Day-by-day food & drink deals in Chamonix
Monday – half price deals
Mondays in Chamonix are famous for MBC’s half price chicken wings. Choose the sauce topping of your choice – jalapeno, BBQ and gorgonzola are all popular but the classic choice is sweet chilli sauce – and then all you have to do is decide how many wings you can eat. You can order 6, 12 or 24, and they won’t mind if you club together with your buddies to order multiples of 12 or even 24 to suit your group! Thanks to this great deal, Mondays are always super busy, so make sure you book your table in advance.
The half price deals don’t stop at MBC though. If you can’t get a table there, don’t miss Monkey’s burger bar Monday – 1/2 price on all burgers between 6pm and 8pm. They don’t take bookings for this time slot, so get there early to get your table!
