Military Appreciation Free Dinners

* These offers have ended.

Veterans Day is Tuesday, November 11th, and many restaurants are honoring veterans and active duty military by giving them a free meal.

Participating McCormick & Schimicks restaurants are giving veterans a free entree from a special menu on 11/09/08. Must present proper identification.

Select Applebee’s Restaurants in AZ, CA, IL, IA, NY, MN, NC, PA, TN, VA, and WI will offer all active duty military and veterans a free entree from a select menu on November 11th. Click here for additional info including a list of locations.

A few Texas Roadhouse locations in Michigan will be offering a free entree to all active duty military and veterans from the Texas 2’Fers menu. This will take place on November 11th from 4-6 PM. I’m not sure if other locations will be participating but you can always call your local Texas Roadhouse and ask. 

Golden Corral Restaurants will be having a Military Appreciation Dinner on November 17th from 5-9 PM. The free “thank you” dinner is available to anyone who has ever served in the US military: veterans, retired, currently serving, National Guard, and Reserves are all included.
