Valentine's Day is Friday, and if you still haven't made any plans, we've got some ideas that won't break the bank. 

Here's a rundown of a bunch of deals from big chain restaurants:

1.  Chick-fil-A.  They're selling an entire Valentine's Day dinner with 30 nuggets, six chocolate chunk cookies, and 10 Chick-N-Minis, all served in heart-shaped tins.  The offer is good the entire month of February, or while supplies last.

2.  Hooters.  They're bringing back the "Shred Your Ex" promotion this year.  If you destroy a photo of your ex either in a restaurant or on their website, you'll get a coupon for 10 free boneless wings when you buy 10 wings.

3.  Qdoba.  Their "Qdoba for a Kiss" deal is back, where you buy one entrée and then get one free by sharing a kiss with someone on Valentine's Day.  And if you're single it still works . . . kissing your dog or even a photo on your phone counts.

4.  Olive Garden.  If you want to avoid the hassle of actually going to a restaurant next weekend, Olive Garden is offering a three-course meal called the Valentine's Day ToGo Dinner for Two.  It comes with soup or salad, dipping sauce for breadsticks, a sharable entree, and a dessert, starting at $35.  And you can grab a breadstick bouquet too.

5.  California Pizza Kitchen.  They're also doing a $35 dinner-for-two promo... and they're making pizza with a heart-shaped crust for no additional charge.  They'll also be giving out gift cards for a buy-one, get-one pizza on a return visit. 

6.  Red Lobster.   They're serving those beloved Cheddar Bay Biscuits in romantic heart-shaped boxes this year.   The seafood chain is selling its cheesy biscuits by the half-dozen in sweet holiday-themed "You're My Lobster" gift boxes.

7.  Papa Johns.  The chain’s Heart-Shaped Pizza starts with a crispy thin crust base and can be made-to-order with the toppings of your choice.   Heart-shaped pizzas carry a suggested price of $11 each with promo code:  VALENTINE.  You can also get a heart-shaped pizza paired with a double chocolate chip brownie for a suggested price of $16 with promo code:  BEMINE.

8.  Boston Market.  They're going to be selling bouquets of baby back ribs at all of their stores nationwide this Valentine's Day.  For $30 you'll get 12 ribs wrapped up like a bouquet.  If that's not enough rib romance for you, they're also offering a Valentine's dinner special:  Two half racks of ribs, four sides, and cornbread for $20.

9 .  Hickory Farms.  Consider giving a salami bouquet this Valentine's Day.  It’s cheesy, but in a good way.  The bouquet is $49 and includes three 7oz types of dry salamis: an original one, a “three pepper” flavor and a truffle one.  It comes covered in red tissue paper and is tied with a ribbon and comes tucked into a box that’s filled shredded paper, which makes it feel extra special.
