Half-off food for "those who protect"

The new menu at Concord's Branchview Tavern keeps the popular pretzel ham melt and prime rib, but adds more appetizers, salads and sandwiches. Fried green beans, onion straws, chicken salad with spicy pecans, ribs, fish and chips, funnel cake fries and more share space on the new list. 970 Branchview Drive, by Village Fudge; 704-785-8485.

Also new: 50 percent food discounts for area military (both active and retired), firefighters, police officers and members of the sheriff's department: "We are supportive of those who protect our community," said owner Bill Enderlein. He asks that folks not in uniform show a current ID when ordering.
