Max & Erma’s To Offer Free Veterans Day Meal

United States Veteran, Max Visocnik was proud of his family, his country and his restaurant. Everyone who visited his restaurant in the German Village area of Columbus, Ohio left with a memorable experience.

More than 40 years later, Max’s spirit lives on at Max & Erma’s restaurants across the country. On Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, Max & Erma’s will combine two of its most popular traditions.

First, participating restaurants will salute veterans and active military personnel with a free, Three-course Combo featuring the Best Cheeseburger in America, hand-crushed from fresh, never frozen beef; Max & Erma’s signature Tortilla Soup or side house salad; endless seasoned fries; and one of Erma’s fresh baked cookies.

Secondly, Max & Erma’s will also offer Kids Eat Free Tuesday. Those under 12 will eat free from the Kids Menu with the purchase of an adult entrée at participating locations.

“We take pride in being a neighborhood gathering spot,” said Andy Swingley, Vice President of Operations for Max & Erma’s Restaurants. “Offering this free Veterans Day meal, the Best Cheeseburger in America, and a chance for kids to eat free will help families come together and share stories that span generations.”

To take advantage of the offer, veterans and active personnel must show their military I.D. to their server. The offer does not apply to carry-out orders.
