Applebee's offers free meals to veterans on Veteran's Day, which is observed annually on November 11. Veterans and active-duty military personnel who provide proof of military service are eligible to receive a free entrée at locations in the United States.
Acceptable forms of proof of service include a Uniform Service Identification or Retirement Card, a current Leave and Earnings Statement, a Veteran Organization card, or a photo of the veteran in uniform. Applebee's also encourages service members to arrive in uniform. Veterans can choose from a special menu that includes some of Applebee's most popular dishes. Free meals are available for dine-in only during regular business hours.
