In the coming days, planning to go out for dinner or a lunch with a few people - provided whatever is cheaper smile

Was wondering if anyone know of any specials or a website which should be consulted, like Red Lobster and Bonefish Grill are running specials, you got the idea? laugh

So I am all ears and thanks for the help thumbsup

I'd just check their websites. Although if they're franchises specials might not be listed.

The only chain restaurant I can say is OK and I am sure it depends on each location Outback steak house is good. I eat grass fed beef and the feed lot beef has a sour taste to me.

If a member of Costco or Sam's they sell gift cards to restaraunts usually $80 for $100 so instant 20% savings.

You are a smart man, do you know if they would have for Red Lobster or similar? Preferably a seafood place smile

Never heard of Bonefish Grill. Been to Red Lobster many times, always had good food and service there. If you have Texas Roadhouse around, they have great steaks and reasonable prices. Olive Garden is usually pretty good.

I'd maybe look for a good locally owned place instead of a chain.

Thanks, I prefer local place too. But they can be pricey since they don't run specials, unfortunately frown

It's Valentines week. I wouldn't expect any special deals.

Actually, they do.
The local places have websites too and often offer coupons/deals.
Even without these, they can be a real deal as compared to the generic food restaurant chains.

Look on Groupon for local deals. Lots of restaurants around here have really good specials on Groupon, plus there are usually promo codes that give an additional discount off what's already a good deal.

Another good place to go with a group of people is a Hibachi grill place like Benihana. They usually have great food and you get a little entertainment while your food is prepared right in front of you.

Happy that Texas Roadhouse eventually opened restaurants in Texas wink

Go to a local BBQ place. I'm not into cookie cutter chain restaurants.
