Pick your favorite, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, organize an epic restaurant road trip on your next birthday and eat for free all day long (just don’t tell them we told you to do that).

1. Denny’s

En Denny’s agradecemos los clientes fabulosos que tenemos y al chef que hizo este tremendo platillo, el Turkey & Dressing Dinner. #HappyThanksGiving

Do you believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, so does Denny’s. Start your birthday off right with a free Grand Slam breakfast at this classic American diner. It’s easy; just prove you’re one year older than you were yesterday by showing the wait staff your identification.


Sign up for MyHop and get free pancakes. And with the money you save, you can buy candles that say “free pancakes.” That’s economics, baby! http://bit.ly/2LFSs54

If eggs over-easy isn’t your thing, then head to IHOP (the International House of Pancakes, to do justice to their full name), for a delicious, buttery pancake breakfast instead! Sign up on the IHOP website first to redeem the coupon.

And as if a birthday freebie wasn’t enough, you’ll even get a complementary stack of pancakes when you sign up and another free stack one year later. Call it an “IHOP birthday” if you will.

3. Waffle House

Where would we be without our daily caffeine injection? Well, birthdays are no different! But now you can enjoy your daily mug of joe on the house, courtesy of America’s favorite coffee chain, Starbucks. If you join their rewards club, you’re entitled to a free beverage of any size on your birthday.

You might even be tempted to upgrade after you learn that Gold members can choose between a drink or a delicious food item.

5. Qdoba Mexican Grill

Our shrimp is roasted with mucho fuego and mucho flavor. Try it on our Shrimp and Guac burrito.

Qdoba Mexican Grill loves that it’s your birthday! So much so that they want to infuse your day with as much flavor as possible by gifting you a free burrito. You know the drill by now; join their rewards club so that you can redeem the coupon before your special day.

6. Red Robin

The great thing about birthdays is that you get a free pass to indulge your guiltiest food pleasures. If you love burgers (and are fully fledged Red Robin Royalty, of course), then you can cash in on their kindness and claim a free burger of your choice on your birthday.

With Red Robin, you don’t just have to pig out on your special day, either; their offer is valid once throughout the entire month of your birthday, and no coupons are needed.

7. Moe’s Southwest Grill

A Sunday dinner we can all get behind.

Moe’s Southwest Grill’s Moe Rewards program is all about making your birthday as rockin’ as can be. How do they do it? With a free burrito! However, there is a catch. “Just please don’t wear your birthday suit when trying to redeem,” they plead.

That seems like a fair compromise.

8. Olive Garden

Let us handle the food so you can focus on more important details… like enjoying the moment. 💞👰🏼

Olive Garden စာစုတင်ရာတွင် အသုံးပြုမှု ၂၀၁၉၊ ဇွန် ၃၀၊ တနင်္ဂနွေနေ့

We’re entering dessert territory now. Love Italian food? Love it enough to be a member of the Olive Garden eClub? Then you’re in luck! Olive Garden generously offers a free dessert up to the value of $10 on your birthday.

Remember: enter your birth date and a valid email address when you become a member to be eligible for the coupon.

9. Baskin Robbins

BRB! Get a scoop of the Flavor of the Month, Bobsled BrownieⓇ before it’s too late!

Baskin-Robbins စာစုတင်ရာတွင် အသုံးပြုမှု ၂၀၁၈၊ ဇန်နဝါရီ ၁၊ တနင်္လာနေ့

It’s ice-cream time! Sign up for the Baskin Robbins Birthday Club and, well, it does what it says on the tin. When your birthday rolls around, you will be entitled to a free 2.5 ounce scoop and $3.00 off an ice-cream cake. The club also offers members regular coupons and sneaky peeks at new flavors. Irresistible!

10. Krispy Kreme

No Sunday scaries with this delicious treat. 🍩😄👍

Okay, one last dessert option. After all, what’s a birthday without a cake? Or, in this case, a donut? A Krispy Kreme donut is free of charge and waiting for you on your birthday if you sign up for Krispy Kreme’s rewards program. Bonus gift: a free, original glazed donut, just for signing up.

Birthdays never tasted so good!
