Veterans Day 2020 is here, which means many restaurants, diners and fast food chains are offering special deals and discounted meals to veterans and active military today. If you’re looking for restaurant specials and freebies, we’ve rounded up several offers available for retired veterans and active-duty military personnel on Wednesday, November 11.
Keep in mind that most businesses require proof of military service, so Heavy would like remind readers to bring a military ID, discharge papers, a VA card, or any other proof of military status (active or retired) to ensure you’re able to take advantage of the deals on Veterans Day. Read on for a rundown of popular restaurants offering specials, free meals or discounts below:
