Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free

Get Ready to Load Up Your Plates! 20 Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free

I'm going to just cut right to the chase: kids are incredibly expensive. In fact, having just one child can cost parents an average of $10,000 per year! So, given the fortune we spend on things like clothes, school supplies, and snacks, it's a great thing (and welcome relief) that so many restaurants offer free dining for kids. If you're not taking advantage of this yet, load up the car (and those plates) to get some seriously delicious free meals. The following 20 restaurants offer great deals for families when you want to dine out. Just make sure to double check with the restaurant first, because not all deals are nationwide, and others will vary by location. Most restaurants also require the child to be under the age of 12, and an adult meal must be purchased in order for the free kids meal to apply. Enjoy!
