Two for one at Maggiano's...

Maggiano's Little Italy is offering a crazy two-for-one deal at all of its 44 restaurant locations, including the one at The Streets at Southpoint in Durham, NC.

The deal, called "Today & Tomorrow" allows customers to choose two meals, one to eat in the restaurant and one to take home for later. The price for both: $12.95.

The offer is available for dine-in patrons only and it does limit customers to specific menu choices. But the classic lasagne is one of them, along with four cheese ravioli and baked ziti with sausage. Here's the promotion for the Streets at Southpoint. It's good through Oct. 28. And here's a Restaurant News story discussing the expansion of the deal.
