ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The credit market is not all fixed, and consumer spending is expected to be down this year.

So what can you do to save a little money?

One of Albany's oldest restaurants knows about hard times.

They originally opened during the Great Depression, and on Saturday they offered one special menu item reminiscent of that era.

Even though many American's are struggling things aren't as bad as the were during the early 1900s.

"The time we're in are certainly reminiscent of those days," said Peter Studl.

Studl is the co-owner of Hubbles restaurant.

The restaurant that's called Albany home for more than century is introducing a new item on their menu.

"We're celebrating historic Hubbles, which opened in 1927," said Thomas Hale, Hubbles co-owner.

The new dish is chili, recession chili to be exact.

"We've been playing depression music all day and doing the 29¢ bowl of chili," said Hale.

That's right for a few hours on Saturday they served up chili at a price you no longer see as a special promotion.  Just 29¢.

In the years they've been in the city they have faced hardships along the road, the restaurant recently re-opened the downtown fixture about three weeks ago.

The cheap chili is an addition to the menu that many customers in these days would welcome.

The owners hope to offer the recession chili for 29¢ at least once every quarter.
