fourth of july foodLike Memorial Day and Labor Day, the Fourth of July tends to be one of those summer holidays we spend slaving over a grill. Sure, who doesn't love burgers and dogs galore? But seriously, there's no shame in celebrating out and about! In fact, there are lots of festive Independence Day deals going on at restaurants all over the country.
