If you've been frustrated looking for the best deals in your city, a new website is here to help.

Burban is the project of UNC Asheville graduate Ailis Grosh, created after she became frustrated looking through multiple sites for deals and coming up short.

Her new site, and soon to be app, features a map which shows icons where deals can be found on any specific day of the week.

"You know, most of the time you’d find a site that listed specials if you were lucky and it was up to date," Grosh said. "But then, you’d have to go look up the business on Google Maps to see if it was nearby. And, if it’s not, you’d have to start the process all over again. So, I actually started it for a school project my last semester of college at UNC Asheville, and people were really interested in it, so I decided to keep working on it."

Filters can be applied to select a day or a number of days with options for food, drinks and entertainment.

You can also check a box to see which locations allow dogs and which are family friendly.

Hover over that location and the box that pops up will display the deal along with Google and Yelp! ratings for that business.

The site only works in Asheville, but Grosh has plans to expand.
