As Valentine’s Day inches closer, love is in the air, and fast food chains are taking advantage of it. And it seems that this Valentine’s Day will be celebrated with a variety of fast food specials. From heart-shaped pizzas to chocolate-covered everything, these chains are pulling out all the stops to win over your hearts this February. So, whatever your plans may be this Valentine’s Day, there’s a good chance your favorite fast food chain has you covered.
Chick-fil-A is offering a heart-shaped tray with chicken or treats, California Pizza Kitchen has a three-course menu, Papa John’s is giving you a heart-shaped pizza, Krispy Kreme is serving up eight donuts in four flavors in a box, while The Fresh Market has ten different meals, while Dairy Queen offers ice cream.
Whether you and your partner are fans of pizza, or you like a whole meal, or just have a sweet tooth, there are several fantastic options to celebrate your Valentine’s Day perfectly!
Chick-fil-a is my fast-food restaurant of choice, so I was excited to see what they had planned for Valentine’s Day. Unlike some of the other restaurants, they’re not offering any discounts or freebies. However, they are giving away a special heart-shaped tray!
This offer started on January 23. and will last until February 25., so you have plenty more time to decide what to give to your loved one AND yourself.
The portions and the food you can choose for your heart-shaped tray are versatile – from chicken to treats, so you can order 30-count Chick-fil-A Nuggets, 10-count Chick-n-Mins, 6-count Chocolate Chunk Cookies or 12 Chocolate Fudge Brownie halves!
California Pizza Kitchen
California Pizza Kitchen always has such great specials – and something for everyone.
This year, they’re offering Valentine’s Day Sweet Deal For Two, which lasts only from February 9 to February 14. You can choose a package with an appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert; plus, you will get your favorite pizza in the shape of a heart!
But there’s more! If you decide to dine in during this period, you will also get a Bonus Card when you buy a Sweet Deal Package that you can use on the following visit.
If you are extra romantic, you can also send an especially-designed eGift Card to your loved one who loves pizza, preferably! But who doesn’t?
Sometimes, you just need an ordinary pizza! So, why not order one in the shape of a heart?
If pizza is your style, you can also try Papa John’s since it also has a delicious Valentine’s Day special. But note that this is only for the fans of a thin crust. For love at first bite, this fast-food restaurant has decided to offer only one choice, and it’s a 1-topping thin crust heart-shaped pizza reserved only for lovers.
And since it is in this beautiful shape, it would be a shame to slice it, so you and your partner should just figure out how to split it. I am sure it would be super special.
Krispy Kreme Donuts
Krispy Kreme is known for its melt-in-your-mouth donuts, and on Valentine’s Day, the chain offers limited-edition doughnuts to get you in the mood for love. They have a range of donuts, from heart-shaped glazed donuts with red and pink sprinkles to luscious chocolate glazed ones with a hint of strawberry.
The four differently glazed and equally delicious types of donuts – chocolate chip caramel, double chocolate kiss, strawberry dream, and I pick you donut with buttercream and icing rose – will be packed in a perfect sweet box, two of each, so both you and your loved one can enjoy them fully!
These special edition donuts are only available for a limited time, so if you love donuts, you have to make sure you check out Krispy Kreme until Valentine’s Day.
The Fresh Market
For those couples who would love a whole meal prepared freshly for their Valentine’s Day lunch or dinner, The Fresh Market is a perfect choice this year!
They’ve already started taking orders, so you’d better hurry up because the ordering ends on February 13, while in-store pick-up is only available from February 10 to February 14.
So, what’s on the menu? Well, they offer no less than 10 different meals, from filet mignon, lobster tail, or crab cake meal, to three different Valentine’s Day brunches that are sure to wow your sweetheart.
Although Dairy Queen already boasts several absolutely delicious Blizzard Cakes, including Oreo, Choco Brownie Xtreme, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, they also decided to release another one, especially for 2023 Valentine’s Day.So, if you are a fan of their cakes and ice creams, hurry up and order their Triple Truffle Blizzard Cake in a heart shape or their fantastic ice cream that includes truffles filled with fudge, peanut butter, and caramel, complemented by their world-famous soft serve and a delicious chocolate topping!
It’s no secret that Baskin Robbins loves Valentine’s Day. In fact, they have a whole slew of special offers and deals just for the occasion. This year, they are introducing a heart-shaped cake aptly named Crazy for You Cake!
But that’s not all. They’re also offering a range of sweet treats that are perfect for sharing with your loved ones.
Plus, there’s a fan-favorite Love Portion #31, a pink-hued ice cream made with raspberries and white chocolate; Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cone, and Waffle Bowl, made with scoops of this classic ice cream that’s been in their store for more than 25 years.
So whether you’re looking for a small token of appreciation or something more indulgent, Baskin Robbins has you covered.
Dunkin’ is one of everyone’s guilty pleasures, for sure. They always have great deals for Valentine’s Day, and 2023 is no different. In fact, they’re offering numerous heart-shaped donuts in the budget – Brownie Batter Donut or Cupid’s Choice Donut!
I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a pretty sweet deal. And if you’re not in the mood for donuts, they’ve also got a variety of other specials, like Cocoa Mocha Signature Latte, Strawberry Dragonfruit Dunkin’ Refresher, or a limited-edition of Dunkin’ Chocolates and Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Flavored Jelly Hearts.
So whether you’re looking to celebrate with sweets or liquid snacks, Dunkin’ has you covered. Just be sure to head in early because these deals are only available while supplies last!
At Hooters, they’re also gearing up for Valentine’s Day 2023 with some amazing specials planned for the occasion. However, lovers and couples are not quite welcome here! That’s right; they are organizing a ShredYourEx event, so everyone who is single or recovering from heartache is invited on some free wings!
Their famous chicken wings are always a popular choice, and they’ll be serving them in various delicious flavors.
In addition, guests can also get closure by destroying a picture of their ex to earn 10 free wings for any style with an in-store purchase of 10 wings of the same style.
And if you hurry up and scrap digital photos on their site before February 14, you will get a coupon to redeem in the restaurant on February 14.
Waffle House is another excellent option for those looking for a special deal for Valentine’s Day 2023. The chain’s Valentine’s Day tradition, which started in 2008, continues this year, with over 170 restaurants in 23 states organizing a perfect evening for all the couples in love who are in search of a romantic and delicious dinner!
As usual, the restaurants are decorating their places in Valentine’s theme beneath their recognizable yellow signs, so if you haven’t, hurry up, look up your location on the list, and make your reservation on time!

Heart-shaped pizzas seem to be a thing for every Valentine’s Day, so most of the pizza places out there have decided to include it in their offer, of course, for a limited period of time.
So, at Davanni’s, couples can enjoy a medium-thin crust pizza and treat themselves with $1 Brownies all day, while Bucca di Beppo has prepared an amazing Valentine Lasagna Lovefeast with small garlic bread, choice of small salad, entree, and dessert!

Lastly, My Pi continues its 50-year-old tradition, and on February 14 this year, it will be offering heart-shaped pizzas in honor of Valentine’s Day.
