Kids eat free!

S-T-R-E-T-C-H That Dollar! Restaurants where Kids Eat Free!


In these tough times when anything free is slowly becoming extinct, with everyone working harder and the economy struggling, there are still a group of restaurants dedicated to serving free meals to kids. Most of these places offer free food to kids with some restrictions, particularly the age of the child, specific days and the ratio of purchasing adults to the number of kid’s meals required.

Offers may vary by location and season or days. Offers are subject to change; be sure to verify information before planning a trip.
