Hey Foodbme - Groupon has Fuego Bistro $10 for a $30 Groupon for the next couple days.  I previously ate there and highly recommend the restaurant.  I bought 2 more today.  I think we had the following on our visit:
 
Our Signature Pernil Asado: slow roasted suceulent pork served with an orange habanero mojo and local corn tortillas $19
Cola and Pineapple Soy Braised Angus Short Rib Roast: served with a cripotle mango au jus. $21
 
Also, an Eating on the Cheap tip for everyone ... hang on to those fast food beverage cups. Chances are they will not catch you when you try to reuse them on a later visit to the restaurant.

    Another good strategy for you Eating on the Cheapsters is found at restaurants with all you can eat promotions along with regular menus.  Have one in the group order the AYCE and the rest single portions at a lower price.  Eat as much as possible from the AYCE person, and pile up those other plates, too.  Ask for carryout boxes for the regular portions (usually not allowed for the AYCE diner) and take home lunch for dozens the next day.

      If I get an unsolicited coupon handed to me or in the mail to a restaurant I would normally eat at or have a desire to try, I'll use it. I will not seek out coupons, or pay for such opportunity, sign up for or join anything.

        Exactly.  Why have a Spam button if it doesn't work?


        All this time I was thinking that  if  I hit the spam buttom, somebody would send me a can of spam...
         
        Welcome ToYou...eating on a budget IS relevent...one of my favorite steakhouses has a "two for $25" coupon in our local advertiser...and this place is like stepping back in a time machine...I think I've had the same waitress for the last 40 years I've been going there...

              I was suspicious of the email and deleted it as junk and put it on my blocked list!

                LivingSocial has a 50% voucher for Al's #1 Beef, $20 for $10.  It looks like Al is becoming more of a chain with multiple locations and this voucher is only good for the Chicago Heights area.  But since they are listed on Roadfood, I decided to bring this to your attention.  Still if you want your fix for an Italian beef sandwich at half off, this isn't bad.

                Though I prefer Mr. Beef...

                  You confused me!  (It's easy)
                   
                  I read what you wrote as LivingSocal.
                   
                  Carry on....

                    Groupon is offering 1/2 deal for SoulFire in Allston, MA which is listed on RoadFood.  Hurry it expires today: (www.groupon.com/deals/soulfire-barbeque-1) 
                     
                    Another pretty good offer is from Boston.com for Speed's Hot Dogs: (deals.boston.com/boston?p1=BostonDeals_Header_TodaysDeals).  Speed's is one of those places that should be listed in Road Food for their 1/2 pound hot dogs as well as the back story.  Plus serving food out of a truck, how neat is that?

                      LivingSocial is offering a $20 voucher for $10 for Al's Beef in Chicago Heights. Al's sells the classic Italian beef sandwich that Chicago is noted for (see RoadFood review - Personally I prefer Mr. Beef but you can't go wrong with Al's.
