On Monday, Nov. 11, America’s #1 buffet and grill is inviting all active duty and retired U.S. military personnel to visit their nearest Golden Corral to enjoy a free dinner buffet and beverage from 5-9 p.m.
“We are extremely grateful for our military service men and women who defend our country and protect our freedoms,” said Lance Trenary, president and chief executive officer of Golden Corral. “Our 35,000 associates of Golden Corral across the country look forward to this night every year when we get to thank our active and retired military guests personally.”
