Applebee’s Provides Veterans Free Meal Today

1254685035B7HGZ6 Who says that there’s no such thing as a free lunch—or even a free dinner?   Today, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar Restaurants around the country are offering a free meal for veterans and military active-duty personnel.

Since it’s the first year of this kind of promotion and with that in mind, restaurants are in “all-hands-on-deck” mode and opening a half-hour earlier than normal at 10:30am today.  The restaurants have been completely decorated in patriotic themes, and all staff will be wearing read, white and blue.

1178380886oTczxd To qualify for the free meal, customers must bring military identification, such as a Uniform Services Identification Card, Uniform Services Retired Identification Card, current leave and earnings statement, veterans’ organization card, a photograph in uniform, a DD214 form, a commendation. Or, just wear their uniforms.


  1. What a wonderful day today. I took my mom to lunch, which we celebrated with all the Veterans' at Applebee's. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to thank the uniformed service men near our table.

  2. Thank you for posting this, Anthony! I let me friend know (retired vet) and he and his family enjoyed a meal at Applebee's!
