I think if you are going to eat breakfast in the room and get a snack for lunch, then I agree that eating off property makes better sense.

You mentioned giordano's for pizza. Great place. It is listed on www.restaurants.com. Look there for coupons that can be purchased for deep discounts. We used a $25 coupon last month . There were three of us on the ticket so the required spending level was easy to meet. BTW, I bought the coupon when it was on sale at $4. That way we saved $21 on the bill. There are several levels of coupons so if $25 is too much then a lower level might work.
