For many people who honor the Lenten season, this means six Fridays leading up to Easter of abstaining from all meat. Before you resign yourself to six nights of eggs and pancakes (though delicious in their own right), peanut butter sandwiches, salads and expensive seafood meals, there are plenty of options in Bensalem, PA for affordable Lent-friendly, delicious meals. Here are your top five spots for Friday Lent specials in Bensalem this year:
On the Border: For the first Friday in Lent, February 15, On the Border is offering Fish Taco Friday. Enjoy Dos XX® fish tacos or grilled fish tacos entrees for just $7.99. Visit the On the Border website or Facebook page to look for more offers throughout Lent.
Nifty Fifty’s: At Nifty’s you can make a meal out of their fresh cut fries and gourmet milkshakes alone.
