Use this coupon to get $3 off food delivery from Just Dine In! Order online and get hot food from your fave eatery delivered to your door. What could be better?

15% Off Sushi: We’re always trying to find pleasing deals for our sushi-loving readers. This Valpak coupon nets you 15% off your total bill (exclusing drinks) or $5 off at Sushiya in the northeast heights.

Half Price Sushi: In other Asian dining news, Alibi Bucks offers a half-price dining certificate to Sushi Gen, while supplies last. (Scroll waaay down the page to find it!) Specifically, get a $20 certificate for a mere $10.

We verify these deals as best we can, but we strongly recommend you call to double-check the deals yourself before heading out to redeem any offers. These deals can change or go poof quicker than you can say “boo.” Remember, all restaurant deals are only available at “participating locations.” Be sure your preferred location is participating in order to avoid disappointment!

Yahoo! It’s the weekend! Let’s celebrate with some cheap chow.

  • $5.99 pizza: We have it on the good authority of @ACHenton from Twitter that Papa John’s pizza kicks off Customer Appreciation Days this Saturday (7/18/09) by offering a large, one-topping pizza for just $5.99! Carryout only. Ms. Henton reports this deal recurs the 3rd Saturday of every month. Papa John’s has 16 locations around the state, from Farmington to Las Cruces. Not sure if the deal is good at all of them, but for sure in Albuquerque.
  • Free birthday dessert: Jack’s back in Albuquerque, and you’re getting the present! Print out this coupon for a free dessert at Jack in the Box. It’s valid through 2010, but you can only redeem it on your actual birth date and you must present ID. Sounds reasonable. There are currently two locations in Albuquerque, one in Las Cruces, and a ton in El Paso.
  • Free sandwich: And this time, we know positively the local Arby’s are participating because the info comes from our friend Ron, King of the Freebies. Use this coupon for a free Arby’s BBQ Bacon Cheddar Roastburger with any soft drink purchase. Note: check this link frequently, as they keep extending the expiration date on the coupon. The current coupon expires 7/17/09.
  • $1 off: Use this coupon for $1 off Wendy’s new Sweet & Spicy Asian, Bold Buffalo, or Honey BBQ Chicken. Easy peasy. Bunch of Wendy’s around the metro area.
  • Free Mocha Mondays: This McDonald’s promotion is good through August 3. Every Monday between 7:00am and 7:00pm, stop by for a free sample of iced or hot mocha. No rigamarole. As far as we know, all Mickey Dees are participating. Via Cities on the Cheap with thanks!
  • Two dine for $20: Chili’s has jumped on the dining deal bandwagon with a new “3-for-20” promotion. Choose an appetizer to share, two entrées (from a list of 15 choices), and one dessert. Pretty sure this applies to dine-in only. We’ve been told by the Cottonwood location GM that this deal is good on to-go orders also! Eight Chili’s locations in Albuquerque, Los Lunas, and Rio Rancho.
  • $3.50 off delivery: If you’re too tired or hot to cook and don’t feel like venturing out, why not get your chow delivered? Use this $3.50 off coupon (scroll to bottom) from Just Dine In to get restaurant delivery for only a buck-fifty! Just Dine In delivers food from a wide selection of local restaurants, and they just added Light & Healthy Mirai Express and Chow’s Asian Bistro! Minimum food order $20. Delivery all around Albuquerque.
  • $1.99 rotisserie chicken: Boston Market’s popular “Add-On Chicken” promotion is back. Add a rotisserie chicken to any family meal for $1.99. No coupon required. However, here’s a coupon for $2 off a $10 order, which we’re pretty sure you can use with the chicken deal. In effect, that would make the chicken FREE! Three Boston Market locations in Albuquerque.
  • Wine tasting: Saturday, July 18 (2009), from 2:00 – 4:00pm, Jubilation Fine Wines & Spirits hosts a “Classical Wines of Spain” tasting. Try 10 different wines, including Poema Cava Brut, Sexto Terra Alta 2006, and Cellar Passnau “Ceps Nous” 2006 — rated 92 points by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate! All free, natch. Jubilation is located at Lomas and Carlisle.
  • Free samplings at Sunflower: Sunflower Farmers Market on Lomas offers several delicious tastings this week. Saturday (7/18) try barbecued ribs from 11:00am – 3:00pm; Tuesday (7/21) sample a variety of iced teas from 2:00 – 5:00pm; Wednesday (7/22) try out various components of summer meals, such as potato salad, from 2:00 – 5:00pm. Lomas and San Mateo location only. (Note the Corrales SFM location has suspended events until further notice. Also, the new SFM at San Mateo and Osuna is slated to open around 7/29.)

We’re experimenting with an afternoon edition of the newsletter. When you do prefer to get your deals? First thing in the morning or later in the afternoon? Don’t really care either way? You can let us know. Or not.

That’s all the food deals we can round up! Have a wonderful weekend. And stay cool!

Feeling too tired or lazy to cook? Coordinating an impromptu office lunch with a bunch of co-workers? Make your life easier by ordering in.

Through the end of April (2009), Just Dine In is offering a $3 off coupon for orders placed via the Internet. (Scroll to the bottom of the newsletter to find the coupon.) Just Dine In offers Albuquerque food delivery from a variety of local restaurants. Your restaurant choices depend on your location.

We’ve found Just Dine In very convenient here at Cheap Central. If only they could bring us a dry martini, life would be complete.

Living in Albuquerque has many fantastic benefits. Unfortunately, food delivery isn’t one of them. Save for pizza, a couple of Chinese restaurants, and Jason’s Deli, there just aren’t a lot of options for the person who just doesn’t feel like cooking on a given night.

Just Dine In is a local business that fills the food delivery niche in Albuquerque. You pop over to their website, enter your zip code, and choose chow from a slew of participating restaurants, ranging from Cake Fetish to Chili’s to Taco Sal’s. Place your order online, and Just Dine In will deliver it to you for a mere $5.

But right now, you can get food delivery by Just Dine In for FREE! That’s right: a cost of zero, zip, nada.

Use this coupon to get great Italian food from Zio’s Italian Kitchen or Bravo! Cucina Italiana (one of our faves) delivered to your home or office for free! Minimum order $20. And please remember to tip your driver!

Note the coupon is only good on deliveries from Zio’s and Bravo! But who doesn’t love Italian?

Act fast, because this offer expires 3/31/09. You’re welcome.
