Pinon Grill in Boca Raton holds its happy hour strictly in the bar area. However, the bar does offer $6 sliders for those people who stop for a drink and a bite on their homebound commute. The grill’s signature cocktails, such as the classic Beefeater gin martini, cost $5 from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. In fact, everything on the happy-hour drink menu costs $5, including house wines, two kinds of martinis, a margarita and house liquors straight up. Mixers cost a dollar more. The selection of sliders includes Kobe beef, ahi tuna and crab cake. Each order brings two sliders and a side of shoestring fries, which, served with one drink, make for a late lunch of about $11.

Recommended drink: Golden Pinon Margarita, made with Sauza Gold Tequila and served on the rocks
