The 10 Best Chain Restaurant All-You-Can-Eat Deals


If there are four words that American diners love hearing more than any others, they would most likely be "all you can eat." The right to eat until we burst is, at this point, basically enshrined in the Constitution, and heaven forbid you try to take our plates away before we’re finished. Thankfully, lots of chain restaurants have gotten the memo and will keep serving you food (or let you return to the buffet or salad bar) until you say when. From unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks to more than 20 varieties of unlimited pizza, we’ve rounded up 10 of the top chain all-you-can-eat deals.
