November 16th marks National Fast Food Day. You read that right: A day devoted solely to celebrating all the delicious “guilty pleasure” foods we can’t get enough of (but let’s be real, we’re NOT guilty about it).

If you’re looking to celebrate, go no further. We’ve got all the info you need on which chains are serving up free food. Check out the below list and get ready for a tasty day (and a good warm-up to Thanksgiving).


If you haven’t downloaded the McDonald’s app yet, now would be a great time. The free app has tons of info on all their deals celebrating National Fast Food Day. At the top of the list is the option to buy one, get one free. This applies to McGriddles or their McCafe beverages. So grab a friend and go!
