The groupon for 20.00 for 40.00 is a complete waste of time! FIGS does not serve ANYthing on their menu before 5pm. Only Salad. I went there at 4pm, the place was open and was told that up to 5pm they serve Salad. After 5pm they serve what is on the menu, even though they open at 11:30am. There are no disclaimers on the Living social site and when you complain to Living Social they tell you too bad, that's the way it is. There are too many discrepancies in the Living Social vouchers and they are just not worth it, cause the restaurants that solicit business thru Living Social, REALLY need the business and that's the only way they are going to get it....by giving things for half price. Every hear of a restaurant ONLY serving salad until 5pm, when the menu is posted from 11:30am ?
