Tax Day is an intentionally frustrating time. Though most people are probably done with their taxes and the frustration by the time Tax Day rolls around, it is nonetheless the day when taxes are due and when we celebrate the headaches caused by the process.

As part of the routine we go through annually, restaurants around the country offer little perks to ease your way through the day. Chain restaurants offer discounts on meals, free coffee, and even perks on beer or cocktails to help you forget about the whole process until your start to panic about it again next year. On Tax Day this year, you’ll find deals from places like Hooters, Pollo Campero, Mountain Mike’s Pizza, and many other restaurants.

Here are all the best food deals you’ll find on Tax Day.
