Get hungry, Fayetteville. A host of local restaurants will offer specials, deals, prix fixe meals, and more as part of Fayetteville Restaurant Week, coming up later this month.

The week-long celebration of local eateries is organized by Experience Fayetteville, and is set for the week of Feb. 25-March 2.

“February tends to be relatively slow for local restaurants,” said Sarah King, the destination marketing organization’s vice president of marketing and communications. “Restaurant Week is Experience Fayetteville’s chance to do what we do best – advertise and promote the restaurants that contribute so much to Fayetteville’s unique character. Last year, we had 54 participating restaurants. Restaurant Week filled their reservation books and brought first-time customers.”  

More than two dozen restaurants have already signed up to offer a special menu, discounts or free items.

For example, Penguin Ed’s will offer half price BBQ nachos at both of their locations, Leverett Lounge is offering KFC bites for $11 and Mel’s Diners for $6 all week, Wood Stone will offer a special Restaurant Week menu all week, and Flying Burrito will offer a bundled meal featuring a chicken burrito, small queso and a drink for $11.

Fayetteville restaurants interested in getting involved can sign up here.
