Denny's, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, Buca di Beppo and Whataburger are some of the restaurants that offer free birthday dinners, as of 2015. For patrons who show valid ID to verify birthdates, Denny's serves birthday Grand Slam meals of pancakes, eggs, bacon and sausage, free of charge. Patrons who join Club Baja are entitled to claim the free birthday burrito offer at Baja Fresh Mexican Grill.
As a condition of eligibility for free meals, many restaurants ask patrons to sign up with email addresses for ongoing notifications regarding specials and exclusive offers. Subject to the website-posted terms of agreement, Black Angus Steakhouse offers one free steak dinner for each patron who signs up for the Black Angus Prime Club. Customers must be at least 16 years old, must present valid ID before ordering and must purchase a second adult meal of equal value to claim the offer.
Some restaurants offer free birthday appetizers, desserts or drinks as accompaniment to meals. To claim other free birthday offers, visit the Cheesecake Factory for a free cup of ice cream, or dine at the Lone Star Steakhouse as an E-Club member, and enjoy a free appetizer. Sign up for Red Lobster's Fresh Catch Club to receive a birthday coupon offer, such as a menu discount or a free dessert or appetizer.
