Shoney’s Observes Veterans Day With Free Burger Offer

shoneysVeterans and active-duty service members are eligible for a free burger at Shoney’s on Veterans Day.

The chain restaurant – locally located at 1307 N. Main St. in Summerville and 1177 Sniders Hwy. in Walterboro – on Nov. 11 is offering an “All-American burger” to vets and military members who can provide proof of service. The burger was the centerpiece of a 2009 weekday “burger bundle” promotion, presumably designed to lure fast-food customers into the sit-down restaurants: During the campaign, Shoney’s sold the burger, fries and a drink for $4.99.

This time around, the fries, drink, tax and gratuity aren’t included. The fine print also stipulates that the free burger offer can’t be combined with any other coupons, and claimants are entitled to just one burger apiece. But a few rules probably won’t scare off eaters with military backgrounds.

“On their national day of celebration and honor, Shoney’s looks forward to welcoming our veterans and troops with a free burger,” CEO David Davoudpour is quoted as saying in a release. “We salute you.”
