Important Notes

Note that franchised restaurants are independently run, so discounts may vary. Just ask about that location’s senior discount before ordering. As one of our readers notes, senior discounts often don’t happen automatically; you might have to ask for them. So speak up!

Although this list is as up-to-date as possible, senior discounts are subject to change. Always ask about the current state of the discount to be sure. And don’t miss the rest of our senior discount guides for more savings on groceries, travel, movies and shopping.

    3. DEL TACO has always offered a discount for seniors, at least in Redding, Ca…however, I have to ask for the discount or it won’t happen

    4. Ronald Dumont says:

      By the way JackintheBox and Whataburger give Senior discounts also!

    5. Denny’s will only honor the 10% discount on the 55 + items on the menu, will not honor the discount on the regular menu. I found out today when I paid my check. So this should be changed on your page. I am in the Valdosta, Ga. area.
