There's nothing quite like a piping hot, melt-in-your-mouth biscuit smothered with your choice of jam, gravy, honey, or butter — and luckily, there's an unofficial food holiday to help celebrate your love of buttery carbs. Friday, May 14 officially marks National Buttermilk Biscuit Day, and a number of your favorite biscuit retailers are ringing in the holiday with promotions and giveaways. You'll want to check out these National Buttermilk Biscuit Day 2021 deals for May 14 to score some savory savings.

If you decide to visit one of these biscuit retailers in-person to take advantage of the May 14 deals, remember to keep in mind the CDC's most updated guidance for social distancing and masking. From freebies to stocking your pantry with bites for a year, there are plenty of deals to take advantage of. Without further ado, here are some of the best National Buttermilk Biscuit Day deals that are going on this year.

Red Lobster

The home of the fan-beloved Cheddar Bay Biscuits is giving fans the opportunity to score free cheesy biscuits as well as other offerings off the menu, including crab legs and Main lobster tail add-ons. To potentially win one of 500 free rewards, you can enter the "Big Cheese" Biscuit sweepstakes by downloading the rewards app if you haven't already and completing a member profile. Both existing and new members will automatically get an entry if they submit it in their My Rewards wallet by June 4. You can score extra entries with every dine-in, delivery, or to-go order (up to two per day) made at a Red Lobster restaurant or online through May 28.

In addition, one Gold or Platinum Red Lobster Rewards member will win the status of Chief Biscuit Officer, which includes $1,000 in Red Lobster gift cards, the chance to weigh in on future dishes, and, of course, extra Cheddar Bay Biscuits.


The fast food chain is honoring National Buttermilk Biscuit Day this year with a tongue-in-cheek reference to a popular meme. Because it's a ~struggle~ to chow down on Popeyes' biscuits without a beverage in hand, Popeyes is giving customers a free biscuit and a small drink with any $5 purchase through the app or online. To take advantage of the deal, all you have to do is use the promo code "#SoDry" when you're checking out.
