Restaurants and other businesses want to thank our veterans and active duty personnel on Veterans Day with free or discounted food and services.
Most deals are valid November 11. Some are different days.
Some deals are available for veterans only, while others are valid for both veterans and active military personnel. Offers don’t usually cover gratuity and tax.
Proof of military status is required for most offers, so be prepared to show ID verifying your service. As always, more deals will be added as they’re announced, so make sure you check back. If you know of any deals we left out, please comment below.
Participation may vary, so be sure to check with your local restaurant to confirm that they’ll be offering the Veterans Day special.
