Nothing says thank you like a great burger and Shoney's is set to prove it. The all-American restaurant brand will thank our nation's veterans and troops with a free All-American Burger on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, 2013.

"For generations, Shoney's always has been a 'Welcome Home' sign to America's military," says CEO David Davoudpour. "On their national day of celebration and honor, Shoney's looks forward to welcoming our veterans and troops with a free burger as we thank those who protect our very freedom. We salute you."

Davoudpour says service members will be treated to Shoney's Signature favorite All-American Burger, a hand-pattied, grain-fed ground beef burger, served on a toasted corn-dusted bun with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, and mayonnaise.

"It's named after the greatest country on earth and has been a guest favorite for years," Davoudpour says.

Since acquiring the eatery in 2007, Davoudpour has been on a mission to make Shoney's better. Shoney's served as a popular post–World War II family destination when it began serving guests 66 years ago. Davoudpour says he personally sees that an American flag flies in front of his Shoney's restaurants.

"Veterans Day is a day of thanks and for us, being able to serve the many who serve for our freedom is a privilege," Davoudpour adds. "We are thankful every day for our veterans and troops, and on their day we look forward to serving them a free burger."

Shoney's offer of a free All-American Burger to veterans and active duty military service members is available on Monday, November 11, 2013 at participating restaurants while supplies last. There is a limit of one per day per military service member and the offer is not valid in conjunction with any other offers. Shoney's military guests will need to provide proof of military service.
