Kids Eat Free – A Day by Day List

Kids Eat Free

We decided to do something a little different when it comes to those “Kid’s Eat Free” lists.  Instead of sorting alphabetically by restaurant, we sorted them by day of the week.  I mean, isn’t that how real people make plans?  So print this out and put it next to the family calendar to easily plan a cheap(er) night out.

The Rules

Yes, there’s always a catch, so read the restrictions below.

Age – Most of the offers are for those 12 and under, though some specify 10 or 11 as the maximum age.
Purchase Requirements – You must purchase at least one adult meal. Plus, you’re usually limited to one free meal per each adult meal.
Hours – Most start at 4pm though several are all day.
Other Offers – You can’t combine other offers or discounts when getting free kids’ meals.
ParticipationLocal stores can opt out of the kid’s free specials, so check before calling. Local owners may also offer freebies on additional days, too, so that’s another thing to check.
