We spend most of our Halloween food energy focused on when and where we can get as much cheap candy as possible, but it’s important to remember to take advantage of restaurant food deals when they pop up, too! Life isn’t just about waking up at 6 am the day after Halloween and heading to the store for clearance candy, after all. If you want to make the most of your Halloween eats this year, check out some of the best deals and specials available at these chain restaurants.

For those of us who prefer liquor over licorice, there’s Applebee’s $1 Vampire cocktail, which is made with rum, strawberry, passion fruit, dragon fruit, and pineapple juice, and comes in a 10 oz mug that’s garnished with vampire fangs and a cherry. Just make sure to call ahead to make sure your location is honoring this spooky deal.
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
We don’t really associate Forest Gump with Halloween, but a deal’s a deal! Bubba Gump is hosting a Forest Gump cast look alike contest all month. Wear your costume, upload it to their Facebook page using the hashtag #FORESTGUMPLOOKALIKE, and you could win a $200, $100, or $50 gift card. On Halloween, kids can also get a free kid’s meal with the purchase of an adult entree, for the little ones who like shrimp more than candy.
Chili’s Margarita of the Month is the $5 Fangtastic ‘Rita, made with blanco tequila, Cointreau, blood orange liqueur, and sour mix. Order yourself one on Halloween, and bring along your kid – if you’re a Chili’s loyalty member, your child eats for free on October 31st with the purchase of a regular entree.
Show up in costume at your local Chipotle on October 31 after 3 PM, and you can get a burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or tacos for just $4. What a spooky-good discount!
Follow Dunkin’ on Instagram and read their Behind the Beans blog to find out when “The Dunkin’ Runner” will be making an appearance at one of seven East Coast stores, so you can meet them and get a free Halloween donut for your troubles.
This Halloween, kids eat free every day from 4-10PM with the purchase of one adult entree, and its the perfect time for them to try on of the chain’s spooky Addams Family Halloween menu specials, like Uncle Fester’s Chocolate Ice Scream Shake or Wednesday’s Web-Cakes.

Wendy’s is selling “Boo! Books” again this year. They cost a dollar and inside are five coupons for a free Jr. Frosty, making this quite the deal. Use them for yourself, hand them out to trick-or-treaters, but either way, don’t miss this deal.
