There’s nothing in the world we love more than a good national food or drink day. Pi (and pie) day, Slurpee day, ice cream day, you name it. If it’s a food/drink day, I’ll be there, in line, waiting with the rest of the foodies of the world who can’t pass up a good deal. Luckily for us, July 13th (aka, TODAY!) is National French Fry day, and several fry-selling establishments are celebrating accordingly.

Holidays celebrating a nationally beloved food (that ironically was invented outside of the U.S.) are great and all — but what we’re really here for is the free food. Here are several deals you can take advantage of today to celebrate your love of fried potato. Go forth and fry!


Veritable American icon McDonald’s is offering free medium fries with the purchase of any large sandwich, but you have to download their app first. They’re offering free medium fries with any purchase on Fridays as well —also through the app. Both deals are running until July 24.


Though known for their pancakes, IHOP is also in on that French fry game. Their fry deal is also a particularly impressive one. You can get free, unlimited season French fries refills when you buy a burger. Yep, you read that right: unlimited fries. This deal is good through July 31.

Frite Street

Attention Chicago Gigglers: fry dive Frite Street is offering free fries today (July 13), while supplies last.

Ground Round

According to Time, Ground Round, a chain with locations in states like North Dakota, Kansas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, is offering a complimentary basket of fries–one basket per table–in honor of the fry holiday. Dine-in customers only!


National chain BurgerFi is also offering free fries with the purchase of the CEO burger. One day only.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to bury myself in a vat of free fries. Happy fry-eating, all!
