FREE Meal for Veterans on Veterans Day 2015

On June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars. Thank you all for your service!

Following is a list of some businesses offering veterans free meals today. Since there are so many participating restaurants, and I try to blog about healthy eating habits, I have chosen some of the restaurants with healthy food choices on the menu. More information is available through the restaurant links (in the title for most in this listing), and/or you can call ahead for further details.


Beverage abd gratuity not included. Seven entree choices.

Bar Louie

Free appetizer or entree; see server for details.

BJs Brewhouse

Free entree, up to $12.95 value. Offer valid to all active duty military and veterans, with proof of service. May need to scroll down the page, if the veterans promo does not show at the top of the page.


Free 6 oz. steak with two sides - I would choose from garden salad, broccoli, sweet potato (without sweet butter), or coleslaw!
