My husband loves italian, but we hardly ever go out for it because it’s kind of expensive. But I just stumbled across an email club for Macaroni Grill that mike be useful for our next date night! Joining “The Dish” will get you $5 dollars towards your meal just for signing up. Sounds good to me!

What’s you favorite Italian food? Sound off below!

Remember how I wrote about Amigos restaurant in Waterford Lakes? Well, today there is a Groupon for $20 worth of food for only $10! This deal expires in 2 days, so get on it!

 

Thanks to Whosaidnothinginlifeisfree for the heads up.

 

Craving BBQ? Once I discovered this place, I could not get enough of it.

First is the ambiance, with a rustic log cabin feel on the outside, you feel like you are eating country. But step inside and there are plenty of TV’s playing music videos, sports, or whatever random things happen to play on their own feed. Second is the food, of course! No trip is complete with an appetizer (or even main course) of Pretzel Bones with 3 different dipping sauces. I guarantee that you will have to order more than one because they go so fast. Other menu items include “make your own burgers” and some locations do have happy hour specials.

Lastly, check out their rewards! Join the “Bones Club” and you can start earning points towards free food as well as free appetizer just for joining. It did not take me long to rack up $20. Plus you can usually get $5-$10 off purchase coupons in the Orlando Sentinel Paper once a month. Check in on Foursquare and get a free appetizer of Kettle Chips. Plus check “Retail Me Not” for printable Smokey savings! Still more fun on Facebook and Twitter. So now you really have no excuse.

Near Universal: No location available.

Near UCF/ Waterford Lakes: Smokey Bones located at Waterford Lakes Towncenter.

Near the Airport: No location available.

What do you like to order? What is your favorite Pretzel Bones sauce flavor? (I like the Garlic sauce)

It should come as no surprise to you that there is another post about sandwiches.  My husband requested a trip to our local Pita Pit today, and it did not disappoint. First off, we found coupons in both the Orlando Weekly and Bogo Magazine. You can also access Bogo Magazine online and print coupons directly from there. Once there, sign up for their email club to get special offers.

We had a “buy one pita combo get one  pita free” coupon and each got falafel pitas. You can also choose from your favorite cheese and toppings as well as sauces. Most of the meat selections are turkey or chicken, but they do have other options. The only downside is that the store is a little small and kind of loud, especially when it gets crowded. But the eating is great! And we just found out that they do deliver! Look for more coupons in the bags they put your Pitas in TO GO.  Facebook and Twitter…you guessed it!

Near Disney: No locations available

Near Universal: No locations available

Near UCF/ Waterford Lakes: On the corner of Alafaya and East Colonial or down the street from UCF on University.

Have you visited a Pita Pit recently? What do you order? Post below!

If you have not dropped in to a Sonny’s recently, I strongly encourage you to visit soon! The one by our house recently got refurbished with new decor and a bar area. With the all you can eat deals, salad bar, specially priced lunchtime combos, and the appetizers of corn nuggets and fried okra, you cannot go wrong! The staff at our location is always friendly and helpful, asking us if we need to-go cups and recommending menu items. And it is a lot of food for the budget conscious.

Plus, REWARDS CLUB! Fill out the online form  for the R U SMOKIN’ Club and they will send an you an email good for a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase. Yeehaw! And don’t forget to LIKE them on Facebook as well. Twitter too.
