Restaurant Coupons for the Weekend

My husband and I plan a Friday date night dinner out every week and even though we’re usually home pretty early and then right back to work, it is so nice to have some quiet time together without the kids underfoot and dessert on a dish I don’t have to wash!  We usually check out the available coupons for our favorite local restaurants before deciding where we want to eat so we can save a few bucks, because we work hard to save where we can so we can spend where we want.  Check out our Restaurant Coupon Database here so you can find the best deals near you!
