Whether you like your fries waffle-style, with ketchup, or plain, Wednesday is your day. It’s “National French Fry Day.”

French fries are served all over the world, but they are one of the most popular foods in the US. Americans eat about 2 million tons of French fries every year, according to some estimates, with McDonald’s selling more than one out of every three fries.

According to National Geographic, fries were originally invented in Belgium. American soldiers in World War I apparently mislabeled the food eaten by French-speaking Belgium troops.

Here are a few deals to take advantage of tonight – and this month:

McDonald’s: You can receive a free medium order of fries if you purchase a large sandwich through the McDonald’s app. This deal runs through July 24.

Burger King: For $10 you can get two Whopper meals, which includes the sandwiches, drinks and fries. This deal lasts until July 15.

IHOP: If you buy a burger, you will get unlimited, free fries. Take advantage of this deal between now and July 31.
