What’s better than celebrating your birthday? Celebrating with free food.

We know what you’re thinking. Is it really free? Yes. There are multiple restaurants around the country that treat their customers to a freebie meal or food item as a birthday treat. Most require signing up to their email list or rewards program, but that is typically free as well.

Travel Noire has rounded up some of the best deals out there including free pancakes, wings, burgers, sandwiches, frozen yogurt, and ice cream. Read on to find out which restaurants offer free food on your birthday.

1. Benihana

Sign up for Benihana’s Chef’s table and during your birthday month they will email you a $30 Birthday Certificate.

2. Denny's

The American diner hits it out of the park with a free grand slam breakfast and a rendition of the Happy Birthday song. Just sign up for Denny’s rewards to receive your coupon, also completely free.


Get a free full stack of Pancakes with any topping by signing up for emails. The offer can be used seven days before your birthday, on your birthday, or seven days after. But it gets better. You also get free pancakes for signing up and on the anniversary of the sign-up.
