On October 10, we told you about the “Scary Face Pancakes” Halloween Freebie for kids at IHOP for kids aged 12 and under. They can get a free Scary Face Pancake and design their own from 7 a.m. through 10 p.m.

Other restaurants also see the wisdom of offering treats on Halloween. Most offer up free food if you’re in costume, but will wisely be generous anyway if you’re not, but hey, get with the ‘spirit’ of the occasion.

National chains offering up free stuff at participating outlets, (you should call first to see if your store is part of the promotion.)

Delish.com lists restaurants offering free food or deals for those wearing Halloween costumes.

Participating Applebee’s offer “kids eat free” for costumed children. (yes, call for details and participation status). BTW; Applebee’s is owned by IHOP.

Baskin - Robbins is offering regular and kid-sized scoops for $1.50.

Visit Chipotle while dressed for Halloween, after 3 p.m. for deals on burritos, bowls, tacos and salads for as little as $3. And once again this year, to win FREE BOO-RITOS for a year, text BOORITO to 888222 by 10/31 to enter. Official rules: http://chipotle.com/boorito 

Outback Steakhouse offers kids a free “Dirt Cup” with purchase of a Joey Meal.

Sonic Drive-Ins offer 50-cent corn dogs all day on Halloween. No costume necessary, but, come on… it's Halloween!

7-Eleven has creepy candy, a ghostly Slurpee flavor and a $5 deal on whole pizzas for that fine dining experience you can only get at 7-Eleven.

While you’re thinking about Halloween, maybe you should consider getting some new toothbrushes. Just sayin’.
