Roadfood Restaurants using Groupon Sat, 03/2/13 6:05 AM (permalink)
I was surprised today to find that the Groupon of the day in Kansas City was for Niece's. It is the only advertising that I have ever seen them do. I thought that they were doing well enough that they didn't have to resort to Groupon. Do you know of any other Roadfood Restaurants that have used Groupon in the past?

P.S. If you want to buy one you need to use it within 120 days of purchase.

      Groupon & LivingSocial both have very good deals in NYC from time to time...

          One thing I thought was strange was a Groupon for a modest Latin restaurant in West Palm Beach. This place opens at 7am for breakfast and serves all day. The Groupon said reservations were required but I don't think they even take reservations. It made me think they might turn down my coupon if I walked in without a call first. This could be a way to deal with too many coupons at the same time.

              I just saw this, sorry. When it's busy, the staff has to stop to make calculations on the adding machine, as they are unable to do it in their head. With living Social, they have to make a phone call, then more calculations, simply not worth it!
