Free is our favorite four-letter word and since it's National French Fry Day, several local restaurants throughout Shreveport-Bossier City are giving away free french fries!

According to the experts at NationalDayCalendar.com, the phrase 'french fried potatoes' was first in print in English in 1856. It appeared in Cookery for Maids of All Work written by Eliza Warren. Believe it or not, if you follow the link for the book, you can still buy it on Amazon! Since then, I think we can all agree, that French fries pretty much took over the world!

So how do you celebrate National French Fry Day? By eating French fries, of course! Now, you could buy your fries, but why do that when so many restaurants in our area are offering them for free in honor of the holiday?

McDonald's - Get a free large order of fries at McDonald's today when you use or download their app and sign up for their loyalty program.

Wendy's - Wendy's will give you free fries with any purchase made through their app.

Burger King - If you're a Burger King rewards member, they'll give you free chicken fries if you spend at least $3.00.

Heinz and Door Dash - When you make a purchase of at least $15.00 that includes fries via Door Dash today, they'll take $5.70 off of your bill. Get it? Heinz 57? (FYI, this only works at participating restaurants so you'll want to check that before completing your order.)
