Here’s our annual roundup of Memorial Day deals for 2020! Normally, many chains give out heavy discounts or free meals to Veterans and active Military personnel. There’s still some of that this year, but with many dining rooms still closed due to coronavirus, some restaurants will be doing different things, and lots of these deals are good all weekend long!
To redeem many of these offers, you will need to show proof of service, such as a valid military ID or Veterans Organization Card (i.e., American Legion and VFW). Wearing a uniform or showing a photo of yourself in uniform is also accepted as proof of service at some restaurants. Before you head out, check with your local restaurant to confirm the military discount is available at your desired location.
Lots of restaurant chains also offer ongoing military discounts, not just for holidays. For more info on which restaurants have them, click here to go to our EatDrinkDeals Restaurant Veterans and Military Discounts page.
We include links to restaurant websites where you can confirm the deal and find further information. EatDrinkDeals does not post deals that cannot be verified from a source such as the restaurant website, social media account, or press release.

About Memorial Day (from Wikipedia)
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May,originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.
