Texas Roadhouse restaurants in Colorado Springs and Monument are making the offer. At Fort Carson homecomings over the past decade, soldiers have frequently mentioned the restaurant chain as their first stop on U.S. soil.

“All veterans – including all active, retired or former U.S. military –  can choose one of 10 entrees, including a 6-ounce sirloin and two made-from-scratch sides plus a choice of any Coca-Cola product, sweet tea/ice tea or coffee during lunch. Proof of service includes military or VA card, or discharge papers,” the restaurant chain said in a news release.

The deal is good from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at Texas Roadhouse restaurants at 16196 Jackson Creek Parkway in Monument and two locations in Colorado Springs:   3120 N. Powers Boulevard and 595 S. 8th Street.

The Texas Roadhouse offer is one of several freebies available for veterans Monday.
