What You Need to Take With You to Red Robin
Restaurants like Red Robin that are giving out Veterans Day free meals need to verify that their customers are in fact military members so that everyone who comes in can't pretend to be a veteran just to get free food.
Before going to Red Robin for this deal, just make sure you have your military ID. If you can't provide military ID but are in fact a retired or active military member, I suggest contacting your local Red Robin to see if there's something else you can bring as proof of service.
