Don't forget To Ask And Don't forget your ID
Many restaurants that give a military discount don’t advertise these discounts. You’ll need to ask for them. They also vary by location, so make sure to call ahead to find out what is available at your local restaurant.
It is important to mention that many of the discounts below are for active duty members and First Responders.
It is also important to note that these benefits are generally for restaurants off base, not on base. However, on base you are not required to pay sales tax.
