Money Talks News: 7 Ways to Radically Reduce Your Restaurant Bill

1. Use Coupons and Promotions

Sign up for daily deals sites like Groupon and LivingSocial – where you can find discounts for 50 to 90 percent off. You can score bargains like a Hibachi dinner for two at Yokohama Japanese Restaurant in Maple Shade, N.J., for $26 rather than $54. It’s a great way to try out a new restaurant on the cheap.

Also take advantage of restaurant promotions. Applebees consistently offers a 2 for $20 deal, which includes two meals (which you can select from a list of entrees) and an appetizer. Olive Garden is popular for its limited-time offers, which include the Never Ending Pasta Bowl and Unlimited Soup, Salad and Breadsticks. Some restaurants, like Maggiano’s Little Italy, are now offering a “Dinner Today & Dinner Tomorrow” deal, which allows you to enjoy a meal at the restaurant and take another meal home.

If you live near a city, take advantage of Restaurant Week, when many restaurants offer delectable deals on otherwise expensive dining experiences.
