If you are looking for a place to catch a bite for lunch this week in the Denver area, there are plenty of restaurants with great deals currently available. Here are a few highlights:

Living Social has a deal for a nice little steak bar in the Highlands area called LoHi Steak Bar. The deal will net you a $30 restaurant credit for $15 for lunch. I’ve been to this place for dinner and the food was pretty good, although a bit pricey. With a $15 for $30 offer, you should have a good experience. Most of the online review sites have LoHi Steak Bar rated around a 3.8 (out of 5) and I would agree.

Groupon has a lunch deal for Buckhorn Exchange that will net you $25 to spend at lunch for $15. Buckhorn Exchange is a Denver landmark, as the building was a saloon originally founded in 1893.  Inside, you’ll be greeted by taxidermy head of various wild animals, which could be a little off-setting to some.  While their dinner menu features a ton of wild game, the lunch menu is more conservative with burgers, sandwiches & salads as the primary options.

If you’re in the mood for a sub at lunch, Groupon also has a deal for Planet Sub near 14th & California in Downtown Denver. The offer will get you $25 to spend at the restaurant for $15.  $25 should be plenty to get two of their tasty subs, so make sure to bring a friend.  I’ve had the “Dagwood’s Dream” there and it was very good. I’ve also wanted to try “the experience” as well.

If you live in or near Aurora, then you may want to consider a Groupon offer for The Bent Noodle. The deal will net you a $30 dining credit for $20. The online reviews for The Bent Noodle are fair, with the restaurant getting a 3.5 on yelp & a 4 star rating on both Google & One comment that is common among the reviews is the large portion size given out by the restaurant.

Groupon also has a $20 credit for $14 deal for Tuk-Tuk Grill in Lakewood.  I’ve been to the Tuk-Tuk in the Tech Center many times as it was one of my favorite lunch spots. My co-workers loved the pad thai, but I always ordered the Combo fried rice. While I have never been to the Lakewood location, the menu appears to be the same.  This deal isn’t the best value dollar wise, but the food here is good.

In Colorado Springs, there is a Living Social deal for Texas T-bone Steakhouse which gives you $40 to spend in the restaurant for $24. Texas T-Bone Steakhouse has some decent rating online (3.5 on Yelp & Trip Advisor, 4.0 on Google) but the individual reviews are all over the board.  Some really enjoyed their experience while others were very disappointed. There were a number that complained the prices were too high for the food quality, so something to keep in mind.

Finally, there is a Living Social deal for Jimmy’s Urban Bar & Grill in downtown Denver (15th & Blake) giving you $20 for $10. Jimmy’s has some great online reviews, sporting 4 star ratings on Google, Yelp & OpenTable. There was also a write-up in Westword in 2013 at the opening of the restaurant. Sandwiches run about $10-$12, while entrees are about $18 on average, so this Groupon won’t get you too far if you are eating with other people, but it is a good value given the reviews.

Pizza is one of those universal foods that almost everyone likes. When Pizza is good, its really good, but when its bad, well…it’s still pretty good. If you’re craving pizza, there are plenty of offers available now through Groupon & Living Social.

Living Social has a decent deal going for Basil Doc’s pizza, netting you $30 to spend for just $18. This offer is good for three locations, two on Holly Street and one on East Virginia Avenue in Denver.  Basil Doc’s is on the pricier side (a large specialty is $27), so the Groupon should cover a large or a couple of small pizzas. I’ve had their Santa Fe White pizza and it was pretty good.  I’ve had better white pizzas in the area, but I would say it was worth the $18 deal.

Living Social is also running a special offer for Mici Handcrafted Italian, which includes Two Salads, 10-Inch Pizzas, Small Gelatos & a Bottle of Wine for $35.  Mici Handcrafted Italian is well reviewed online, with a 4.2 rating on Google & a 4-star rating in Yelp.

Groupon has a deal for Sexy Pizza, with three locations across Denver including Capitol Hill, Pearl Street & Jefferson Park.  The deal is for a $25 restaurant credit for $17.  An 18″ large specialty pizza runs about $20, so the Groupon should cover it.

TravelZoo has a dinner for two offer from Pasquini’s on South Broadway in Denver for $29.  This deal includes a shared appetizer, two entrees & two desserts (doesn’t look to include drinks).  Pasquini’s has a three star rating online, and having eaten their, I tend to agree. It’s decent, and this deal looks to be a good value.
