When we were kids, it seemed like every restaurant around was lining up, ready to give us a yummy, free dessert when we told them it was our birthday. Nowadays it seems as if fewer places are offering this – or maybe we just notice more since we’re the ones paying our own checks – but either way, below are 8 places still ready and willing to make you feel special on your big day.
One “delicious birthday gift” could be yours – if you sign up for their reward’s program!
You can get a free scoop – in a cone or a dish – on your birthday.
If you sign up for their reward’s program, you’ll get two bonus pancakes – one order on your birthday and another on the anniversary of when you signed up!
There are some conditions – you have to pay for at least one entree and you have to sign up to get your birthday certificate – but if you do, they’ll give you a $30 discount on your big day. 30 bucks ain’t nothing, right?
#4. Jersey Mike’s
You only get one in your lifetime, but the sub chain will give up a free sub and 22oz fountain drink on your big day.
#3. Buca di Beppo
If you make reservations for 4 or more, you’ll score a free dessert!
#2. Panera Bread
You’ll get a free pastry – cookie, bagel, muffin, etc – on your birthday (if you sign up for their reward program). Allow me to recommend the cinnamon scone, because you will not be disappointed.
You have to sign up for their reward program, but if you do, you’ll get a free sundae on your birthday (and a free entree for signing up!).
