The Cheesecake Factory is giving away free food this April Fools’ Day, and it’s not a joke.

Fans of the restaurant chain can get free food through the delivery service DoorDash. The first 10,000 people to log in to DoorDash, open the offer page on The Cheesecake Factory’s website, and select “claim free food” will receive a $US25 reward to use on any one order from the restaurant through April 7.

The deal is available at all locations of The Cheesecake Factory from which DoorDash delivers.

“On a day where most people play pranks and make jokes, we are so pleased to offer 10,000 of our guests something that is real and meaningful,” The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated founder and CEO David Overton said. “We hope all of our guests will enjoy delivery from DoorDash throughout the week without a delivery fee.”
