Happy Veterans’ Day! Today we salute the soldiers and their families who have supported them while they served their country. Members of the restaurant industry are showing their support today by offering free and discounted meals and menu items to vets and active military members, just show your military ID. Here are some of the national restaurant chains that are showing their appreciation with food:
- Hooters – All veterans and active military personnel receive 10 free wings
- Applebee’s – A free Applebee’s Signature entrée for all vets and active duty military members.
- Golden Corral – Military appreciation dinner Monday 11/14, a free dinner to anyone who has ever served.
- Outback Steakhouse – Serving a free Bloomin’ Onion and a Coke to all who have and are serving in the military.
- McCormick & Schmick’s- Sunday 11/13 Veterans and active duty military receive complimentaryentrées.
Next year I would like to see some of the “higher end” restaurant chains participate in giving back on days like this. No disrespect to Hooters or Outback, they get a lot of props for giving back in what they’ve got to work with. But wouldn’t it be nice to see a Morton’s or Legal Seafood’s for example offer something back to a community that gives so much? We know that there are lots of independently owned establishments that are showing their support of Veterans Day today and over the weekend. If there is a local restaurant near you that is offering a deal, please feel free to leave a comment and give them a shout out for doing what they can to honor those who serve!
