We’ve updated our Birthday Free Food list! Some are just for kids, but plenty include eats for adults. For 2018, we’ve noticed that many restaurants are switching to reward programs instead of single birthday meal specials (look for the UPDATE flag for program changes from last year).
For most you’ll need to register or sign up for a mailing list – and for many of these, you’ll get free food just for signing up! Just remember that tax or tip are not included and some may require the purchase of something else to get the freebie.
Also keep in mind that offer details may change at any time and in most cases, you must be at least 13 or 18 years of age to enroll.
So browse our list to find a favorite place to celebrate that special day.
