Today's Austin Food-Related Groupon
- dinaofdoom Mar 23, 2010 08:47 AM
Since I obsessively check the Groupon deals for several cities every day, I thought I would start an Austin food-related thread.
In the past, I have seen some smatterings of "how is this place?" posts for certain restaurants or stores when there is a Groupon in effect, so hopefully this topic will be useful.
And just so you know, I am in no way affiliated with Groupon.
I just love getting good stuff for cheap(er).
$15 for $30 Worth of Gourmet Olive Oils and Vinegars from Con' Olio Oils & Vinegars
Con' Olio Oils & Vinegars
10000 Research Blvd.
Austin, Texas 78759
**I have been waiting to try this place, ever since I heard about it in this thread:
This will be a good way for me to stock up on pantry items.
I especially like the "tasting" concept, so you know what you are getting.
They are buying oil and rebranding it with the Con'Olio label. This to me, is a warning sign that they are buying cheap oil, slapping their label on it, and selling it with a substantial markup.
The proof is in the tasting, though. If someone goes here, post a review of their oils. I'd be curious.
Wanted to assure you that we do not rebrand our products. We are a local Austin business and we work with other small suppliers from around the world to import the very freshest and highest quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars. You are absolutely correct Malarkey, the proof is in the tasting and that is exactly why we are setup as a tasting bar...so you can taste for yourself before you buy and see how different it is!
there really isn't a way to look at all the old, past ones.
in my estimation, there is usually at least one restaurant offer a week, minimum.
i also look at another city i travel to routinely (boston) as well as houston and dallas, in case i visit.
i am still kicking myself for not purchasing the frank's hot dogs/cold beer one because it's a place i've been meaning to try.
$5 for One Dozen Mini-Cupcakes at Cupprimo Cupcakery ($10 value)
8650 Spicewood Springs Rd.
Austin, Texas 78759
I have not yet tried this place, but since I am an uptown girl AND it's next door to Asia Cafe and Chen's Noodle House, I am so on this.
I mean, really people. It's $5.
Definitely not a splurge.
If it's not yummy, I am only out a fin.

$12 for $25 Worth of Pizza and Drinks at Rome's Pizza
9225 W Parmer Ln.
Austin, Texas 78717
This place is near my house and work, and we can get it delivered to Little Woodrow's when we have our drinks-after-work night.
The pizza is pretty good, although I got really cranky the last time I got it delivered.
The menu they left at my apartment complex that day did not mention any delivery fees, and the prices were a few dollars less than what they charged me.
The woman on the phone was kinda rude about it and said it must be an old menu.
But I was hungry, and the pizza was good.
For $12, I am willing to deal (no pun intended).
