It's a great time to get good deals and try out new places to eat in the Quad Cities.

QC Restaurant Week is organized by VisitQuadCities.com and it's always something I look forward to.

If you go to VisitQuadCities.com, you'll find a list of participating restaurants in the our area that offer dine-in or carry-out options. Restaurants usually do some kind of Restaurant Week promotion to let you try new food options at a good price.
