Local Parkites know that when the snow melts, the restaurant deals snowball. A whole lineup of weekly specials awaits those in the know. These deals gather diners together around one common theme: highly discounted, tasty food and drink. It pays to be in Park City during the off-season, when one can experience world-class food and libations on a local’s budget.
Taco Tuesday at Windy Ridge Café is a favorite Park City summer pastime. The café offers an assortment of $2 tacos, $2 beers, and deals on appetizers, all served on their large, outdoor patio. A tip from the insiders? Never leave Taco Tuesday at Windy Ridge without a slice of fresh key lime pie. (1250 Iron Horse Dr, 435.647.0880, windyridgefoods.com)
