Black Friday is just around the corner, which for many means reviving yourself out of that food coma and burning off the Turkey Day pounds by hunting for the best shopping deals. It's an exercise in endurance, and you will no doubt require food and drink sustenance between fighting for parking and wrestling that lady for the last Star Wars Lego set.
When you’re finished with the Black Friday shopping fray, keep these restaurant deals on food and drink in mind. You'll need to regroup as you add up all the money saved, and these places give you just that.
