Happy Birthday Dunlays On The Square

On Thursday, January 6, Dunlays On The Square will be offering all their menu items, and every bar beverage for $6 to celebrate their sixth birthday at the Logan Square location. What does this mean for you? Well it means that you can get those BBQ pork wraps with smoke daddy pulled pork, napa cabbage, carrots, and cilantro with plum sauce, a glass of Prosecco, and the Lyonnaise salad with potato strings, bacon, poached egg with a red wine vinaigrette for $18, which normally would have cost you $27.50. And yes, that is what I will be having. I think it goes without saying that bottles of wine will not be six dollars and menu items that are under six dollars will be their normal price, but in case you didn't know it's true.

Mark it on your calendars and take advantage of this great deal to help Dunlays celebrate their 6th anniversary.
