Man..that sounds like one full day of eatin!

I think with Todai you pay for your birthday meal and they give you a coupon for free meal on a return visit...

fuddrucker's is still around? any list of locations? there sued to be one enar me but it's been gone foir awhile

dennys


thanks stuph!

Okay, FREEBIES for Birthday's,

--Red Robin: FREE cake or dessert sunday
--Denny's: FREE MEAL + FREE DRINK + FREE DESSERT (Order VERY expensive and go for breakfast AND DINNER) [Offer not available at all Denny's]
----SPECIAL trick @ Denny's: Bring your kids on your Tuesday birthday = you eat free & kids eat free too!
--Alfy's Pizza: FREE mini pizza (just show up and show your ID). I once went to 5 Alfy's in one night on the way home, showed each my ID, and came home with 5 mini pizza's. Yum!
--Car Wash: Captain Dizzy's in your area? Show ID and get a free car wash
--Food Pavilion grocery store: FREE movie rental
--Safeway grocery store: FREE movie rental
--Baskin Robbins: FREE ice cream treat
--Some tanning places: FREE tan on your birthday

I know we said restaurants, but I know of so many that I just HAD to share!
Merry Christmas all!

Thanks!!!

All b-day freebies are welcomed!!!

Hmmm... it seems Dennys lied to me. I called 5 locations around So Cal and they told me the free meal for birthdays was discontinued by the corporate. I remembered when I was a kid, we had it. Anyways, here's some more that I found out by calling:

Marie Calenders: Free Dessert
Bobs Big Boy: Free Hot Fudge Ice Cream
Carrows: Free Birthday Cake
Home Town Buffet: Free Birthday Cake

Does anyone know about Norms? I know places that give free meals are harder and harder to find. This is a good thread. Thanks!!

TGI Fridays: Free Birthday Dessert
-- mrcodedude

and they sing. dont forget the singing. and the balloons

Claim Jumper - Free Desert + sing
Bakers Square - Free Pie

Oh yeah!

It's my birthday today, and I'm gonna eat good!!!

Woohoo!


Today is my birthday...was thinking about going to Todai...but I ate too much yesterday, I don't think I could handle a buffet. Denny's was looking good til that post about it being discontinued. Oh well

Happy Birthday y'all!!!

The Olive Garden gives you free CAKE and they also sing for you!

Denny's no longer gives the free meal for your birthday. My wife and I went there and they declined.

Taking your wife to Denny's on her birthday sounds so romantic.

and better yet to get a free meal? Romantic and cheap...

but then she knew you was cheap before she married you.. right?

From the Todai website:


<< Dine at Todai ON your birthday and receive an equal value 'Goodwill Certificate' for future visits (ID required). >>

But...when the wife and I went there to celebrate her birthday, my wife's buffet was free rather than giving us the "certificate" for a future visit.

Macoroni Gril is the place to go for your birthday. I am not aware of free food offerings, but what they do for you is get an OPERA singer (who happens to work there) to sing "Happy Birthday" in Italian (i think)... pretty cool

hey everyone...come to my house on your birthhday. there wont be a damn thing going on here...so u can take me out to share your free cake!

my birthday is just too far away...and i feel like cake and ice cream!

j/k...but happy b-day to those to whom it applies.

Hollywood Video gives a free rental on your birthday.

I better bookmark this thread, my birthday is coming up in about a week. Maybe I can finally get a decent meal soon Better plan my whole day in advance for as much free food as I can. Oh yeah, and thanks to all who posted the deals

At Hooter's Resturaunts, on your birthday they have you stand on a stool and all the Hooter Girls stand around the stool below you, and sing. It's good for a laugh, even if its not your birthday...I've never seen an instance where they ask for ID.

and here I must quote Mr. Eric Cartman of South Park, Colorado.

"cuz it's mah birth-day, mah buh-buh-buh-birthday!"

Chevy's give you dessert and sombrero
Cattlemen's give you dessert and cowboy hat

btw: for those with recent bdays, since it's also xmas time, how many gifts did you get?

Buffalo Wild Wings (BW3) gives you a dozen hot wings. Locations

Red Lobster will have waitreses clap and sing to you and you get free slice of cake.
Usually Choc. Yum Yum

Charlie Browns Restaurants in NJ have a "Handshake Club" - I think you get a free meal for your birthday or something.


Here's the link:

Handshake Club

My wifes Birthday was Christmas and none of these damn places were open!

a lot of strip clubs give you free lap dances on your birthday on stage by atleast 5 women

Benihana's Japanese Restaurants - Free meal on birthday! Expensive and very good. Great deal!

Benihanas.. free dinnerWITH3 other paying guests....

Baker's Square gives you a free piece of pie.

Your kids can get a free kids meal at California Pizza Kitchen during the month of their birthday. You must register at their website, and they'll send you a postcard/coupon.

Grillfish will give you a free meal on your birthday.
Take a look here for the rules:

I went to Benihanas for my birthday (City of Industry, CA) last year and I didn't get a free meal, do you have to request it?
