Black Friday is a stressful day for anyone brave enough to venture out into the storm of shoppers. It’s a full-contact, elbows out kind of experience — especially if you want to get the deal of a century on all of your holiday gifts. Between muscling your way through a crowd of tired, angry shoppers for a 90-inch flat screen TV and arm wrestling against an octogenarian for a brand new Kindle Fire, you’ll need a way to let off a little steam and recharge your batteries.
Lucky for you, you can refuel on the cheap by taking advantage of some killer food deals. That’s right, it’s not just the big box stores offering deals today, it’s also the restaurants. Take a look below for some of the best Black Friday food and drink deals around the country.
