It’s your birthday and it’s time to celebrate!
Yeah presents, cake, and other great things is amazing, but there’s nothing, and I mean NOTHING, sweeter than free food on your birthday.
First of all it’s free food. Second of all it’s FREE food.
Eating the free food on your birthday is the easy part. The hardest part is just choosing a place to go.
So to make your life, and birthday, a little bit easier, I compiled a list of all the major restaurants across the United States (and even some in Canada for my awesome Canadian readers) that offer free meals, discounts, and free food items on your birthday.
So without further adieu, I give you the greatest list that you will ever feast your eyes on. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

You should add free movie ticket at Alamo Drafthouse and movie tavern. Free mini bunt cake at nothing bunt cakes. Birthday freebies at Sephora and Ulta change frequently but are amazing always available when you sign up and kids get free jump time at sky zone too. Also Godiva.
That’s a huge list!
We have 5 girls and we like to go out on b’days but it can get costly, especially this month. Birthdays this month are Nov 17, 22 and 24, along with Thanksgiving, another b’day Dec 14 and of course, Christmas. It’s so nice to be able to get free food with a busy and expensive 2 months. Thank you for the extensive list. It has been helpful.
My birthday is this wednesday just wanted to know of the birthday disconts for this day on august 10 0f this year
Very impressive indeed.
March 20th birthday, palm Sunday and the vernal equinox when spring begins…got a free medium sub at Firehouse subs in Venice Florida without prior sign up required. Tried IHOP for pancakes, same day sign up didn’t work, required coupon. Out of work and homeless but still fighting for dignity in this world. Parents gone and alone on my b-day so trying to make it happy. Peace to all and since you are here whatever day it is …HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! !!
Went to The Tilted Kilt for my bf’s birthday and he got a free dessert!
Went to two places Pretzelmaker and they don’t do any thing for your birthday…no freebies. Went to Outback and their freebie is a scoop of ice cream.

This list is awesome! Can’t wait to get free stuff for my birthday!
Awesome. All the freebies on one website! Thank you!
The places where they offer free food without signing up or be a part of their program — can we just mention “hey today’s my birthday” get the food and leave? Even if they do offer free food without strings attached, it’s rude to not order something first, right?
Your are write but I went too Denny’s this morning and they give me a free (grand slam).??? and I ordered a orange juice an surprised that the waitress was PRETTY an she said happy b-day.
I went to lubys on fredericksburg rd in san Antonio tx And they did not honor the birthday special.
