Seniors can eat for less at new restaurant

Talk about your senior discount.

Nutrition Services, Inc., the current provider for senior nutrition program services in Region 4 -- which includes Detroit Lakes -- now offers a new service for area seniors age 60 and above.

Any senior resident of the lakes area age 60 and above, as well as their spouse (even if under age 60) may dine at Detroit Lakes' newest restaurant, Outer Limits, for a suggested contribution of $2.75-$3.25 per meal.

Those who sign up for this "Diner's Club" will be able to choose from nutritious breakfast, lunch and supper menus created specifically for the program by Outer Limits.

Participants will need to complete and sign a registration form the first time they make use of the Diner's Club program. A red meal ticket will be given to each diner signed up for the program -- this ticket must be signed and dated by the participant at each meal.

Outer Limits is located on the site of the former Corner Cantina restaurant, at the corner of Highway 59 and County Road 6 south of Detroit Lakes.

According to Outer Limits co-owner Billy Wischnak, his partner Shawn Parsons suggested signing up for the Diner's Club program because his other restaurant, City Limits in Frazee, is a participant.

"We think it will help out seniors in the area," Wischnak said.

The Diner's Club program will be available during the Outer Limits' regular hours, which are 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and from 6 a.m. Friday to 9 p.m. Sunday on weekends.

For more information, call the Outer Limits at 847-5028 or Nutrition Services, inc., at 877-498-2865.
