Local eateries will be throwing back prices so far this week it'll make you want to slap your grandma.

Well, not really, but some good eats around town will be about as cheap as they were when your grandma was your age.

Mellow Mushroom and McDonald's menus will boast dramatically reduced prices this Monday and Wednesday, respectively.

In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Mellow Mushroom will revive its original menu prices from 1974 as a part of the ultimate "Way Back Wednesday." Locations nationwide will offer small cheese pizzas for $2.50, Cokes for 30 cents and select beers for 75 cents.

In addition to the one-day special, Mellow Mushroom is also holding a month-long contest with a trip to Amsterdam for two as the grand prize. To enter, customers must post a photo either on Instagram or www.40yearsbaked.com standing in front of a backdrop of the first Mellow Mushroom location, which will be on display at all locations.

Similarly, the newly renovated McDonald's near UCF will precede its grand-opening celebrations with a McRollback Knight Monday from midnight to 5 a.m.

Attendees can enjoy $1 Big Macs, $1 Quarter Cheese Burgers, 75-cent six-piece McNuggets, 50-cent small French fries, 25-cent hash browns, $1 sausage, egg and cheese biscuits, $1 bacon egg and cheese biscuits and 50-cent medium soft drinks and medium coffees. The first 100 customers will also receive a free Big Mac every week for one year.
