Sticking to a tight budget can be a challenge when it comes to dining out. On this week’s FOX 17 Thrifty Thursday special, we’re featuring  a restaurant where you can get a great deal on vegetarian-friendly cuisine every Monday, as well as drink specials throughout the rest of the week.

Derby Station is located in East Grand Rapids in Gaslight Village at 2237 Wealthy St. SE. You can’t miss the gorgeous wood and brick exterior. Calling themselves the local pub of East Grand Rapids, Derby Station’s menu features diverse cuisine ranging from Fish-n–Chips to Gaslight Village Jambalaya.
