All veterans and active military get a free meal on Veterans Day

We’re once again commemorating Veterans Day by treating veterans and troops to a meal on the house. All day on Monday, November 11, all veterans and US military can stop by any City Barbeque joint and get a free sandwich, two sides, and a regular beverage. We’ve been thanking our nation’s veterans with a meal in this way for more than a decade now; last year alone, we served 12,340 free Veterans Day meals, and we’re hoping to serve even more in 2019!

“It’s so important to the whole team here at City Barbeque to honor our military men and women,” said Rick Malir, CEO and founder of City Barbeque. “We’re grateful every day for their service and sacrifice, and we’re honored every Veterans Day to show our appreciation by sharing some quality time and some good barbeque.”

We are honored to serve and support our veterans and active military, both on Veterans Day and throughout the year. We’ve raised more than $50,000 to date for the Resurrecting Lives Foundation, who works to support the estimated 20–25% of troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with traumatic brain injury. We’ve also made significant donations to Mission 22, a campaign dedicated to awareness and treatment of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries that lead 22 veterans here at home to take their lives every day.

So share the news with the veterans and military folks in your life, and join us on Monday, November 11 in thanking them for their service.

Free meals applicable on dine-in and carryout orders; cannot be redeemed on orders placed online or via third-party delivery services.
