Customers are scoring big deals this week at Quad City restaurants. The second-annual "Quad Cities Restaurant Week" has begun.
     
More than 30 restaurants in the QC are taking part this year, offering specials like a 3-course dinner for only $20. 
     
Organizers say they want to show how important restaurants are to the QC economy.

"It's a feeling, it's a food, it's service that you really can't replicate anywhere else," President of the Quad Cities Convention & Visitor's Bureau, Joey Taylor said.

"It gets people out instead of thinking about cooking in because it's a little chilly outside," manager of food and beverage at the Hotel Blackhawk, Derek Roorda said. "Getting them out there and getting them trying places they normally wouldn't go and for us that an important thing just to have people experience something different in their backyard."
     
The Convention and Visitors Bureau says restaurants are already down 15-to-20 percent this year, partly because of the harsh weather we've had. Restaurants are hoping for a big week.
