The army veteran who was denied a free meal at Chili's on Veterans Day is getting HOOKED UP by Mark Cuban ... who just offered the guy 2 season tickets to Mavs games for the rest of the season!
Ernest Walker's story made national news -- he was dining at Chili's in Texas when the manager questioned his military service and took away his food. Walker recorded the incident on his phone.
Chili's eventually apologized -- but now, we've learned Cuban heard about the story and wanted to personally honor the vet ... so the Mavs owner made the following offer:
-- 2 season tickets to the Dallas Mavs games for the rest of the season
-- 10 bonus tickets to Wednesday night's game so Walker can bring 10 more vets!
-- 10 bonus tickets to most Mavs home games to give out to other vets and people in need
-- Cuban agreed to donate money to Ernest's campaign to feed 1 million soldiers
We spoke to Walker who says he's pumped about the offer and expressed his gratitude to Cuban when they talked on the phone earlier Wednesday.
