Olive Garden has brought back its famous Buy One Take One offer — its best deal, in our opinion.

But this time around, the Italian restaurant chain has competition. We’ve found several major restaurants that are currently offering an entire entree for free with a purchase.

Before you run out the door, though, we suggest calling ahead to locations in your area to confirm they are participating in these offers.

Boston Market

If you buy an individual meal and a drink at Boston Market, you can get a second individual meal for free. Just note you’ll need the coupon on Boston Market’s website or promo code 38268.

You can redeem this offer in restaurants or when ordering online. The offer expires June 12.

Visit Boston Market’s locations webpage to search for one near you.

Carrabba’s Italian Grill

Not to be outdone by Olive Garden, this Italian restaurant chain is offering a free lunch entree with the purchase of one. You select both entrees from a lunch specials menu.

This offer ends today, though. So if you’re near a Carrabba’s and able to eat out for lunch today, you’re in luck. This special does require you to dine in.

Visit Carrabba’s locations webpage to find one near you. But this special isn’t available at airport locations or the Kirby or Woodway locations in Houston.

Olive Garden

As its name suggests, the Buy One Take One offer involves two entrees for the price of one, with the freebie being a take-home entree.

Here’s Olive Garden’s explanation:

“With Buy One Take One, enjoy one favorite with us, including endless soup or salad and breadsticks. Plus a second entree to take home for free.”

The entrees available through this promotion start at $12.99 and are listed on Olive Garden’s Buy One Take One webpage. The promotion itself is available for a limited time.

Visit Olive Garden’s locations page to search for one near you.

Rubio’s Coastal Grill

If you buy one entree, you can get a second entree for free. Just note you’ll need to present the coupon available on Rubio’s website, and the offer expires June 9.

Visit Rubio’s website to search for one near you.
