San Antonio bars and restaurants are getting into the Veterans Day spirit on Wednesday, serving up meal deals and freebies for vets and active duty service members.

Here's a roundup of those offers.



Bowl & Barrel: This Texas-based venue offers 15 bowling lanes, modern American fare and a beer hall — as well as a free burger to all vets with a valid ID on the holiday. The B&B website suggests that those planning to treat the vet in their life to a round of bowling make reservations prior to arriving. Bowl & Barrel, 17619 La Cantera Pkwy Ste 102, bowlandbarrel.com.

The General Public: The extensive booze offerings at The General Public include six variations on the Old Fashioned and an impressive whiskey list. Any one of these could be the perfect preamble to a hearty burger, which vets can score for free with a valid ID. The General Public, 17619 La Cantera Parkway, Suite 102, thegenpublic.com.
   
The Rustic: This north SA eatery is offering a free Rustic Burger — a beef patty topped with house brisket, white cheddar, green chili and grilled onions — to any veteran or active-duty military members who shows valid ID. The Rustic, 17619 La Cantera Parkway, Ste 204, therustic.com.

HopDoddy: Hopdoddy locations are offering a free Classic Burger — with or without cheese — to all vets and active-duty service members for dine-in or takeout. Either way, they must present military ID or arrive in uniform to claim the free burger. Hopdoddy, Multiple locations, hopdoddy.com.

Fish City Grill: Texas-based Fish City Grill is offering a free entree — up to a $19.99 value — to all veterans and active duty military service members this Wednesday. As expected, be prepared to show valid ID. Fish City Grill, Multiple locations, fishcitygrill.com.



Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden: As part of an ongoing campaign, Boiler House at the Pearl will offer a complimentary Patriot Burger, featuring an 8-ounce chili-infused smoked pork patty, queso Oaxaca, grilled pineapple, poblano peppers, onions, fresh cilantro and achiote mayonnaise on a toasted bolillo bun. The burger will be free to all veterans with a valid ID on the holiday. Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden, 312 Pearl Pkwy Building 3, boilerhousesa.com.

MAX’s Wine Dive: As part of the same campaign mentioned above, MAX’s Wine Dive will feature an entire chile relleno stuffed with white cheddar cheese and braised short ribs atop an 8-ounce beef patty. A cheesy mornay sauce, avocado and cilantro will finish the monster sandwich, and — with valid military ID —it's free to vets. MAX’s Wine Dive, 340 E Basse Road, Suite 101, maxswinedive.com
