From flowers to a gift to dinner out, Valentine's Day can be an expensive holiday.

To help you save some money, these trusted restaurants with locations in metro Atlanta are offering some cheap or free Valentine's Day meals.

Eat your heart out:

Hooters

209 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, 404-522-9464; Akers Mill Square, 2977 Cobb Pkwy SE, Atlanta, 770-984-0287. https://www.hooters.com.

If you're without a significant other this Valentine's Day – or even if you've found a new sweetie and want to score some free wings – Hooters will help you shred your ex. Shred online and print a coupon to take to the restaurant or bring in a photo of your former love and let Hooters shred it. In return, you can buy 10 boneless wings and get 10 free - and maybe a bit of catharsis.

Fogo de Chão

3101 Piedmont Road, Atlanta, 404-266-9988; 4671 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody, 678-691-7268. http://fogodechao.com.

If you make a reservation and dine at Fogo's anytime from Feb. 10 through Feb. 14, you'll be able to save on a return visit. You'll receive a complimentary lunch or dinner card that you can use next time you're in the restaurant. (As is usually the case, "certain restrictions apply.")

Qdoba Mexican Eats

Take advantage of the restaurant's "Qdoba for a Kiss" promotion, and you'll be able to buy one entrée and get one free on Feb. 14. Bring your significant other to kiss, smooch a photo of your favorite celebrity on your cell phone or even pucker up to a burrito – anything goes! 

On top of that sweet deal, from Feb. 10 -15, if you share a kissing photo on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #QdobaForAKiss, Qdoba will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry.

Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse offers a Valentine's Day meal for two from Feb. 9-14. For prices starting at $42 per couple, you can share a Bloomin' Onion, choose two entrees (center cut sirloin, grilled salmon or Alice Springs chicken), two sides, two salads and cheesecake for dessert. A Love Potion Cocktail is also available for $5.

California Pizza Kitchen

Enjoy a "Sweet Deal for Two" at California Pizza Kitchen from Feb. 10 to 14, and you'll get an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert from their special menu for $35. Choose from among three appetizers, 10 entrees or four desserts. As a further incentive, if you tag your sweetie or best friend in California Pizza Kitchen's Facebook post with the hashtag #CPKgiveaway, you'll be entered to win a $100 gift card.

Waffle House

Various metro Atlanta locations, https://www.wafflehouse.com.

Waffle House probably isn't the restaurant you think of when you're picturing a candlelit dinner with cloth napkins and tablecloths, but that's just what they're doing on Valentine's Day. You can enjoy alcohol-free champagne as the lights are dimmed, and choose from breakfast favorites or special offerings like ribeye and eggs. Many metro Atlanta locations are participating, so check for your location's phone number and contact person for reservations.
