Most restaurants here will have a special section of the menu featuring a deal typically for two people. I like to browse that section first before browsing the original menu because you can get sometimes get your money’s worth!
For instances, this restaurant Chili’s, you can choose an appetizer and then two full size entrees for only $22 dollars plus tax – in the past it was 2 for $20 but it has increased by 2 bucks since.
Appetizer to Share
- Half Texas Cheese Fries, the photo is with chili. Essentially french fries topped with cheese, jalapeños and chili. Garnished with green onions.
- What my boyfriend would order – Half Rack of Baby Back Ribs with your choice of side. He had a side of mac n’ cheese.
- What I would typically order – Classic Bacon Burger and instead of fries since we had fries as an appetizer, I had loaded mash potatoes topped with bacon bits and shredded cheese
If you were to order this entire meal seperately, the appetizer would be$4.89, half rack of ribs would be $11.39, bacon burger would be $9.99. Essentially the appetizer is “like” free. And these food selects are what we typically would have ordered anyway so it is a win, win situation for us!
We do not typically eat at Chili’s, but occasionally when there is a good deal we may consider it. Simply by being a Rewards member of Chili’s which is completely free to sign up, you will be emailed on going promotions for instance: $10 off your purchase of $30 or more, free dessert of your choice with no purchase required, free appetizer for dine in, free kids meal, and etc. Plus for every purchase you make, you will accumulate points to redeem for free food!
