Best Bargain Dining 2014: $10 Dinners at Me-Oh-My Cafe & Pie Shop, The Freehold Country Pub


$10 dinners at Me-Oh-My Cafe & Pie Shop

Red Hook

Loyal customers and newbies alike are flocking to this homey café — already notable for out-of-this-world desserts — for its super dinner deal. On Thursday through Saturday nights, you can sample the likes of pasta with cremini mushrooms, Madeira, garlic, and asiago cheese — for just $10. Says cafe owner Debra Every, “The $10 meals have been a huge hit, and we’re also expanding the options in our $12 to $18 menu, too.” Those latter choices range from meatloaf to ginger orange stir fry with chicken or tofu, and more. You’ll have plenty of cash left to try some pie. 845-835-8340;

The Freehold Country Pub


Off the beaten path in the hamlet of Freehold, locals know a good deal when they taste one. You’ll see families popping in to this pub for dinner; groups gather to catch a game on TV, munch on a snack, pick from among six draft beers on tap at the sports bar area. Owner Wayne Nelson and his staff offer daily lunch and dinner specials — everything from wraps to steaks. And the price won’t break the bank. Appetizers include eight potato pancakes with apple sauce for $3.99, or opt for a hearty bowl of chili with a roll for $7.99. Another favorite: a nine-inch bar pizza for just $6.99. Theme nights and freebie arcade games, like pool and bowling on Fridays, are an added bonus for a fun, economical evening out. 518-634-7454;
