For those of you always on the hunt for a great dining deal, Houston's longtime po' boy favorite Antone's Famous Po' Boys has one coming up that's hard to beat. From September 11 through September 17, 1 to 3 p.m. only, customers can score 55-cent Original po' boys, along with $1.55 Super Original, turkey or tuna po' boys, and $5.55 deli and hot sandwiches (excluding all fried po boys, sorry y'all).  It's all in honor of the restaurant's 55th anniversary, and customers will also receive a coupon for 19.62 percent off their next meal, valid through December 31, in honor of the shop's first year of business, 1962.

That's when  Jalal Antone first opened Antone's Import Co., a market catering to the city's Syrian and Lebanese communities, but eventually expanding into a much-loved spot for Houston-style po’ boys and sandwiches served on bread from Montrose's Royal Bakery and Slow Dough Bread Co. Antone's also serves up gumbo, salads and more great lunch fare.

The 55-cent deal (limit four per customer, by the way) will be offered at the following locations:
4520 San Felipe
2724 W TC Jester
Antone’s grab-and-go kiosks (weekday only), 3 Greenway Plaza, Suite C-118
Downtown Tunnels kiosk, 811 Louisiana, Suite m130a
