Veterans Day is just around the corner. It’s a day for some wonderful food deals for veterans and active military; a day to honor those who fight for our country. If you’re not a veteran, but would still like to show some love, I’ve also included a list of veteran-owned restaurants and food trucks in the Wichita area.
If I’m missing any deals or a veteran-owned restaurant, please email us with those or post in the comments below.
Be sure to let your family members and friends know of these deals and to thank them for their service. To take advantage of any deals, it’s best practice to bring your military ID or proof of service. For the chains listed on this list, be aware that it does depend on location and may not apply to a Wichita store.
