This Thursday, November 11, is Veterans Day; a federal holiday intended to recognize and honor all former, living military veterans for their service to our country.

And restaurants around El Paso would like to do so with free food offers.

I've listed the restaurants below in alphabetical order. Please keep the following in mind: Unless otherwise noted, these offerings are valid solely on Veterans Day.

Most are dine-in only, and all of them require some form of military ID. Be sure you call ahead or check with management upon arrival as many chains are franchisee owned and participation may vary.

And thank you for your service.
