50+ Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free (or Cheap!)

Eating out is so convenient yet SO Expensive for the whole family! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of 50+ restaurants where kids eat free (or cheap!) For the most part, these offers usually mean a free item from the kid’s menu with a paying adult. This may or may not include a beverage. Ages vary by restaurant and are noted. I can’t stress enough how important it is to check with your local restaurant to make sure they’re participating before you go.
