JJ's Red Hots Salutes Local Veterans and Troops with and Unlimited Free Meal on Veterans DayJJ’s Red Hots is putting a no limits sign on its menu for our nation’s veterans and troops, with a free meal including unlimited hot dogs, sausages, sides and non-alcoholic drinks all day on Veterans Day, Friday, November 11.

“Our veterans and troops’ dedication to America is limitless so we felt this was we wanted to for them in return on their special day,” said JJ’s owner and proprietor Jonathan Luther. “We are honored to treat them to a free meal. It’s our not-so-small way of saying ‘Thanks” for all they do for the greatest country on Earth.”

“Veterans and troops hold a special place in our hearts and we look forward to welcoming them with open arms and treating them to a no-catches free meal,” said Brandy Newton, JJ’s director of marketing and brand development. “It’s always one of the best days of the year for us because we get to thank them in person while they enjoy free food.”

To receive the free meal, military guests should plan to provide proof of military service, which include U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card, U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card, Current Leave and Earnings Statement, Veterans Organization Card, DD214, Citation or Commendation. Offer is valid for dine-in only.

JJ’s recently celebrated the four-year anniversary of its Dilworth location in Charlotte and its three-year anniversary for its restaurant in Ballantyne. The brand has been on an all-out winning streak since its inception in 2012. The brand raised national eyebrows for two years running by being honored by Fast Casual in its annual Top 100 Movers & Shakers list.  JJ’s is the smallest chain to ever make the list and the only Hot Dog/Sausage concept to receive the honor. JJ’s also swept all of Charlotte’s Best Hot Dog awards in 2015 including the Charlotte Observer’s Readers’ Choice Best of Charlotte 2015 award for Best Hot Dog, And JJ’s ‘Char Heel’ dog won Charlotte Magazine’s BOB award for Best Southern Hot Dog.

Most recently, JJ’s was named by Tabelog as One of The 10 Most Unique Hotdog Joints in America and was cited by Spoon University as The 50 Best Foods to Eat in Charlotte Before You Die, as one of 10 Hot Dog Joints Across the State by North Carolina’s Our State magazine and nabbed Creative Loafing’s Readers’ Pick for Best Hot Dog in the 2016 Best of Charlotte poll.

JJ’s Red Hots is the premier purveyor of “hand-crafted” char-grilled hot dogs and sausages with two locations and several portable vehicles in the Charlotte metropolitan area. The restaurant concept is built on solid, hardworking values and is modeled after venerable establishments like Ted’s in Buffalo, NY, Gene and Jude’s in Chicago, and many others. Still, JJ’s is a true American original featuring house-made, scratch prepared sides and toppings served alongside time tested, revered American brands like Weber’s Mustard, Martin’s Rolls, and Coca-Cola. Perhaps most proudly, JJ’s Red Hots serves smokehouse hot dogs from Sahlen’s Meat Packing Company in Buffalo, NY. Sahlen’s is a 146-year-old company that remains family owned and operated, and makes, in our opinion, the best hot dogs in the world.
