Perhaps because no one else in the family wants to cook, Mother’s Day has become the most popular day of the year for Americans to eat out. Nearly 40 percent of Americans plan to go out to celebrate the holiday on Sunday, according to a report from the National Restaurant Association.
Of those, more than 60 percent will choose a fast casual restaurant. In an effort to attract families, many restaurants are offering promotions that allow moms to get all or part of their meal for free.
Here’s a roundup of some of the best:
