Birthdays are always fun, but can be that much more exciting when you can get appetizers, coupons and desserts for free, right? Especially for kids. Below is a list of restaurants where you can get a little something extra for your birthday- regardless of your age.
On a side note, I would always double check with the restaurants to make sure they are still having these promotional offers. While I checked in with the restaurants listed below, some promotions may vary depending on location and state–or whether or not they are a franchise.
Also, please feel free to add to the list by leaving us a comment. I know there are a lot of places that offer free birthday goodies!
