The closest Long John Silver's to Hoboken is in Brick, but if you're one of the many who go down the shore for the weekend, it's worth taking a trip over to the location if you're in the mood for some free food.
In celebration of their 45 years in business, Long John Silver's is giving away free fish and fries on Saturday, August 2, from 11am to 3pm at all of their participating locations. They frequently have promotions for one reason or another, with the last free fish and chips promotion being on June 28 when they gave out free food to more than 500,000 guests. You can get the one piece of crispy golden fish and serving of fries whether you dine in or carry out, but you cannot get the food through the drive thru. No coupon is necessary, however, they do have a “Fish Bowl Email Club” where you can sign up and get coupons and notices of special offers for their restaurant via text and email.
The CEO of Long John Silver's, Mike Kern, said, “America’s Fish Fry is a continuation of our efforts to encourage Americans to eat more seafood. Our menu has evolved over the last two years to include items that appeal to almost anyone, and we’re proud of that evolution. At the same time, we want to celebrate the classic seafood that put us on the map. Our crispy, golden fish offers a unique taste that our guests have come to love and crave. If you missed the first Free Fish & Fries event, this Saturday provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the taste you love free of charge.”
