Five Awesome Black Friday Restaurant Deals

Red Lobster Black Friday restaurant deals

After all the food you plan on eating Thanksgiving day, you don’t care about Black Friday restaurant deals, right? The last thing you need is more food, right? You can barely get your pants back on. No, scratch that; you’re in leggings and a tunic because they stretch – pants don’t. I get it. I get the overwhelming desire to stuff so much food in your face on Thanksgiving that you never want to think about food again, but Black Friday shopping takes some energy out of you. By my calculations, you’ll go to bed happy and full Thanksgiving night and rise at the crack of dawn to shop on Friday morning pretty hungry (because another 500 calories is totally necessary at this point after the million you had the day before).

You don’t have to believe me now. Scoff. Hate; say what you want to say, but I think that these Black Friday restaurant deals are going to be more appealing to you while you shop than you might think. After all, it takes a lot of energy and burns a lot of calories to race with a purpose around a store without killing anyone, losing your patience or knocking down a display. That’s calorie-burning cardio right there, people; you’ll need to fuel up. That’s why we think you might just want to take advantage of some of these Black Friday restaurant deals after all.

Buca di Beppo

If you’re shopping near one of these famous pasta stops, you’re going to want to know just how much you can get for your buck. Buca di Beppo is offering some of the most impressive Black Friday restaurant deals around right now, with discounts on certain meals as well as a chance to register for the Buca di Beppo eClub before you shop. It takes all of 30 seconds to register, but you’ll end up with a great fee plate of bucannoli, which is amazing. We like free food, and you’re going to love free food when it comes to shopping in the middle of Black Friday sales. There’s always time to shop and let the next deal wait with one of these Black Friday restaurant deals.

Red Lobster

Admittedly, seafood is a favorite indulgence of mine. We regularly visit the fresh seafood station at our supermarket for the fresh catch of the day, the amazing shrimp or the crab legs so that we can have a decadent dinner. We are suckers for seafood. That’s why this seafood restaurant is offering great Black Friday restaurant deals to anyone who wants to come in and do a little refueling in the midst of their holiday shopping this Black Friday. For one day only, you can choose between a free appetizer or a free dessert. All you have to do is sign up for the Fresh Catch Club online before the big shopping day and you will be able to order something free of charge, which is always nice.

Carl’s Jr.

I get it; sometimes you’re in the midst of a shopping spree and cannot be stopped or slowed down enough to stop for an actual meal (and what I like to think is a well-deserved cocktail) so you want to something a little faster and a little more convenient. I don’t know if Carl’s Jr. offers anything healthy, but I do know that it’s got to be healthier than the cake pop you’re eyeing at Starbucks when you stop for a beverage. The Carl’s Jr. Black Friday restaurant deal includes a coupon for $1 off a Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger Combo as well as a peach papaya green sweetened iced tea. That’s a lot of food for nothing and for a $1 off, so we think you might just want to take advantage of this Black Friday restaurant deal.

TGI Fridays

Aptly named for a shopping day such as Black Friday, there is every good reason to stop here on this special shopping day. To get this Black Friday restaurant deal, you’re going to need to sign up for the TGI Fridays Stripes club membership. That entitles you to a free dessert or appetizer on Black Friday. Additionally, there is a coupon that allows you to ‘skip the line,’ which is probably going to come in very handy on a day like Black Friday. What’s even better is that this is a deal you can get anytime you want; it’s not just a Black Friday restaurant deal.

Stevi B’s Pizza Buffet

There’s nothing like pizza when you are starving, exhausted and feeling like you need to recharge. To enjoy the Black Friday restaurant deals here, all you have to do is go into the store and order a pizza and immediately receive a 10% coupon to use with your meal. That’s big savings on a big savings day, which is something we all appreciate when it comes to shopping for discounted Christmas gifts on the biggest shopping day of the year.
