Snellville Businesses to Honor Local Veterans

Several Snellville restaurants are offering free meals and other specials for veterans and members of the armed forces.

Today through Nov. 12, 10% of all gift card sales at Texas Roadhouse will be donated to the Snellville Veterans Memorial fund.

With a $500 purchase, Texas Roadhouse will purchase a brick in the memorial on your behalf.   You can use it to honor or remember a friend or family member, or use it to thank veterans on behalf of you family, according to Texas Roadhouse manager Sam Roper. 

On the 12th, Texas Roadhouse will open early for lunch. All veterans eat free from the "Early Dine" menu from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m.

"Sam Roper always gives back to our community," said Mayor Pro Tem Tom Witts. "He holds an annual Golf Tournament that raises thousands of dollars for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, he annually donates to the Give Hunger the Boot campaign, and now he has turned his sights on helping the Snellville Veterans Memorial."

"I don't think people realize just how much Sam and Amy Roper gives back to Snellville," he added.

Members of the VFW will be at Texas Roadhouse for lunch on Monday with more information on the Memorial.    

Other area restaurants are also offering free meals to veterans on Veterans Day, including Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse.
