Presidents Day isn't just a Monday to celebrate presidents or a Monday preceded by a weekend full of mattress sales. 

It is also another day where you have to eat. Just like every other day, except that on Presidents Day, there are Presidents Day food deals to feast upon. On George Washington's birthday, restaurants like Wendy's, Popeyes, and Papa John's are honoring him and other US leaders with deals like free kids' meals and $1 bonus burgers. There were a lot of things those early presidents didn't see coming. 

Here are the best deals you'll find on Presidents' Day
