Guide to Veterans Day Deals in Fort Worth

Being that I am a proud daughter of a military veteran, let me start by saying thank you to all who have served and are currently serving our country. For your sacrifice and commitment, know that you are appreciated and loved.

In honor of Veterans Day, here is a list of deals offered to you — whether you are looking family restaurants, fast food, or something light. Or maybe you’re just wanting to enjoy a nice breakfast or catch a nice breeze on the patio. There is something for you to enjoy on your own or with the family.

Not sure, or still have questions? Call ahead and speak with establishment to verify promotions and eligibility. Bring proof of identification with you, and keep establishment discretion in mind. Coming from a former server, please be mindful of servers and the establishments. These servers really do thank you and appreciate your service.

Cameron, daughter of retired veteran James Holland, Sr., was born in Germany and raised right here in Fort Worth. She is raising two rambunctious boys, Aiden James (five years) and Camden (18 months). When able to catch a break, she enjoys coffee, blogging, singing, and loving Jesus. She’s always had a passion for helping others and wanting to conquer the world. She hopes to start her own non-profit organization raising awareness of langerhans cell histiocytosis for children and parents all over the world. When one emergency room visit to Cook Children’s led to a rare diagnosis, her life changed in the blink of an eye, and she’s not letting that stop her from leaving her mark on the world.


  1. Hi Cameron,

    Looks like I just missed you in time for your Veterans Day roundup story….That said, I have a great deal in DFW I wanted to throw in the hopper, and see if you’d be interested in updating your story.

    This Veterans Day, Goodyear Auto Service locations throughout DFW are showing thanks and appreciation to those who serve by offering all active and retired military members and first responders FREE “Checks for Vets,” plus up to $250 off tires.

    Effective Nov. 9-11, “Checks for Vets” includes FREE tire, brake and battery checks. Military and first responders will also receive 10 percent off tires instantly, which means $250 in savings when used with additional offers in-store.
