Applebees Restaurant Veterans Day Free Meal for Veterans and Active Duty Military

Applebees menu veterans day
Applebee’s Menu will be slightly different and on-the-house for Veterans and active duty military personnel, only on the Veteran’s Day (11th Nov 2013). Applebees says that it is a way of thanking these veterans for the services towards the country. But we would say it is an ARK an Act of Random Kindness by Applebees. Not only this, but it is an inspiration to the people reminding them the importance of their services.   

Applebee's Restaurant has decided to offer free meal to veterans and active-duty military personals on Monday. The offer starts from 11 a.m and may last through the midnight or even later according to location and crowd.

To avail this offer the veterans will have to evident any valid proof of service such as US Uniform Services Identification Card, US Uniform Services Retired ID Card, Veterans Organizations Card, DD214, Current Leave and Earning statement, Citation or Commendation or Photograph wearing uniform.

The free meal offer for veterans and service personnel is valid only for dine-in and meals cannot be parceled. The Applebees menu for Veterans Day purportedly has limited items such as bacon cheddar cheeseburger, chicken tenders platter, double crunch shrimps, oriental chicken salad and some more. The offer may perhaps vary according to the location. 

For more information on the offer you can visit the site here Applebees Menu.   You can also take this opportunity and thank veterans and military personnel by taking part in the THANK YOU MOVEMENT. (click the link to visit the page).

Applebees menu: Listed categories of Foods

When it comes to delicious cuisines, one of the first food chains that come to my mind is Applebees restaurant along with others such as Leopold, Pizza Hut etc. Most people would also suggest Dominos but I personally feel Smoking Joes is better than Dominos. However, it is not doubt that Applebees is one of the prominent brands in restaurant industry. As I mentioned in my previous write- up why Applebee is famous, here is something that will help you understand why people adore it so much.

For me the main reason why this bistro is fascinating is that Applebees menu has a wide range of foods to offer. It is white impossible to mention all that the restaurant offers but at least I can try to write down some categories.

Steak dishes in Applebees menu:
I cannot tell you the exact ingredients or tastes of the steak offered in this food chain. But flavor loaded steak offered under Applebees menu is something you got to try. It is said the Applebees’ Tijuana Philly Steak Sandwich is one of the favorites of patrons who frequently visit the bistro. There is a new introduction of Applebees steak recipe which is Sizzling Cajun Steak and Shrimp. I am not supposed to give away the recipe but to your information the dish is topped with Cajun and blackened shrimp served with red pepper and sautéed onion. This item is available at many Applebees outlets but I got to know about this dish from the Bronx, New York outlet at 225th Street.

Another good steak item that is suggested to people is Asiago Peppercorn steak. This item comes with melted Asiago cheese and cracked peppercorn cheese. There are many other steak items but I would prefer speaking about Applebees steak recipes in my next post for now let us focus on other categories of food offered in Applebees menu. I may not give you information on every single dish but will roughly go through the categories which may have specific food items in each category. Remember that the categories may vary from outlet to outlet.

Here are some categories listed in Applebees menu:

  • The so called ‘Sizzling Entrees’
  • Under 550 calorie dishes (Grilled Dijon Chicken and Portobellos)
  • Ultimate Trios from Applebees
  • Appetizers (I like ‘Stomach’ appetizers more as well as Leopold Appetizers)
  • Ribs
  • Chicken dishes
  • Seafood (Double crunch shrimp is one of the most moving)
  • Sandwiches
  • Range of ‘Realburgers’
  • Kids Menu
  • Desserts

This is not all, you may get some more categories each containing various finger licking cuisines. And Yes! you may also get preferred beverages such as Bud light, Miller Light, Corona Light, Blue moon etc. I never tried any of these so cant comment the experience, but looking forward to experience it once and it is gonna be soon.

Apart from their restaurant chain operation in US the brand has its presence in approximately 16 other countries. Remember that there are possibilities that you may sometimes not get a dish mentioned here, as Applebees menu may vary from outlet to outlet.

Applebees Menu - why is it so famous?

While searching for successful international franchises I just came across another name in the list Applebees. The actual name is Applebee’s International Inc, which is an American company which is a franchise, and regulates the Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar bistro chain. It is not only the franchise scheme that makes the name Applebees known world wide but it is also their service that is loved by people wherever the eat- out has its presence. There are numerous mouth watering treats listed on Applebees menu and definitely you would find your delight.

The concept of Applebees revolves around the casual dining including mainstream American cuisine with spectrum of types of salads, shrimps, variety of pastas, riblet, as well as chicken cuisine etc. With so much to offer it seems to me that it is a must try restaurant. The headquarters of the chain is in Lenexa Kansas, but it is believed that soon the Applebees headquarters will be relocated to Kansa City, in Missouri.

For those who are food crazy, the business aspect of Applebees seems less important, but people who have tried food at the restaurant are very confident about the taste and quality served to the people through variety of cuisines. Perhaps, to me this is the reason why Applebees is so famous through out the world.

I have been watching that apart from providing gratification of taste it also offers gift card, Applebees coupon and many more. Being a cuisine enthusiast and after trying numerous types of cuisines, I am looking forward to tryout the food items offered in Applebees. So my next step is to find out the nearest outlets of Applebees and perhaps I may even share it with my viewers.
