While Memorial Day sales and Memorial Day grocery food deals might be getting all the attention on Memorial Day (May 29, 2023), we also like to focus on all the Memorial Day food deals happening this weekend, specifically Memorial Day restaurant deals, Memorial Day food freebies, and Memorial Day free Veteran meals for Memorial Day.

​​The unofficial start to summer means a lot of things, including Memorial Day food. But most of all, it means remembering those who gave everything to serve our country. That’s why some Memorial Day food deals are strictly for active military, veterans, and their families.

If you’re looking for a place to kick off summer and honor our veterans, check out these restaurants offering Memorial Day food and dessert deals.
