FREE Burgers for National Burger Day!
Celebrate National Burger Day, May 28, 2020! May 28 is National Burger Day, aka National Hamburger Day, and the lesser-known National Brisket Day. It’s also considered International Burger Day. Because, nothing tastes better than free! National Burger Day celebrates the scrumptious, beefy goodness that is a hamburger. For example, everyone has their favorite Burger joint, but are they giving away freebies? If not, then they should! You could ask them to, or tell us and we’ll ask!
So, if you’re wondering who has specials for National Burger Day, here’s the biggest list on the internet!
Top Restaurants offering Free Hamburgers for National Burger Day
Offers.com surveyed 1,200 consumers to find out their favorite spot to grab a burger. Five Guys was the top pick with 28%, followed by In-N-Out and Wendy’s with 17% each, McDonald’s with 15% and 14% for Burger King.
Getting free burgers should be an everyday thing, in my opinion. That’s why we have a huge list of Birthday Freebies. Because, you can sign up for the restaurant’s rewards program and get freebies! They may offer freebies immediately when you sign up, and some offer free food on your birthday. Still others offer freebies on your anniversary of signing up.

Checker’s / Rally’s
Checkers & Rally’s restaurants were born out of the idea that a bland and flavorless burger was downright bad and that Americans everywhere deserved a better tasting burger — one that was unexpectedly bold, made-to-order and priced at a value that was hard to beat. Founded by experienced foodies with a renegade spirit, both the Checkers & Rally’s unique double drive-thru concept, with its over-the-top checkerboard squares, chrome styling, red neon signs and of course, the food, was an instant hit. In 1999 these two great flavors would unite bringing their passion for big flavor together. This successful merger would make Checkers & Rally’s the largest double drive thru restaurant chain in the country. Today Checkers & Rally’s have more than 800 restaurants open in the United States.

Hence arose the origin of our famous slogan, “In Sight, It Must Be Right.” Follow on Facebook.
