The promotion runs while supplies last at all participating locations. To participate in the deal, customers may pair one of the 12-featured entrees with mouth-watering BBQ ribs. With each “BBQ Double Up Deal” purchased, $1 will be donated to the Mobile USO program, up to $35,000!  Also during this period, with a purchase of an adult entrée, kids 10 and under eat free at all participating locations (see details below).

“We are excited about the Iron Skillet® Restaurants promotion to benefit the troops through our Mobile USO program,” said Sloan Gibson, the USO’s president and CEO. “We appreciate their commitment to connecting the nation to our mission of serving the troops and their families.”
