Perkins Restaurants have their annual Free Pancake Day on Thursday, September 27, 2018.
In this annual event, customers are invited to enjoy a free short stack of made-from-scratch buttermilk pancakes at any participating Perkins Restaurant & Bakery. Perkins announced the special on Their Free Pancakes Website and Facebook Page.
