Thrifty Tip: Kids Eat Free Restaurants

Posted on February 6th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

One of the main reasons we don’t go out to eat very much is that it can be very expensive. Things add up quickly, even with the little ones ordering from the Little People menu. It ends up feeling more expensive if they don’t eat what they ordered from their Little People menu. Yes, that happens. So, it just ends up being easier, less expensive and healthier to eat at home. However, that also means that it’s more work for…yours truly. So, the list below is one that I will be sure to pin onto a board over on Pinterest because I want to have this reference around at all times…especially on the weekends! I’m sure you will, too. Where your children can eat free. (Of course, be sure to check with your local restaurant to make sure that it’s not just a regional offer.)

Kids Eat Free

Posted on December 12th, 2011 by Discount Debbie

Yesterday a friend asked my family out to lunch after church. They said, “Let’s go to Qdoba because kids eat free on Sundays.” I had no idea! How could I not know? I am a Thrifty Diva after all. So today I’ve made it my mission to find restaurants that commonly let kids eat free. Always check with your local chain because they may not participate. Here are some that I found.

Most Applebees have a day of the week that kids can eat free. All you have to do is buy one adult entree and they eat for nothing!

Denny’s will let two kids eat for free on Tuesdays with the purchase of one adult entree.

Same thing goes for Lonestar Steakhouse. On Tuesdays, buy one adult entree and two children eat for free!

At Shoney’s kids under 4 eat free everyday.

From 4pm – 8pm on Mondays at IHOP kids ages 12 and under eat free. It includ 1 Kids’ Menu item per Adult entree (Drink NOT incl).

Monday’s at Quiznos kids 12 and under get one free Kidz Meal with the purchase of an Adullt Entree.

Tuesday’s are Family Fun Night at Chik Fil A. You get a free kids meal per combo meal purchased from 5:30pm-7:30pm.

Saturday’s kids eat free at Steak and Shake. Get one kids combo free when adult entree of $9 or more is purchased.
