show us what you're cheating with!

On January 28, 2017 take part in round two of NATIONAL CHEAT DAY by enjoying your FAVORITE foods. Be decadent— be over the top— because we know after the foodie holiday ends you’ll go back to being your responsible (most of the time), health-conscious (is butter a carb?) self. It’s time to celebrate life’s greatest indulgence: food. Coming to a city, restaurant, house, or apartment near you!*


Share your “cheat day” food by hashtagging #NationalCheatDay on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.


*You can enjoy NATIONAL CHEAT DAY from ANYWHERE. Think of it like National Doughnut Day, National Bacon Day, or National Pumpkin Pie Day, but EVEN BETTER.



Datz is a South Tampa restaurant that decided the best way to celebrate their 7th birthday was to throw national foodie holiday. National Cheat Day started with a bang on January 28, 2016.


Datz opened on the same day in 2009 and is known for its "stunt foods" like The Cheesy Todd (a burger with fried jalapeño mac n' cheese “buns"), Buffalo Cauliflower (an enormous head of cauliflower that’s fried and dipped in delicious buffalo sauce), Mac n' Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf, Deep Fried Oreos, and more. Datz is known as "your cheat day destination since 2009" and is proclaming January 28 as NATIONAL CHEAT DAY.


Datz’s goal is to entertain foodies with dreamy dishes that in our modern, health-conscious society are sometimes thought of as foods to enjoy on a “cheat day” or a "day off", and we’re okay with that, because we know we’ve been your “cheat day” destination since 2009. Datz wants to invite foodies from all over the country to take part in “National Cheat Day” by enjoying their favorite sweets & carbs in a fun, tasty celebration. Welcome to the table— now pass the chips.
