As much as I love taking a break from the kitchen and going out to eat, we rarely do. After all, a dinner out can add up quickly when you have kids! When we do eat out, it’s usually when I come across a kids’ special such as a free children’s meal or $3 entree. Fortunately, you no longer have to call every restaurant in town to find these deals because the website Kids Meal Deals puts them all in one easy-to-find spot!

What is Kids Meal Deals?

Kids Meal Deals is the nation’s largest database of kids-eat-free restaurants. The site, which allows you to search by location, will locate restaurants in your area that offer free kids’ meals, as well as give you all of the specific details about the offer. You’re able to find which day of the week it’s available, if it’s dine-in only, and if any other purchase is required.

What kinds of restaurants does Kids Meal Deals feature?

Kids Meal Deals has a database of nearly 50 thousand restaurants and continues to add new locations daily. The restaurants that they feature include everything from casual, family-chain restaurants to locally-owned dives and just about everything in between! With a quick search using my zip code I found 73 restaurants that offer free kids’ meals within 15 miles, including Denny’s, Freebirds, Rockfish, Dickey’s and many more. In fact, I found a few of my favorite local spots on the list that I never knew offered kid specials!

Does Kids Meal Deals have an app?

Yes! If you’re on the go and looking for a place to stop and eat, there’s an app for that! Kids Meal Deals has a mobile app available for Apple, Android and Blackberry devices, all of which are free. The app will automatically find promotions near you using your GPS or by inputting your zip code, allowing you to browse today’s offers and find restaurant details such as their location and phone number.

Do they offer any other ways to find deals?

Yes! Kids Meal Deals also has a blog on their website, as well as a Facebook page that’s updated with the latest kids-eat-free coupons and deals. You can also sign up for their monthly newsletter, which features the newest restaurants to offer free kids’ meals as well as provides tips and strategies for saving money when eating out. Next time you find yourself wondering what’s for dinner, give yourself a break from cooking and treat your kids to a nice meal out—for free!
