Though almost nothing is open on Christmas Day, the few spots that are open understand you're out and about on a day when you'd probably rather be hanging with friends and family or lounging on the couch doing nothing at all but trying to figure out if you've ever watched A Christmas Story from start to finish.

Thankfully, there are some restaurants open on Christmas. Many of those places there have special deals, like offers for a free burger at Burger King or a totally free coffee at Cumberland Farms.

Here's a look at the best food deals available on Christmas.
