Updated: Where To Find Daily Half-Priced and Discounted Food Deals In Dallas in 2015.

We've all been there: Payday's still a week away; bills need to be paid; stomachs have to be fed; and, apologies to Maruchan Ramen brand, but boiled noodles and powdered creamy chicken flavoring's not sounding super appealing at the moment.

Well, friend, there exists a little hope after all — and beyond fast food, even. Turns out there's a food deal to be had at a variety of actually passable Dallas restaurants every single glorious day of the week.

And, as we've done before, we're here once again to help you find them.

Below, enjoy this list of Dallas restaurants that are willing to cut you a break. Is it a 100 percent complete list? Probably not. But it's pretty in-depth one just the same — and, trust me, when you need it, that's plenty.

To that end: Go ahead and scan this now, but bookmark it, too. It's something you'll want to reference more than once, we're sure.

How sure? Pretty sure, you guys. Because, much as we wanna help you out from time to time, we have no problem admitting that we mostly make this list for our own reference.

Helping you eat well, too? That's just a bonus. — Pete Freedman
