First responders, listen up: Hooters wants to let you know how much it appreciates your everyday heroism.

So, you can head to your favorite location and snag a free meal this weekend — just by showing your ID or arriving in uniform.

Because what better way to say thanks than a steaming plate of Hooters food?

Hooters Is Celebrating National First Responders Day

If you’re an active EMT, paramedic, firefighter or police officer, you can get free food at Hooters this Saturday, Oct. 28, just by showing your ID or arriving in uniform. No purchase is necessary.

Choose from the following menu options:

  • Buffalo chicken salad
  • Buffalo chicken sandwich
  • Hooters burger
  • 10-piece traditional wings (of course)
  • 10-piece boneless wings

I’m not nearly cool enough to be a first responder, but if I could take advantage of the deal, I’d obviously go with the wings. Hooters is famous for them for a reason!

The deal is part of Hooters’ support of National First Responders Day, which, shockingly, doesn’t yet exist. You can, however, read more about the movement to create this much-needed celebratory day — and sign the petition.

Meanwhile, grab all of your favorite first responders and head down to Hooters for some free eats. You deserve it!

Remember, this deal may vary by location, so you may want to call your local Hooters before stopping by for your freebie.
