KIDS NIGHT! (Help me Build this List)

Kids Eat Free Title


I don’t know about you all, but it breaks my tightwad-heart to pay $5-7 for my two-year-old to throw a kids’ meal on the floor or style his (or my) hair with it! My 5 yr old is a different story. He eats the 3 chicken nuggets that $7 bought and then wants mine, too! The ridiculous prices of kids’ meals (and EVEN KIDS’ DRINKS) are the best way to bust your budget when dining out. For that reason, we don’t eat out much at all unless the kids eat free. So, I want to provide a list of local restaurants that have Kids’ Night or where kids can eat free or close to it. If you know of any others to add to this list, please feel free to comment or email me so that I can keep it current. This list will be its own category and will be categorized by day of the week. Here is a starting point, help me add to it, please!

    Went to Texas Roadhouse tonight and they have ALWAYS had kids night on Monday and tonight not only did they charge us full price they acted like they had never had a kids discount night! I know it was Lancaster night and they were slammed but our normal kids night $46 meal ended up being $70… not a happy camper!
