Three Affordable Restaurants Perfect for a Date Night


So what if you’ve been married for years; you need to go on a date night. With kids, work and the stress of day-to-day life, date night is what keeps your marriage exciting, life fun and things all around enjoyable. After all, you need some time away to keep your sanity when the kids are getting crazy, and there’s no reason you should skip out on that just because others make you feel guilty about leaving the kids at home. No matter what you do in life, you can’t please everyone so you might as well please yourself and stop worrying about what everyone else thinks.

Date night, contrary to the beliefs of some, is not a bad thing. Being married doesn’t exempt you from dating one another. And being married with kids doesn’t mean you can’t have a little adults-only time away from time to time. Anyone who tries to make you feel like a bad parent for taking a few hours to yourself is not worth your time, and we have come up with a great list of places you can eat on date night without spending a fortune and breaking your carefully planned budget.

OutBack Steakhouse

Can’t afford date night? Don’t give me that; you can. For example, you can open Google and type in “Outback Steakhouse Coupons,” right now and get awesome coupons for dinner that will save you a lot of money. Saving money is a great reason to go out on date night, especially if the thought of spending it on yourself is what’s stopping you. Outback offers promotions throughout the year both online and in their locations; all you have to do is look for them.

Olive Garden

Olive Garden frequently offers coupons in the Sunday paper that will give you a certain amount off your purchase, such as $10 off the purchase of a $25 check, buy one get one free appetizers and even happy hour drinks on certain nights at certain times. These things can add up to make your meal a bit more affordable so that you can enjoy that much-needed date night with your spouse.


It’s a bit casual, but aren’t most date nights on a budget? Chilis is a bar and grille that offers plenty of incentives such as coupons, deals and free food. You can find coupons for Chilis online, by visiting their Facebook page and in the paper. Additionally, you can also head in there any hour of any day and enjoy two-for-one drinks and free chips and salsa when you sit in the bar area. This can save a lot of money when it’s time to pay that bill.
