Smokey Bones has decided not to offer a free Veterans Day meal for 2017.
Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill is one of many other restaurants that have a special menu just for service members to receive free food on Veterans Day.
Several other restaurants that are doing something similar include Outback Steakhouse, Red Robin, Red Lobster, Denny's, Texas Roadhouse, Applebee's, IHOP, LongHorn Steakhouse, T.G.I. Friday's, Olive Garden, BJ's Restaraunt, Golden Corral, and Chili's.
