“Pork Chop Friday” is already a tradition for many fans of Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille. That’s the day when the Houston-grown chain with seven locations in town (and these days, a few more in other Texas cities and states) sells a thick, meaty chop with whipped potatoes and applesauce for $14.95 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (An even heftier, seven-bone cut is available for dinner.) In what’s become a nearly annual tradition, for only one day the first 100 people in line at each Perry’s Steakhouse location can land the pork chop lunch for a mere 79 cents (plus tax and gratuity, of course). This year, that day is Friday, May 17.

The event is called “Flashback Friday” in honor of the 1979 opening of the original Perry & Sons Market & Grille. This year, 2019, is also the 40th anniversary of the company. Perry’s Steakhouse didn’t offer the bargain last year but in 2017, diners eager to take advantage of the deal gathered well ahead of the 11 a.m. opening time. The company also isn’t accepting lunchtime reservations until 11:15 a.m. that day — and by then, the special may already be gone. Customers must be 21 or older to take advantage of the special and it’s for dine-in only.

Also in honor of the 40th anniversary, Perry’s is giving away a year of Pork Chop Friday lunches to three winners. One was picked for the entry period that ran through March; the second chance to win runs through July and there will be one more after that. Get details on how to enter in our recent article.
