Free Meals for Birthdays

(updated March 2013)

March is our birthday month here in our household – both mine and my husband’s birthdays are this month, in fact, just as my birthday is ending, his is beginning.  It’s a lot of fun to have someone to share birthdays with but the free food we get is even better.  Besides all of the family meals we get to enjoy together, we also enjoy eating at some of our favorite restaurants and only paying a portion of the full cost.  Here’s our small list of free birthday food restaurants:

  • Tucanos – 4801 North University Avenue, Provo – Churrasco-style eating.  We usually just get the full  Churrasco Lunch (going for dinner is just a little too expensive for us) but I’ve heard that some of the extras you can add are delicious.  Maybe one day we’ll try them.  Signing up for their Birthday Card gets you one free meal with the purchase of another meal.  Plus kids under 7 years eat free there so it can become a pretty inexpensive meal!
  • Happy Sumo – 4801 North University Avenue, Provo (right next to Tucanos) – We received $15 for my birthday to go towards a purchase.  Plus for March, VIP members get 15%  off of their online order by writing “VIP” in the comments section. You can also read about one experience we had, as well as check out this month’s VIP menu.
  • Texas Roadhouse – 1265 South State Street, Orem – We got a free appetizer or sidekick of ribs.  And we love their ribs!
  • Rodizio Grill – 749 West 100 North, American Fork – Churrasco-style eating.  This restaurant also offers a buy one meal, get one free meal deal.  We have never been to Rodizio but have heard it is pretty good.
  • Baskin-Robbins – One free scoop of ice cream!  Also, by signing up, you can get a discount on a birthday cake.
  • Cold Stone – A free creation with the purchase of another creation.
  • Benihana’s – 165 South West Temple, Salt Lake – Signing up gets you $30 towards your food for the month.
