Taking the whole family out to eat can get expensive, quick. The same little ones that can’t stomach another bite of vegetables will eat like linebackers at restaurants! Having kids doesn’t mean spending hundreds of dollars eating out. Kids eat free deals are one of the most popular restaurant promotions around. The only downside is keeping up with the restaurants that offer these deals and when they offer them. That’s where we come in! Welcome to EatDrinkDeals’ Ultimate Guide to Kids Eat Free Restaurant Deals.
In our guide, each deal is listed by the name of the restaurant, followed by the kids eat free deal, and the requirements to redeem. For example, kids eat free deals are generally only one or two days a week at a given restaurant, and oftentimes you’ll need to purchase an adult entree to get a free kids meal. We only list kids eat free deals that are verified from restaurant sources, such as their website or social media pages. We won’t post deals that we can’t verify, but for big restaurant chains you still may have particular locations that won’t participate.
