Most seniors enjoy the experience of dining out at a wide variety of restaurants. The price of even fast-food meals has skyrocketed in recent years, however. Fortunately, most restaurants around the U.S. offer discounts to seniors citizens in one way or another. Senior discounts typically range between ten and fifteen percent, which helps create savings that adds up fast.
This is especially true for seniors who dine out frequently, such as once a week or even twice a month. Senior meal discounts come in all shapes and sizes as well. For example, some restaurants offer percentage or rate-based discounts menu-wide, while some have select menu items available at lower prices for qualified senior diners. Other restaurants offer low-price meals for seniors during certain hours each day, or on specific days every week.
When looking for senior citizen discounts fast food restaurants are popular choices. Are you a fan of the Filet-O-Fish and hot coffee? The McDonald’s senior discount might be your favorite option for a low-priced local lunch with friends. Are you a fan of thick, fluffy pancakes in the morning? The iHop senior discount helps you start your perfect day at affordable prices. Fast food chains across the country such as Burger King, Taco Bell, Chick-fil-a, KFC, Wendy’s and Arby’s all offer their own version of senior pricing.
Senior discounts are applied to tasty coffee and dessert-type locations as well. Dunkin’ (formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts) and Ben & Jerry’s each have their own senior menus or senior pricing policies. Pizza restaurants such as Pizza Hut, Papa John’s and many more also give generous discounts for senior pizza nights or during certain hours each day. This is also true for fast-food sit-down combo restaurants such as Subway.
Some of the most enjoyable moments for seniors are experienced at sit-down dining establishments, while sharing a meal with family or friends. These types of dining establishments are often expensive, until your senior discount is applied!
Applebee’s is known as an overall family restaurant but senior menu pricing applies in most locations. Bubba Gump is a seafood lover’s delight but even this specialty restaurant has its own senior discount policies. Olive Garden is one of the most popular restaurants in the U.S. today. Olive Garden meals range from large to small (and bottomless!) but are all affordable when senior discounts are applied.

Please note: The senior discount age might be different from location to location and state to state. Be certain to inquire about senior menu prices before ordering your meal. Doing so helps ensure you enjoy your favorite meals at the lowest prices each and every time.
