Who's Eligible for the Red Robin Veterans Day Free Food

Both active military members and veterans can get Red Robin's free Veterans Day meal.

These are the only eligible customers, which means family members, guests, co-workers, friends, and anyone else who eats with the military members will have to pay regular price for their food.

What You Need to Take With You to Red Robin

Restaurants like Red Robin that are giving out Veterans Day free meals need to verify that their customers are in fact military members so that everyone who comes in can't pretend to be a veteran just to get free food.

Unlike previous years where military ID was required, before going to Red Robin for this deal in 2021, you need to sign up for their rewards program: Red Robin Royalty. Veterans and active military members who sign up by November 1 can get the free food offer.

The offer is automatically loaded to your dashboard if your military status is up-to-date on your account. All veterans and active duty members who have signed-up for Red Robin Royalty and have checked Yes for being associated with the military, can take advantage of this free meal deal.

Red Robin Veterans Day Restrictions

Red Robin is having their Veterans Day burger and fries deal over the course of a couple of weeks. As long as you were a rewards member by November 1, you can get the free meal anytime between November 1 and November 14.

You can make a to-go or dine-in order, but this offer is valid only at participating Red Robins locations. Check with your local Red Robin ahead of time if you want to be 100% sure that they're giving out free food on Veterans Day in 2021.

Not all customers who eat at Red Robin on Veterans Day can get the free burger and fries. This offer is valid for military members only. This is why you need to make sure to answer the military question when signing up for Red Robin Royalty or risk having to pay the full price for your meal.
