Not About Food 1

I've bought a couple of Groupon-type deals -- merchandise and services -- and generally they were good experiences. I'm curious about the deals to be had a restaurants but have been averse to pressing the button as my sense is either the food or service will be lacking -- you get what you pay for.

Ideally, I'd use the deal as an intro to a place and I'd be a returning customer paying full price. Or, I'd buy it for a restaurant I normally frequent as my own loyalty reward (this is a strategy Zane Caplansky uses.) But I can see how showing up with a coupon would be met with lacking reception or kids' sized portions.

Tell me your good and not good experiences...
