It’s nearly Independence Day, and many locally-owned bars and restaurants are making it easy for San Antonians to celebrate their freedom to eat whatever the hell they want with holiday meal deals and events.

We rounded up a handful of local deals — with diverse cuisines, to boot — to whet your appetite for discounted dishes on the Fourth.

Comfort Café, known for hearty breakfast and brunch fare, will offer special menu items such as s’mores-stuffed waffles, a country omelette and rodeo burger — a house-made burger topped with caramelized onions, bacon, cheddar cheese, barbecue sauce and crunchy onions. Of course, there’s also a red, white and blue dish, consisting of Swedish-style crepes topped with blueberries, strawberries and whipped cream. Specials served all weekend long. Comfort Café, multiple locations, serenitystar.org

Sari-Sari Filipino Restaurant will offer ten pieces of free lumpia for every pound of Lechon Kawali (deep-fried pork belly) purchased, as well as $0.50 lumpia in any quantity on Sunday. These deals will be for preordered pick up only, so place your orders with the shop as soon as possible. Sari-Sari Filipino Restaurant, (210) 647-7274, sari-sari-satx.com

If vegan hot dogs aren’t your jam, the full menu — including the signature Original Project Chick’n sandwich and vegan Mac & Cheese — will be available for purchase.

The event begins at 4 p.m. on July 4, and will continue through the night. A "surprise" R&B band will perform at 6 p.m., and there is no cover for the 21-and-up event.
