McDonald's: Free Fries and $1 Coffee

The french fries are arguably the best thing McDonald's offers, and you can get them free every Friday (Fry Day, get it?). Just make a purchase of $1 or more through the app on a Friday and you'll get a free medium order of fries. Plus, any-size hot or iced coffee is only $1 all day every day when you order in the app. Both deals go through Sept. 27.

Burger King: Steakhouse King

Burger King has brought back a popular burger: the Steakhouse King. It's available as a single or double and is topped with American cheese, crispy onions, bacon, mayo and steakhouse sauce. If that's not your style, the $3 snack box with a cheeseburger, 10-piece nuggets, medium fries and small drink is still available.

Pizza Hut Priazzo

Pizza Hut: $10 Large Pizza with up to 3 Toppings

While many pizza deals are for carryout or curbside only, Pizza Hut has a deal that's also available for delivery. For $10, you can get a large pizza with up to 3 toppings delivered straight to your door. That makes family pizza night cheaper and less of a hassle.

Domino's: Weeklong Carryout Deal

Domino's: $6 Mix-and-Match Deal

Domino's has been running the $6 mix-and-match deal for so long it's pretty much just a part of the regular menu now. You have to order two or more items to get the $6 price, and there's a lot to choose from: medium 2-topping pizzas, stuffed cheesy bread, chicken wings, pasta, salad, and desserts. The only catch is that it's for takeout only, but it's worth the trip.

Subway: BBQ Rib Sub

To piggyback on summer's barbecue flavors, Subway has introduced the BBQ rib sub. It's got a rib-shaped pork patty (think McRib) coated in sweet barbecue sauce and topped with lettuce, onions and pickles. Plus, you can still get two Footlongs for $5 each when you order through the app.

Sonic Drive-In Now

Sonic: $4 BBLT

BLTs with fresh summer tomatoes are a seasonal treat. At Sonic for a limited time, you can get a $4 BBLT. What is the extra B for? More bacon, naturally. Lots of crispy bacon is piled on a brioche bun with tomatoes, lettuce and mayo for a classic combo.

Del Taco

Del Taco: $1 Crispy Chicken Taco

Del Taco has added two crispy chicken tacos to its dollar menu lineup. Both include a fried chicken strip, lettuce and cheese in a flour tortilla, with either creamy ranch or creamy habanero sauce. You can also get the new crispy chicken strips in two other items: in a burrito with guac, veggies and creamy avocado caesar dressing, or in a box with fries.

Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme: Reese's Doughnuts

Three Reese's doughnuts have arrived at Krispy Kreme, and one of them will eventually become part of the regular menu. Customers will decide which doughnut stays by posting their reviews on social media. I'm rooting for the Reese's classic doughnut, filled with peanut butter cream and topped with chocolate icing and mini peanut butter chips, but how could any of them be bad?

Checkers/Rally's: $2 Chicken Bites and Fries Box

Checkers/Rally's has rolled out a great deal on a snack or small meal. For $2, you can get a box filled with white meat chicken bites and seasoned fries. It's the baby sibling to the box that comes with a half-pound of chicken bites.

Dunkin': $2 Ham and Cheese Rollups

The breakfast menu has expanded recently at Dunkin' to include inexpensive, easy to eat options. Ham and cheese rollups come two to an order for $2 and include ham and cheese rolled into a flour tortilla. For a dollar more, you can upgrade that ham to crispy bacon. Both are convenient for eating on the go.

Church's Chicken: Wild Berry Cobbler

Church's has debuted a new dessert: wild berry cobbler. It includes a sweet mix of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries along with a honey butter biscuit. And if that's not enough berries for you, you can also sip on a wild berry iced tea or wild berry lemonade for a limited time.

Quiznos: Cubano Sandwich

Quiznos is looking toward Florida for their latest sandwich inspiration. The Cubano is layered with sliced ham and turkey, Swiss cheese, pickles, and yellow mustard on pressed Cuban-style bread. Since the sandwich generally doesn't include toppings, it comes standard with double meat, making for a half-pound 8-inch sandwich.

Shaquille O'Neal, a board member at Papa John's, has developed a new pizza with his name on it: the Shaq-a-roni. The $12 extra large pizza is topped with extra cheese and extra pepperoni, then cut into extra big slices.
