worst free meal ever

I got suckered.

It is no secret that I love groupon, livingsocial, and the like. I also use restaurant.com... for about $2, I get $25 gift certificates to restaurants. Well, I got one for a local mexican restaurant in a strip mall about 6 months ago. I was feeling tired and didn't want to drive far, and Larry didn't want to heat up the house by cooking, so we decided to use it. My older brother is in town and a couple friends were going to meet us.....

Fajitas for 2 were $13.99, so we got one beef and one chicken. Add a side a queso, a couple beers and a couple margaritas. Subtract the $25 coupon and I figured we'd be out of there for $20.

OR $89!!!!

$1.99 for some jalepenos
$3.50 for an extra "salad" (lettuce, guacamole and pico)
$17 for gratuity
and obviously many other charges

It wasn't even very good. We won't be going back there.

I can't believe the stupid jalepenos were $1.99! I almost flipped a table up in that place!

Wow! What good is a coupon if they are going to jack up the prices anyway? Restaurant Fail!!!

Holy crap! What a joke! I'd be so ticked.

Attention: I was there and while the ridiculous charges listed are true the majority of the bill was Modelo beer and Mexican Martini's. My head still hurts!

The olives in those martinis tasted like dish water and drano.

Babe,food was over half of the bill. And I'm guessing that you and Adam staying up til 3 in the morning contributed more to your headache than the Modelo did! Admit it - we hate that place now. Try to name a time when you've had worse queso...
