Lonestar (where we live) offers a "Kids Eat Free" on Tuesday night. You can get up to two free kids meals with one adult entree purchase. I decided that would save us a bundle of change. Then I sign up with every restaurant club known to man so I can get coupons and free items at my birthday time and anniversary time. I just happened to have a coupon from Lonestar offering me a free appetizer. Cha-Ching!
We started the night off with a FREE appetizer of Cheese Fries (savings of $7.99) - YUMMY! I ordered a fabulous chicken sandwich for $7.99. It came with a side of my choice. Being I had fries already, I chose to have a house salad. The kids ordered a chicken tenders dinner (savings of $4.99) and a steak medallion dinner (savings of $6.99). We all ate and ate and ate until we were so full we rolled out of there.
When our waiter brought the bill, I was astounded at the price I saw! I only owed $8.67!!!!! WHAT?!?!?! We had saved almost $20.00!! Our sweet waiter did not charge us for any of our drinks either. I only paid for my meal (the cheapest on the menu byt he way). I was so excited to walk out of there feeding all three of us for under $10. I did leave him a hefty tip!
I look forward to finding more great deals like this! What are some of your ideas on saving in restaurants? Do you have a story to share?
