Sweet Lou’s Restaurants are saluting the troops by offering all current and former members of the US armed forces a free, hand-cut, six-ounce, USDA choice top sirloin with one side on Veterans Day.
“We start cutting steaks two days before November 11 in preparation of the big day,” Chad Foust, owner of Sweet Lou’s, said. “We will be more than ready to serve our local heroes.”
This year, the holiday falls on a Monday – which at both Sweet Lou’s locations serves as a holiday itself.
“It will be fun to have the energy of our Monday night football crowd along with our veterans,” Foust said. “We serve the special all day beginning at 11 AM, so if veterans are looking for a quieter meal, it may be better to come in earlier.”
For nine years, Foust has offered free steak lunches and dinners to veterans. Over the years, Foust estimates he has given away close to 2,500 steaks.
“It’s an honor to be able to give them something to recognize their dedication to the country,” Foust said. “I plan on doing this as long as I can.”
To redeem your Veterans Day special, you must present valid military ID. The offer is good for dine-in only and will only be available on Monday, November 11 from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Sweet Lou’s Restaurant and Bar is located at 477272 Hwy 95 in Ponderay and Sweet Lou’s Restaurant and Tap House is at 601 N Front St. in Coeur d’Alene. Both locations are open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
