Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have sacrificed their lives in order to protect and serve their country. In order to pay tribute to fallen soldiers and those who continue to serve, many restaurants offer specials for both veterans and active-duty members of the military on Memorial Day. Just remember to bring your military ID or veterans’ identification, for proof. This year, National Hamburger Day and Memorial Day fall on the same date, which means there are burger deals going on as well. Check out a list of deals that are available overall today.
Hooters – Active military and veterans receive a free meal at Hooters today with any drink purchase. There is also a special menu to order from, which includes Buffalo Chicken Salad, Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, the Hooters Burger, a 10-Piece Traditional Wings and a 10-Piece Boneless Wings. In addition to the Memorial Day special, Hooters provides a 20% off military discount every Tuesday and a 10% military discount every other day. The free menu options for Memorial Day may vary by location.
Chili’s – According to USA Today, the new Chili’s Chili Burger, the Classic Bacon Burger or Oldtimer with Cheese will be available for $6.99 on Monday if you mention the National Burger Day deal.
Houlihan’s Restaurant – This year, the restaurant has a couple deals that are actually going to take place on Tuesday, May 29, 2018, instead of on Monday. The Impossible Burger has been added to menus as a limited-time item and on Tuesday, contestants can get the new burger for free. The limit is one per customer and only while supplies last.
