We splurge sometimes. I mean, we’re human! And we love food! Our policy is to eat roadfood on our travels. (see our post, “How to Find the Unusual on Your Roadtrip”, https://tinyurl.com/y2cr6wke and see the Roadfood section).


However, when in New Orleans, we are not about to miss gourmet meals in the French Quarter! Or in Tucson! (see our post on delicious eats in Tucson, “Foodies Take Note! Tucson Has it All!” http://thetravelingseniors.com/foodies-take-note/).  


We are simple people. Mom and Pop local eats are the very best and we have met owners and servers willing to sit and share town and restaurant history, legends and stories! That experience cannot be beat!


There are times when we eat at “regular” restaurants. But bargain travel means knowing where we can get senior discounts in restaurants. 



For that reason, we are grateful that again this year, our friends at The Senior List®  (www.theseniorlist.com) have researched the 2019 List of Senior Discounts on Restaurants we use when traveling.
