    Affordable Restaurant Meals Occasionally

    If you live near an Uno, join the Insiders Club. They change the menu every so many months and you'll get a BOGO Insider's Club coupon. You will get a goodie bag if you eat during certain days and hours plus samples of the new menu besides the coupon that you can download.

    It's a nice way to go out to eat for two people and not spend a young fortune.

    The new menu features Cajun type food.

    Hi Virginia

     Have you ever heard of  http://www.restaurant.com   You can sign-up for free and they will

    send you emails whenever they have discount on certificates on restaurants in your local  area. you can buy  $25 certificates for as low as $2.

    My wife and I went to a Sea Food Restaurant in New York and the bill was $44. I ended up paying $19 by using a $25 certificate that I paid $2 for.

    I hope you enjoy it and past it on.

     i have used some of their certificates.  really a good deal!  also check out groupon.com and buywithme.com.  these may be primarily in larger metropolitan areas.  these buy a voucher deals seem to be multiplying rapidly, at least in the boston area.

    Dear All, What I do when I can't otehrwise relieve teh craving for restaurant food is to order take-out judiciosly. I have found that 2 Chinese entrees, suchh as fried rice & chicken with snow peas & water chestnuts can be stretched out for 5 meals altogether (5 servings for me & a doggie who likes to share). That costs me $22 including a 20% (? -- teh bill is $18.85) tip. If you have the wherewithal to pick up the food at the restaurant, you can save the tip even! Of course, you can only get these kinds of prices from places that only acccept cash. But this is exensive San Francisco, & you might be able to beat these prices where you live!

    I clip restaurant coupons out of the newspaper. I also signed up on different restaurant websites.

    The Entertainment Book is great also.

    Deb-If you shred lettuce and mix it with the fried rice, it doesn't alter the taste substantially, but it really cuts the calories and stretches the rice!

    A terrific tip, dear Little Pitcher! Unfortunately, I never buy lettuce because it goes bad long before I can use it up AND I can't use a grater due to my tremor. That's nto to dimiinish teh value of your idea! Thanks frr thinking of me so hard! Love in Him, Deborah & Heart
