Veterans Day is a very special day as we show our appreciation to our active-duty and retired military in many ways. One of those ways is many businesses offering a lot of great deals for our military to enjoy.

This Thursday, November 11th is Veterans Day and to honor our military both past and present, businesses across the country are offering all kinds of things like discounts on services and products, free meals and a lot more.

Many of these great deals are at stores, businesses and restaurants that we do not have in the Concho Valley so let's focus on some of the ones that we do have in San Angelo and let's just mention the ones having to do with food...which is always popular. Check out the list of some of the great local businesses that we know are offering special deals in the Concho Valley on Veterans Day.

Just some of our local restaurants offering special deals to our military both past and present include: Buffalo Wild Wings, Red Lobster, Golden Corral, Outback Steakhouse, Cotton Patch Cafe, IHOP, Little Caesars Pizza, Texas Roadhouse, Wendy's, Starbucks, Cici's Pizza, Denny's and Chili's Grill & Bar.

I'm sure there are many more local businesses offering special deals to our military to thank them for their service which we should do every day, but especially on Veterans Day!
