We can all agree: Nuggets taste even better when they’re free. From now through March 31, the bite-sized bounty of five KFC Nuggets comes with any purchase of $10 or more.

But free delivery is its own compelling promise, whether it’s nuggets you’re after or a Party Bucket for the whole gang. Any day that there’s a March Madness game, basketball viewers can partake in whatever they want, delivered for no additional charge if they order on or the KFC app.

7-Eleven, Speedway, and Stripes

The popular convenience store chains are calling the special deal Basketball Bedlam, and though the prices aren’t exactly pathological, we get where they’re going with it. After all, where else can you get a whole pizza for $7? Customers of the brand’s 7NOW Delivery can enhance that meal with 10 mini tacos for $2.59, eight boneless wings for $3.49, or five bone-in wings for $5.99.

Red Robin

Keep tabs on a different kind of bracket at the beloved burger chain. Each week of March Madness sees a new star of its roster take to the court with a special $12 price that includes a bottomless side. From now until March 24, the spicy Scorpion Burger is on special. March 25-31, it’s the Whiskey River BBQ Burger, followed by the Smashed Avocado N’ Bacon Burger from April 1-7. The competition ends with the teriyaki-glazed, pineapple-topped Banzai Burger, on sale from April 8-14.

But hoops fans can’t live on beef alone. For those hosting a party of like-minded basketball lovers, the Big Red Box is a take-home wing bar that costs $49.99. The hulking box includes five pounds of bone-in chicken wings along with ranch, blue cheese, teriyaki, Buzz and Whisky River BBQ sauces—with carrot sticks on the side.

TGI Fridays

Got a busted bracket already? With so many teams competing, it’s bound to happen. But this fast-casual restaurant has a consolation prize. Any diner who shows their losing bracket is entitled to six free boneless wings with their choice of sauce, along with any food or nonalcoholic beverage purchase.

Not enough wings? On all men’s and women’s game days, the big brand is serving up 50-cent wings—either bone-in or boneless—in any of five sauces, including Apple Butter BBQ and Garlic-Parmesan.

Dave & Buster’s

Fridays isn’t the only one celebrating the phenomenon of the busted bracket. Basketball buffs who DM their busted bracket to @daveandbusters can play for free—the company is giving away up to a million game chips.

But you can’t eat that. This national chain is best recognized for its arcade games, but March Madness is playing on the oversized screens at the bar, too. On March 21, fans are invited to an all-day happy hour with $5 drinks from open to close. The next day, March 22, through April 8, barflies are treated to $2 beers and $5 shots. And game viewers hungry for a championship victory on April 8 can enjoy all-you-can-eat wings.
