Do Restaurants Accept EBT?

Some restaurants accept EBT. Locations that accept EBT should have a sign posted along with the logos of other credit and debit cards they accept. Nationwide chains, such as Burger King and Taco Bell, are the most likely restaurants to accept EBT.

EBT cards carry multiple types of government assistance accounts. For instance, many cards have both cash assistance and SNAP benefits. Cash assistance is allowed to be processed by restaurants; SNAP benefits are not. Cash assistance can be used on many goods and services other than food, so restaurants are a minor part of eligible establishments that may accept EBT.
