    So after reading the fine print on these; its not that they are cheap eats. Just better food, cheaper. Right?????

    If you are planning on going to that restaurant or it's very close then YES do the restaurant.com thing....we have had great success at home with them......ALSO check out Groupon for the Vegas area or at home...another steal deal but in either case don't chase your tail.

    In April we have a BOGO free including all our drinks (wine, beer or champ) at the Spicey Grill at PH plus a $30 certificate that cost us $15 to use at the KGB restaurant at Harrah's where we are staying, all from Groupon......so start digging and get some FREE (my favorite 4 letter word) food.

    What would really be ideal is to check on these deals while in Vegas and print the coupon out then......some allow you to down load to a smart phone which we don't have.....smart phone makes dumb people...LOL

    Hey Now!

    R.com coupons become a better deal if the restaurant forgets to add the gratuity upfront. Had that happen a couple of times.

    I would hope that after using a $10 , $15 , $25 certificate, that you are in fact tipping at a fair amount on the original billing, before the discount.

    Standard tip is 20 - 25% these days, so them adding on 18% is low. We always add more.
