National French Fry Day Is Coming — & Yes, You Can Snag Free Fries

Despite their name, French fries are an American staple. The starchy side pairs perfectly with just about every meal. But on Saturday, the salty treat will be taking its well-deserved spot in the sun. July 13 is National French Fry Day and you can snag some spuds on the cheap. Why National French FRY day takes place on Saturday and not FRIday is beyond us but we won’t complain about a day dedicated to fries. So which restaurants will be serving up the sweetest deals?

Here are all the chains offering free (or steeply discounted) fries.

Burger 21

Burger 21 — best known for their high-quality, Angus beef burgers — will be selling limited-edition, “kicked-up” buffalo ranch fries this Saturday. But if you want to try these bad boys, you’ll have to act fast: they will be available for one day only!


On July 13, a regular order of hand-cut fries will be just $1. To get the deal, simply mention the special while ordering. Note: This offer will only be available in-stores.

Burger King

Burger King is also selling French fries for $1 when customers use “Mobile Order & Pay” on the BK app.

Carl’s Jr.

What’s better than free fries? Getting free fries and a free drink! And if you happen to be ordering a western bacon  cheeseburger from Carl’s Jr. this weekend, you can do just that. Sign up for the company’s email list to get the coupon.


Checkers is giving away a free large fry with any purchase when you sign up for emails.

Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks

In honor of National French Fry Day, Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks is giving customers the chance to save $5 off any purchase of $25 or more. Simply present this coupon and use it for a side of fries… or whatever your heart desires.


We can’t discuss “Fry Day” without discussing McDonald’s. The fast-food chain is known for the salty, oily and oh-so-addictive spuds. So, of course, they are getting in on the celebration. On July 13, you’ll get a free medium fry when you order on Uber Eats. Just make sure to add the fries to your order, and use the promo code.


Sheetz is giving away free fries. (Yes, free!) In order to get said fries, customers simply need to order through the Sheetz app. Easy peasy, right?!

Sonny’s BBQ

If there’s one word we like more than “free” it’s “all-you-can-eat,” especially when it comes to fries, and on July 13, Sonny’s will be serving up bottomless crinkle cuts. To score this deal, simply order a side of fries.

TGI Fridays

Thank God it’s Friday, especially this week, because TGI Fridays is celebrating National French Fry Day a day early. You’ll get a free refill of their signature fries when you purchase any burger on July 12.
