Restaurants want to entice you to dine on your birthday because they know you won’t be coming alone. They’re willing to give you free food because they know your party is going to spend big bucks on your big day. But if you’re planning on dining out on your birthday anyway, you might as well go some place where you’ll get a freebie. Food does seem to taste better when it’s free.
Note that some of these offers may no longer be valid because restaurants change their policies and promotions all the time. Others require you to join their newsletter or rewards program. The good news is that joining is free and you even get a coupon emailed to you when you join too. Nevertheless, here’s a list of restaurants that offer free food on your birthday.
