Happy Halloween! If you’ve been thinking that today is only about scoring free candy — time to dream bigger. With Halloween comes a whole range of food and drink deals that’ll get you and your crew fed on the cheap. As we inch closer to winter, it’s time to pack on some extra heft to help keep us warm, and there is no better way to do that than with loads of candy, cheap booze, and lots of food.
So get out there, wear your costume, and score those deals! It’s insanely easy.
For this roundup, we went ahead and excluded all of the deals exclusive to children because — I mean who cares about them, right? Too long have children been trying to claim Halloween as their own, we won’t stand for it. Here are all the best food deals to reward you for putting the effort into crafting a sick costume.
Applebee’s — Applebees won’t give you anything for dressing up in costume, but you can order a $1 Vampire cocktail, which consists of rum, cherry, and floating vampire teeth. Gimmicky? Yes. But it’ a $1 cocktail, so we’re with it.
Baskin-Robbins — You don’t even need to show up in costume for this one, Baskin-Robbins is just digging on Halloween because it lands on the 31st and that’s how many flavors they have. Whatever, we’ll take it. Single scoops are just $1.70 all day long and repack courts are being sold two for $7.99.
Ice cream in October, it’s a Halloween miracle.
Carvel — Carvel has special Halloween themed desserts, like the Slime Shake, complete with edible slime!

Chili’s — Grab a FANGtastic ‘Rita for $5 at Chili’s. It’s not as good as Applebee’s deal, but with Lunazul tequila, Cointreau, fresh sour, and blood orange syrup this one makes for a delicious cocktail.
Chipotle — Roll up to Chipotle in costume and you’ll get a burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or taco order for just $4. Just make sure you show up after 3 p.m. For some reason anytime before then is just not Halloween in Chipotle’s eyes.
If you’re feeling extra festive, post a TikTok video of yourself before and after you suit up in your costume and use the hashtag #Boorito for a chance to be one of five winners to receive free burritos for a year.
The Cheesecake Factory — When you place an order of $30 or more from the Cheesecake Factory through DoorDash, you’ll receive a free slice of cheesecake. Just use the code TREEATORTREAT at checkout.
El Vaquero — Show up in costume and receive 20% off your tab!
Insomnia Cookies — Head to Insomnia in costume and you’ll receive a free cookie.
Just Salad — This one is unusually specific, but whatever — Dress as a salad and you can receive a free salad from Just Salad.
That. Is. Cannibalism.
Krispy Kreme — Krispy Kreme is offering out free donuts to anyone who shows up in costume. No purchase necessary, just walk near a Krispy Kreme, look for an employee, and grab a free donut. That’s better than candy!
