Many working families simply can’t afford to dine out with kids in tow. Even moderately-priced meals can cost a bundle by the time you multiply the price times four, five or more. But restaurants that offer free meals for the kids give Mom and Dad a break from the kitchen and provide a fun family experience at an affordable rate. We provided a list just a couple months ago, and was so popular we’ve now brought back an even more comprehensive kids-eat-free summary to help budget-conscious parents throughout the U.S. have a night off from the kitchen without breaking the bank.
