CEDAR HILL, Texas – The parent company of Chili's said it wants to make things right after a veteran had his free meal taken away on Veteran's Day.
Ernest Walker posted a video to Facebook on Friday of a manager taking away his meal at a Chili's in the Dallas suburb of Cedar Hill. The Army vet writes that the meal was taken away after another diner raised questions about the uniform Walker was wearing. Walker said the manager took his meal even after he showed him his military ID and discharge papers.
Walker said he bought the fatigues he was wearing after he was discharged as a tribute to his service.
Brinker International, which owns Chili's, told KDFW-TV that it's taking the matter "very seriously."
Walker's lawyer was set to meet with the company Monday.
