Fridays are always exciting — but they're even better when they land on a holiday. Believe it or not, Friday, Nov. 16 is National Fast Food Day, which means you have another excuse to swap your meal prep for a discounted burger. If that seems appealing to you — which, c'mon, I'm sure it does — then you should probably know about the National Fast Food Day 2018 deals that are happening at restaurants near you. Between McDonald's, Wendy's, Hardee's, and more, fast-food havens are giving customers first-class treatment in honor of the special occasion.

Once you start exploring the fast-food deals that are currently taking place in your area, you might notice one thing. Some of these deals last longer than one day, while others were made to honor National Fast Food Day, specifically. Either way, a discount is a discount — so stop by your go-to spot for a cheap burger and fries. Some companies require that you use their mobile apps to score the deals, while others urge you to visit their restaurants. With that being said, get your phone ready and start mapping out your National Fast Food Day meals. There's something tasty on sale for any time of the day, so get hungry (or thirsty... hey, Dunkin').

If you're using McDonald's mobile app, you can visit the restaurant on Nov. 16 and get a small or medium order of fries for only $1, per Delish. Apparently, the deal is exclusive to those using the app — so go ahead and download it.

Chick-fil-A's latest deal was announced on Nov. 13, and it'll help you land a free Chick-fil-A sandwich when you place an order through DoorDash. All you have to do is order a meal after 10:30 a.m. local time and use the code CFADELIVERY. As long as your order costs a minimum of $5, you'll get a free sandwich. Plus, you have until Nov. 20 to make your order and score your free snack. Now that's how you celebrate National Fast Food Day.

If you're craving a burger instead of chicken tenders, head to Sonic. The company is currently offering its new Quarter Pound Double Stack Cheeseburger with medium tots for only $2.99 (plus tax). When you think about it, that's probably less than what you'd typically spend on a cup of coffee.

If you're craving a lunchtime pick-me-up, head to Dunkin' Donuts for a free sample of its Caramel Flavored Iced Latte on Nov. 16. The sampling began at 10 a.m. local time and will take place until 2 p.m. local time — so go ahead and give the new beverage a taste. If you miss out on the free samples on Nov. 16, you can head to Dunkin' during the same time frame on Nov. 17 to try its White Chocolate Flavored Iced Latte.

Those of you who use Wendy's mobile app are in luck. According to Delish, anyone who uses the app on National Fast Food Day can get a free Junior Bacon Cheeseburger with their purchase. Lunch for you and a friend? I think so.

For three days starting on Friday, Nov. 16, customers can visit Jack in the Box and get a free order of medium curly fries when they buy a large Coke Freestyle beverage, according to an email provided to Elite Daily. However, they'll need to sign up for Jack in the Box's mailing list on the company's website to receive the discount.

As you can see, you have plenty of opportunities to take advantage of National Fast Food Day. Whether you're stopping by Dunkin' for an afternoon coffee or scoring a free order of fries at McDonald's, your wallet (and stomach) will thank you.
