Military Appreciation Night FAQs
Golden Corral© is proud of the U.S. military members who defend our country and our rights. We honor them every year with a special thank you dinner on our Military Appreciation Night. As of 2019, we have served nearly 6 million free meals to our active duty and retired military heroes. But our commitment does not stop there. Over the past 19 years, Golden Corral© restaurants and their guests together have raised over $17 million dollars for Disabled American Veterans.

Our promotional free meal card will allow guests to return any time within the next six months.
