Friday Food Freebies and Deals for 6/12/09

In our ongoing quest to help you never pay full price for chow, here’s our weekly roundup of all the free food, restaurant coupons, fast food deals, and dining discounts we could wrangle.

  • $1.49 Kids’ Meals: We <3 @ABQTupperware for telling us Sonic Drive-In offers $1.49 Wacky Pack Meals every Wednesday from 5:00 – 8:00pm. We can’t find it on their website, but her word is golden here at Cheap Central!
  • Free Hot Dog on a Stick: We also <3 @PCinABQ for telling us about “Free Hot Dog Day”! On Monday, June 15 (2009), from 5:00pm – 8:00pm, stop by either Albuquerque Hot Dog on a Stick location (Cottonwood Mall or Coronado Center) and score a free HDOS! Limit one per person.
  • 60% off dining certificates: Red Plum, that noted purveyor of weekly grocery and restaurant coupons, has branched out online to offering dining certificates at 60% off face value. (Note: link may not work. You may need to enter your zip code at the top and then click “Restaurants.” Then, scroll down to “Gift Certificates.”) Some of these are a great deal, such as a $100 Christy Mae’s certificate for a mere $40! But they also list defunct restaurants, like Whisque, so make sure the restaurant you’re interested in is actually still in business!
  • 60% off Casa Chaco: Speaking of dining certificates, here’s one that gets you a $25 Casa Chaco cert for just $10. Located in the Hilton Albuquerque, this restaurant features “contemporary” cuisine.
  • Discount DaVinci’s Gourmet Pizza: Here is a coupon with several offers to save on yummy DaVinci pizza. Take your pick of $3 off, $9.99 large, or $24.99 meal. We’ve been told DaVinci’s is da bomb. What’s your take? Northeast heights.
  • Kids eat free: At Mario’s Pizzeria and Ristorante every Monday through Thursday. One free kids’ meal with each adult entrĂ©e. Mario’s just opened a new location at 5700 4th St NW, plus they have joints in Uptown and the Heights.
  • Free tacos and salsa bar: Every Tuesday at El Pinto, enjoy complimentary tapas during happy hour. And, trust us, El Pinto does great tacos. North valley.
  • $4 tapas: Speaking of happy hour, One Up Elevated Lounge offers $4 noshes Monday through Saturday, 4:00 – 8:00pm, as their happy hour gift to you. This is fine, high-falutin’ grub, and you can also shoot some pool. Or “billiards,” as we like to call it. Downtown.
  • Half price lunch: Take Dad to lunch at Buca di Beppo on the cheap! You don’t have to tell. Use this coupon to receive $10 off your minimum $20 purchase between 11:00am – 4:00pm on 6/21/09 only. This coupon is even good on to-go orders! Near Coronado Center.

That’s all for this week! Keep sending us your fabulous food freebies and tell us about your fave happy hours. Have a great weekend!
