We probably don't thank our veterans enough, but Veteran's Day is a start. If you're still active duty or retired military personnel, businesses all over St. Louis are offering discounts and more. Check out some of the best places to go today after the jump.
Ted Drewes Frozen Custard (6726 Chippewa Street; 314-481-2652)
The St. Louis icon has a special Uncle Sam Sundae, a Fourth of July favorite. It's red, white and blue, of course -- strawberries, whipped cream, and blueberries on top of shortcake and custard. Veterans also get a $1.50 discount.
Iron Barley (5510 Virginia Avenue; 314-351-4500)
Iron Barley is offering a free meal to all veterans today. It's dine-in only, but pick from lunch specials, sandwiches, the chicken plate, the roasted plate and special cut prime rib.
Einstein Bros. Bagels (multiple locations)
Veterans, start your day off right with a free bagel and shmear courtesy of Melvyn and Elmo. It doesn't hurt that there are locations all over town, making it easy for the breakfast place to say thanks beginning at 5:30 a.m.
Casino Queen (200 South Front Street, East St. Louis; 618-874-5000)
The self-proclaimed home of the loosest slots is also offering a breakfast and lunch special. Show your military ID for a free buffet at the Casino Queen's restaurant, Market Street Buffet.
Hooters (multiple locations)
Get a free meal up to $10.99 with your military ID and purchase of a drink. But hey, you're gonna need a beer to wash down those wings anyway, right?
