Veterans Day is this Sunday, November 11th and observed on Monday 11/12. We celebrate Veterans Day to give thanks to the brave men and women who protect our freedom in the armed services. What better way to celebrate the Veterans in your life than with delicious Bites around San Diego County, with military discounts that keep you from breaking the bank. Whether your Veteran likes sushi, pizza, or Italian – We have the perfect recommendation for you!
Everyone loves a buffet, but a buffet with a military discount is even better. 100s Seafood Grill Buffet is located in Mission Valley right off of the 8 near Bully’s, a staple in the area. You’ve probably driven past 100s Seafood Grill Buffet a million times, but this Veterans Day take the time to see what the buzz is about. Stop in for Lobster, Snow Crab Legs, Oyster, Jumbo Shrimp, Mussel, Tuna, Scallop, Salmon, Crawfish, Clam, Squid, and Sushi. And that’s just the seafood! 100s also offers an assortment of meat, salad, fruit and dessert options. Don’t forget to take 10% off with your military ID.
A little known Rosencrans St. gem, Maki Maki Sushi is fresh and extremely affordable. With all specialty rolls under $10, you will be hard pressed to find better sushi at this price. Maki Maki isn’t just cheap, it’s really good. We recommend starting your meal with Garlic Edamame and a cup of hot Miso Soup, before digging into their famous Pokie roll. Our personal favorite is the Red Dragon roll, which is filled with crab and shrimp tempura, and topped with spicy tuna, crunchy flakes, spicy mayo, and eel sauce. Stop in during happy hour from 5 pm to 7 pm for $3.95 appetizers and discounted drinks. And of course, always take 10% off with valid military ID.
Think Chipotle, but with pizza, and you have Pieology! The fast-casual chain is the perfect way for everyone in your party to order exactly what they want. Start with the crust and work your way through choosing your sauce, cheese, protein, and toppings. Pieology is completely customizable and there’s no best way to create what you want. If you’re struggling to create that perfect pie, you can choose one of their chef-inspired recipes. Meat lovers will like the Butchers Choice, a red sauce pie with pepperoni, sausage, and meatballs. Vegetarians go nuts for the Zesty Artichoke, which is topped with roasted red peppers, marinated artichokes, red onion, mozzarella, parmesan, and fresh basil. Don’t forget your military ID for 20% off your order.
From the award-winning Legacy Brewing Company, Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen pairs great food with great beer. Their menu includes American favorites and south of the border inspired fare for carnivores and vegetarians alike. We love the Spicy Burger, a half-pound Angus Chuck ground beef seasoned and topped with red pepper cream, Serrano chili, avocado and provolone cheese on a brioche bun. And if you’ve yet to try an Impossible Burger, they dress theirs with lettuce, Tomato, Onion, and your choice of cheese, served with sweet potato fries. As if the menu wasn’t good enough, all active duty and veteran military receive 20% off.
If you’re over in Mission Valley don’t forget to stop in for a meal at O’s American Kitchen. This American-Italian inspired restaurant will not disappoint with its expansive menu of sandwiches, pasta, pizza, and salad. If you’re with a group, you can order one of their bundles for two, four, or six people. We recommend one of the Twice Baked Pastas, choose between bacon, chicken & broccoli carbonara, Italian sausage & cream tomato or premium vegetarian. All options served with breadsticks that would make Olive Garden jealous. If you’re taking it easy on the carbs, regulars love the Ribs & Chicken, which includes two baby back ribs and 1/4 lemon or BBQ chicken. Enjoy all of this with 20% off for military members!
