Start Early For Your 2010 Free Veteran’s Day Meals

by Hank

The USS Constitution with American FlagHappy Veteran’s Day! Be sure to check out these restaurants for a free meal in support of the holiday. Just one thing that I noticed last year eating at Applebee’s, you need to get out there early. The lines are long and the wait is long but worth it. It is a great service that these restaurants are offering our Veterans, and it is very much appreciated.

Restaurants Offering Free Veteran’s Day Meals

    Applebee’s – Military veterans and active-duty Service Members will be able to eat free at any Applebee’s in the US.

    Golden Corral – The 9th Annual Golden Corral Military Appreciation dinner will be held on Monday, November 15, 2010 from 5 pm to 9 pm at all Golden Corral Restaurants

    Chili’s – Chili’s is offering all military veterans past and present one of 6 meals for free on Veteran’s Day. This offer is available during business hours on November 11, 2010 at participating Chili’s in the U.S.

    Texas Roadhouse – many Texas Roadhouses are offering a free meal during select hours today on Veteran’s Day.

    Uno Chicago Grill – Uno’s is offering a free entree or individual pizza with a purchase of another entree or pizza to veterans on Thursday, November 11th.

    Outback Steakhouse – Outback Steakhouse is offering active duty military and veterans a free Bloomin’ Onion and one non-alcoholic beverage on Thursday, November 11th.

Nice information on the email, unfortunately, I did not receive it until 12 November! Totally useless!!!!! This posting (and email) should have mentioned that the lines will be around the block and the intermitable.

You are totally right, and I apologize. The article went live on the website on Veteran’s Day, but email subscribers did not receive it until this morning. It was definitely a scheduling error and again I’m very sorry for that. Don’t forget about Golden Corral this Monday afternoon though.

You are right again about the lines as well. I took advantage of this program last year, but had to wait over an hour to get into an Applebee’s to sit at the bar with a friend. It would have been considerably longer had I taken my family. It is a great idea that veterans should definitely receive, and the long lines make it almost not worth the hassle. This year, I ended up staying home.
