Abilene has dozens of places to choose from, from local to chain restaurants with just about every style of food available.
But, with today's economy eating out is a luxury.
The uncertainty of Wall Street is leaving many dinning tables empty, so local restaurants are revamping their menus for an affordable date night.
For people wanting to go out as a family several restaurants are offering deals for those with smaller appetites.
Deals like these can really add up.
Deals all over town are popping up, but many are for a limited time and are subject to change.
The restaurants say just because the meals are costing less doesn't mean that the meals are any smaller.
You're still getting the same quality food, just at a better price.
