We love Black Friday deals at Krazy Coupon Lady, but while you’re getting all your bargains and checking out all the Black Friday sales, you should fuel up with free food and discounts from your favorite restaurants. As a food holiday, Black Friday ranks pretty high on our list!

Although Black Friday isn’t here just yet, it’ll be here before you know it. Until restaurants release their Black Friday food deals for 2023, all we can do is project what we’ll see this year based on what we found in 2022. Don’t worry, the minute the Black Friday food deals start dropping, we’ll start sharing them right here.

Of course, the best way to know if you’re getting the best Black Friday deal (and food deal) is by downloading the Krazy Coupon Lady app.
