Whether you like your burger piled high with lettuce and tomato or slathered with chili, you're in luck. There are plenty of special deals available on Sunday.

Some 57 percent of consumers in the U.S. ate burgers more than once a week in 2015, according to Technomic's Burger Consumer Trend Report. That number is down slightly from 2013, when 68 percent of Americans reported chowing down on burgers more than once in a week.

Here's a round-up of where to snag free, discounted and specialty burgers:

  • Receive a free burger (up to $10 value) with the purchase of an adult entree on Sunday at Ruby Tuesday. In order to redeem the coupon, customers must be signed up for the restaurant's SoConnected email club.
  • Black Angus Steakhouse is offering a coupon for customers to get any lunch entree for $8.99, including the Steakhouse Bacon Cheeseburger and Guacamole Burger, until Sept. 19.
