Dining Tips from your East Riverside Austin Apartments

No matter how you slice it, going out to eat is more expensive than cooking meals in your East Riverside Austin apartments. That being said, restaurants don’t have to be quite as expensive as we make them out to be.


In the blog post below, we’ll be sharing a few tips and strategies that should help you save money every time you go out to eat. Going out to eat is one of the best parts about living in Austin, so you should do everything you can to cut down on how much it costs. The less you spend each time you dine out, the more often you’ll be able to go out to eat!


Now that we’ve gotten the intro out of the way, let’s get right to the list of tips for being fiscally responsible when you go out to eat. When you finish reading through this week’s blog, we’d love it if you’d take a second to share this post with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments in East Riverside Austin!


Stop deleting your emails.


Your email inbox could be a treasure trove of coupons and BOGO deals for your favorite restaurants, but you’ll never know if you keep deleting those promotional emails before you ever open them. Next time you’re thinking of planning a trip to a restaurant, comb through your promotional inbox and see if you have any coupons. You never know what kind of savings might be in there!


Say no to drinks


The first time you go out to eat without ordering drinks will be the first time you realize that restaurants aren’t actually all that expensive. Drinks, on the other hand, are. It’ll feel weird to turn the waiter down when he asks you what you want to drink, but you’ll get over it. Once you see how low your final bill is, you’ll be glad you suffered through the momentary awkwardness.


Make early dinner plans


The earlier you go out to eat, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to order drinks and appetizers off the happy hour menu. Most happy hours go until 5:30 or 6:00, so try to get to the restaurant before that cutoff. Dinner is a lot more affordable when drinks and apps are half-off.
