Couple more I've heard of - I got an email from Chili's offering a free Veteran's meal from a special menu with proof of service any time on Nov. 11. You can see the menu at their website.

Also I saw driving by the local (Green Bay, WI) Hooters that they were also offering a free meal for Veterans on Nov 11. Not sure if this is chain-wide.
