Fourth of July Food Deals: Where To Get Discounts for the Holiday

The Fourth of July is about much more than grills and parks or burgers and hotdogs. (I mean, it’s literally about something else, but as far as the food is concerned, it’s about more than those summer staples.)

There are restaurants in every corner of the US serving up specials and deals that are tough to pass up. Even if you’re spending part of the day sweating over a grill, perfecting your locally-famous burger recipe, there are two more meals in the day. You’re going to find deals at familiar restaurants like IHOP, 7-Eleven, California Pizza Kitchen, Wendy’s, and more. 

To help you on your way to some great meals on the Fourth of July, here are the best food deals you’ll find for the holiday.
