Some days I just don't have the energy to make dinner. But it doesn't mean I have to go broke eating out.
Localdines.com is a site that gives you great discounts at restaurants around the Valley.
You'll find everything from pizza to Mexican and Asian dishes.
There are more than 80 restaurants to choose from.
You simply choose the restaurant you want to try and you can buy a gift certificate for half off.
That means you can buy a $30 gift certificate to Cadillac Ranch for just $15.
Buy a $30 gift certificate to San Felipe’s Cantina for $15.
Or try the Melting Pot for half off -- Get a $50 gift certificate for $25.
What I like about this site is not only are you getting a great deal, but there are no fees and very few restrictions.
Some of the gift certificates are for dine-in only and can not be used during happy hour, but still great deals.
The site allows you to preview the menu at all the restaurants and even offers video tours to help you decide if it's really a place you want to try.
There are only a limited amount of gift certificates for each restaurant so load up now for those nights when you just don't feel like cooking and want to try something new at a great price.
