Forget Taco Tuesday, these pubs go all-in on Thursdays. This make-your-own taco bar is nothing to sneeze at. You can even take your fur baby along to Saintsbury — no tacos for Toto, though.
Blue Mesa
Multiple locations
What you can eat: Free quesadillas
When: 4 to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday
Sidle up to the stone bar during happy hour, order up a cheap blue margarita and get free quesadillas. That was easy. Make sure to load on up on their delicious tortilla and sweet potato chips.

Bread Winners
Multiple locations
What you can eat: Free dessert with entree purchase
When: Sundays
This Dallas mainstay offers a little booze-induced way to keep away the Sunday scaries and even offers diners a treat to end their visit. Choose any item from the dessert menu or bakery counter to enjoy with a White Russian after dinner.
