Applebee's throughout Washington and Idaho are offering a free meal to U.S. veterans and military for Veterans Day.

A press release from Applebee's Neighborhood Grill + Bar® said a free signature dish is available to veterans at nation-wide locations, November 11. This will be the restaurant chain's 10th year of acknowledging veterans through this offer.

Leaders said this deal is only available to all retired and active-duty military members who dine in.

Washington and Idaho locations are also inviting guests to "Buy A Vet A Bud" through Veterans Day. Guests can purchase a beer at their local Applebee’s to be given to a veteran who provides proof of service at the restaurant on Veterans Day for free. Participants must be 21 and older.
