    Golden Coral is not allowing vets to eat free until Monday night. After all the vets have done, why make them wait a few days after the day that is suppose to be set apart for them? Wow how dumb is that

    • Bill P

      I , being a veteran appreciate what Golden Coral does ever year . I am sure there is a good reason that they don’t hold their free meal when they do . I know that they serve a lot of meals to veterans when they do . I believe that if you took a vote among veterans that have served and do visit Golden Corral don’t mind what day it is and appreciate the free meal .

        Thank you for your service. I hope you could use some of these deals for yourself today.

      Actually it benefits the vets. There are only so many places you can eat in one day. Having it a week later gives them another opportunity to participate and be honored.
