Cotton Patch Cafe is honoring its local first responders Monday with a free entree.

The offer comes on National First Responders Day - Oct. 28 - a day honoring the men and women who serve as police officers, firefighters, EMTs and others who are first on scene during stressful or dangerous situations.

The restaurant - known for its home cooking - is providing first responders with a free entree up to $12.99.

Moving forward, first responders will also receive a 10% discount whenever they come into a Cotton Patch Cafe.
