For those interested in taking advantage of these deals, it’s important to note they are available at participating restaurants. While the vast majority of the restaurants do participate, there could be some which don’t for various reasons. The best course of action to take is to call the restaurant directly to confirm they are participating. It’s also important to note different restaurants may require different forms of ID to prove you qualify to get the deal. Again, contacting the restaurant directly will help ensure you bring the proper ID for the free meal or appetizer.
