To honor our veterans and active-duty military, we’ve gathered the best Veterans Day full meal deals at restaurants around the DMV.

"Veterans Day is a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good." 

U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs

Scrolling through the usual lists of Veterans Day food offers can be cumbersome, clicking on links to see if they’re located near you, what’s being offered, and even if you like the menu items. So we’ve done the legwork and included the menu items offered by each restaurant!

Sure, the free donuts or cups of coffee are great. However, we're about the FULL MEAL, and this is our little service to say thank you and to make Veterans Day easier and more enjoyable for you.
