In a fantasy existence, snagging primo -- yet somehow affordable -- reservations at a classy restaurant on Valentine's Day would be a cinch. Or maybe in this magical land, Valentine's Day wouldn't even exist.
Alas, here in the very real world of overbooked dining rooms and -- let's be honest here -- sometimes overpriced prix fixe menus, V-Day in a restaurant can be an expensive pain in the ass. Pollo Tropical's holiday special may offer a solution for folks who don't care about fancy settings and fanciful ingredients.
The fast casual chain is offering a "two can dine for $9.99" deal all day on Thursday, February 14. Text "SWEETHEART" to 52198 on that day and you'll get a coupon code redeemable for lunch or dinner at any company-owned restaurant. The offer is good for takeout or dine-in and there's a limit of one coupon per couple.
The deal includes two entrees (like a small create-your-own TropiChop or quarter-chicken platter), two regular-sized fountain drinks, and a regular-sized order of yuca sticks or sweet plantains, plus a free flan.
It's not a candlelit dinner for two at a white-linen-tablecloth restaurant, but at least it won't set you back a few Benjamins and it comes with zero pretension.
