Restaurants Where Kids Eat for Free or Cheap

Here’s where kids can eat for FREE at national chains throughout the United States!

Saving Money While Dining Out

If you have children, you know that going out to eat can get expensive. However, as the primary chef around my home, I know it’s nice to have a night off from the kitchen.

I have been putting together a list, sending emails, and making phone calls to round up the restaurants currently offering a kids eat free promotion. Many local restaurants also have deals, so definitely ask around at your favorite places to see what specials are available.

TIP: While I verified these offers, the offers can change at any time and/or vary by location. Not all locations of these chains will participate as described below. Definitely call and double check before heading to the restaurant.
