    Wow, what an amazing deal! I’ve never eaten at any of these restaurants but my parent’s have said that the Landmark has awesome food. They get certificates off of Restaurant.com and usually save about 50% off their tab when ever they go there. Might have to take my hubby there to eat while this deal is going on. The food sounds amazing.
