Smokey Bones Honors Veterans

Orlando, FL November 11, 2014 — Tuesday, November 11 is Veterans Day and Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill is honoring those who have served our country all day long with an “on the house” menu tailored by Executive Chef Jason Gronlund, himself a veteran of the United States Army. Military veterans and active service men and women can receive their free meal at any of Smokey Bones’ 65 restaurant locations.

As a veteran, Chef Jason feels it’s his duty and an honor to share his culinary work with fellow vets and active military. “I’ve been lucky to find a great life in the kitchen after my military service and love sharing my passion with others who are currently serving or who have served in the past.” The special Veterans Day menu includes the Smokey Bones ½ lb. Premium Burger, Pulled Pork Platter, Nutty Chicken Salad and more – all free for those showing proof of military service.

Smokey Bones doesn’t just honor the nation’s military on this important day – in fact, they offer a military discount at every location, every day. “Many of our restaurants are close to some of the country’s largest military bases. We are honored to serve the families of those in the military, share celebrations with them, and be part of their lives year round,” says Roger Drake, Senior Vice President of Marketing.
