Even though Veterans Day is Sunday, Veterans Day 2018 will be observed on Monday.  That’s because when the holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed the next business day.  Regardless of the date Veterans Day is observed, there are plenty of restaurants that will be thanking active and retired military personnel for their service. How will they be thanking them? With free food or free drink or sometimes both.



This Sunday, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar is on a mission to serve one million free meals to neighborhood military heroes. For the 11th year, Applebee’s restaurants nationwide will invite all veterans and active-duty military to visit their local restaurants on Veterans Day to enjoy a complimentary full-size entree from an exclusive menu.
