Best Deal This Week: 30 Cent Wings & 1/2 Price Appetizers at Joe Sent Me

I live in Waltham, and am fortunate enough to be within walking distance of the culinary meccas that are Moody Street and Main Street (all right - Moody's got Main Street beat, but it has its gems). Being so close to both, I have the option of pretty much any global cuisine I could want, including Indian, Spanish, Guatemalan, Mexican, Thai, and American, to name only a few.

One restaurant I have yet to try in Waltham, however, is Joe Sent Me, which also has another location in Cambridge. The name alone has quite an interesting history (as described on the restaurant's website):

During Prohibition, bars disguised as florists and funeral parlors were referred to as speakeasies. Since these establishments served alcohol illegally, a special knock, or the right name, was required for admittance. “Joe Sent Me” became one of the passwords used by patrons to get into a speakeasy. Eventually, the speakeasy was simply referred to as a “Joe Sent Me."

The clever title of the eatery has intrigued  me to dine there in the near future, but Joe Sent Me also has some decent deals during the week, at both their Waltham and Cambridge locations. For instance, every Monday from 7 to 10 p.m., and every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m., Joe Sent Me shells out 30 cent wings to hungry carnivores. Every Tuesday in Waltham and Wednesday in Cambridge, the restaurant serves up 1/2 price appetizers from 5 to 7 p.m. The times alloted for both discounts are realistic for us working folk, too. Oh, and did I mention they have outdoor seating? Win-win in my book.

Have you been to Joe Sent Me? What's your review?
