What exactly is it about winter that has us pinching pennies and looking for deals. Is it the aftermath of holiday spending? The increase in heating bills? Or does the presence of cold weather simply incite hibernation, bringing about the inherent desire to hole up at home and save money for sunnier days? Whatever the reason, we join the masses in the need to cut back on spending this time of year. Unfortunately we still harbor our serious love of going out to eat, discovering new restaurants, and paying visits to old favorites. Fortunately for us, and for all our fellow foodies out there, area restaurants are tuned in to their customer base, offering amazing (and we mean amazing) specials this time of year. With less tourists buzzing about during the cold months, it’s only fitting that restaurants speak to the heart of locals by providing irresistible dining deals, while also rewarding the year-round crowd for loyal patronage. It’s a win-win all around!
Rehoboth is no exception, with tons of local restaurants presenting enticing and budget friendly winter menus. And since we love sharing our delicious finds with our readers, we’ve compiled a list of dining deals in Rehoboth. Check them out, visit a few (or all) and give us your feedback! Did we miss any? Any particular favorites? Send a photo of your feast and we’ll share it on our Facebook page. Bon appetite!
