IN HONOR OF THE MARINE CORPS BIRTHDAY AND VETERANS DAY, CAFE RIO MEXICAN GRILL OFFERS FREE MEALS ON NOVEMBER 10TH AND 11TH

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MANASSAS, November 7, 2011 -- On November 10th, U.S. Marines around the country will honor the creation of the Corps, started in 1775. This year, the day will be celebrated with the annual birthday ball, cake-cutting ceremony and… free burritos! That's correct, in order to commemorate the brave men and women of the Marine Corps, Cafe Rio Mexican Grill is offering free meals to all Marines, including veterans, on November 10, 2011 at the 7803 Sudley Rd. location in Manassas, VA.

The free meal celebration will continue on to the following day, November 11, 2011, in honor of Veterans Day. Cafe Rio Mexican Grill, one of the leading Manassas restaurants, will be offering free meals to all military personnel and veterans at the same Manassas, VA location. On both days, November 10th and 11th, there will be a donation jar next to the register, giving customers the opportunity to contribute to the Hope for the Warriors Foundation. The foundation will receive 100% of those donations collected.

"No amount of gratitude and celebration will ever repay the Marine Corps and veterans for everything they've done on behalf of this country," states Dave Gagnon, CEO of Cafe Rio Mexican Grill and former U.S. Marine. "However, giving a free meal to everyone who has been a part of that heroism is our way of showing appreciation. In addition, we want to bring more attention to the Hope for the Warriors Foundation who provides support to wounded warriors and their families. It has been our pleasure to work with them and support their mission since opening our first east coast location this past April. They treat every day like it is Veterans Day."

The Quick-Track Award is an honor limited to the very best restaurant performers in the nation and is based solely on customer reviews and dining experience.
