Fast food is a guilty pleasure for millions of us — it’s ready fast, priced right and tastes heavenly.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can make your next fast-food visit even better simply by downloading the app of your favorite restaurant.

All of the following apps offer you free food. Keep in mind that offers do not always apply to all locations, and they change from time to time. In fact, it’s a good idea to keep your eyes peeled for new deals, as they emerge all the time.

But as of publication, these nine apps give you something free immediately, or soon after you download them.

If you notice any freebies we missed for people who sign up for a restaurant app, please let us know below in the comments, or tell us about it on our Facebook page.

Turkey ranch Swiss or chicken pesto? Sign up for the Quizno’s app, and you will receive a free 4-inch sub. Small catch here, though: To get the sub, you must pay for chips and a fountain drink.
