Applebees has that "two for 20" deal where you get an appetizer and two entrees (you have to pick from a list) for $20, which is a pretty good deal for Applebees.

Kids 4 under free at Ryans, 12 under 3.99 for the buffet - used to be everyone 8.00 plus at Ryans a few towns over by my mom's- so we (fam of 5) go there occasionally for just at or under $30- take our time and fill them up but for the most part I recreate almost anything we get at the restaurants at this point- pain in the butt but huge savings in the pocket
