A $6.95 steak dinner

Saturday's deal at Andy's Diner.

A $6.95 steak dinner

Greek immigrant Andy Kamaratos, who opened his first diner in 1976, will roll back the prices on 14-ounce Certified Angus New York strips and ribeye steaks at his Andy’s Diner locations (Trevose, Conshohocken, and Springfield, Delaware County) on Saturday, June 30.

How about a steak dinner for $6.95? The Bureau of Labor Statistics calculator says $6.95 in '76 has about $28 of buying power today - which means that Kamaratos' regular price of $19.95 for the same chow is a relative bargain. 

The beef is accompanied by soup, salad bar, bread and a baked potato or side of vegetables.
