Need something quick and easy for supper Halloween night? If you are thinking of going out, you may be happy to know that Wichita has plenty of Halloween restaurant specials – and other bargains – that should help make up for all that cash you spent on candy!
There’s no bad luck for bargain hunters on Halloween, just lots of restaurant specials and “monster” savings at various other businesses.
Some of these deals are for the whole month, others last only a day. Make sure to follow the links for information on times and locations. Some of the offers in the past required a costume.
While this list is focused on food freebies, there are sometimes non-food deals. Be sure not to miss family-friendly Halloween fun here in our Wichita trick-or-treat and fall fun roundup.
Halloween Food Freebies and Deals
We will update and add to this list all month, so keep checking in. And don’t forget to search your favorite “local haunts” for more deals, as promos are not always just limited to national chains.
NOTE: Not all locations offer the same national promotions. As a result, price and participation may vary. It’s always wise to call ahead for verification in your area. We strive to keep up with limited-time offers, but deals may end without notice.
Get two entrees and an appetizer for just $22. Go here and select “order” to see your options. Enjoy your dinner with one of the chain’s $5 Spooky Sips: Dracula’s Juice, a wildberry creation of a Patron Silver margarita and Bacardi Superior daiquiri, or the Tipsy Zombie, made with Bacardi Superior, passion fruit, pineapple, cherry, lime and a gummy brain topped with melon liqueur.
