Veterans Day Food Specials in Athens

Yo, Veterans Day is tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov. 11), and military folks are entitled to some discounts:

  • Menchie’s (both locations) is offering current and former military personnel a free 6 oz. fro-yo
  • Buffalo’s, in Beechwood, usually gives veterans a 10 percent discount, but tomorrow they’re handing out free meals up to $10
  • Applebee’s, Olive Garden and Chili’s are also doing free meals, from a limited menu, for active and retired military
  • IHOP is offering free Red, White and Blue Pancakes from 7 a.m.–7 p.m.
  • Longhorn Steakhouse is giving out a free “Texas Tonion” and a nonalcoholic drink; Outback Steakhouse is doing the same with its Bloomin’ Onion
  • Carrabba’s and Red Lobster are handing out free appetizers 
  • Zoe’s Kitchen is doing free meals, plus 10 percent off for family members

Most of these require you to show a military ID or be in uniform. Check in advance, too, to make sure, as not all locations are participating.
