Zio's has all you can eat spaghetti for 1.99 on Tuesday nights in Oct.

For $1.99 (plus sales tax and possible tip?) I can eat all I can eat of pasta a few times. 1lb dry pasta $1 and one can of pasta sauce 79¢ and there is no way I'm eating all of that. Of course, I don't care much for spaghetti. I'd rather add another $3.25 to the mix to add 10oz of italian sausage and a half pound of cheese to the mix and make a pasta bake (dinner for tonight btw). Get approx 8 meals for $5.25.
