Hickory Tavern Offers Free Meal to All Veterans and Troops on Memorial Day

Hickory Tavern Offers Free Meal to All Veterans and Troops on Memorial DayCharlotte, NC  (Restaurant News Release)  Hickory Tavern®, the casually social neighborhood restaurant acclaimed for its sports passion, will honor America’s fallen military members on Memorial Day (Monday, May 30, 2016) at all 24 locations by offering a free meal to all veterans and active duty military.

“This is our way of honoring our fallen heroes on this day of remembrance,” said Hickory Tavern CMO Thom Perez. “We look forward to welcoming guests on Memorial Day and treating vets and troops as we all remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.”

Since opening its first restaurant in Charlotte almost 20 years ago, Hickory Tavern has become the neighborhood restaurant destination for the entire family. Perhaps best known for being named runner up in ESPN’s Best Sports Bar in North America, Hickory Tavern’s unique brand of polished casual features a lively bar atmosphere, upscale menu and approximately 70 TVs throughout the restaurant, bar and patio.

While known for its sports passion, Hickory Tavern is very different from a traditional sports bar.  Punctuating those differences are its attentive service, “guest first” attitude and extensive and diverse menu. In addition to wings, burgers and signature sandwiches, guests will find on its menu dishes such as Seared Ahi Tuna, Oysters, Lobster Roll, Shrimp & Grits, Crab Legs, Steamed Shrimp and three steak options. Hickory Tavern is also noted for its kids’ menu with 10 entrées and 10 sides options. And for the salad lovers out there, Hickory Tavern has become famous for its “Build Your Own” Salad that each guest customizes by choosing the type of leaf base, vegetables, fruit, cheese, crunches and proteins.

Hickory Tavern’s offer of a free meal to veterans and active duty military is available on Monday, May 30, 2016, open to close. All Hickory Tavern locations are participating. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are included. Offer is for dine-in only. There is a limit of one meal per veteran or active duty military with Military ID. There is no cash value on the offer. For more information, guests are encouraged to contact their local Hickory Tavern.
