Kids eat free” is one of my favorite phrases. Restaurants that offer these weekly events will forever have my gratitude. And because I understand that convenience is queen during busy weeknights, here’s a handy little guide to all the places kids eat free every day of the week.

 

A word to the dining wise

PLEASE be sure to double-check with your local franchise before assuming these deals apply nationwide (in nearly every case, the fine print for these deals states the location can change their policies without warning).

Also, the actual day of the week and times can change without prior notice. See? It’s always best to call ahead and confirm your local restaurant’s kids eat free policy before showing up.

 

Using other deals or coupons

Be aware that, in most cases, kids eat free promotions don’t let you stack deals — you can’t use any other coupons or deal at the same time.

 

Kids Eat Free deals by day of the week

If you find other deals not listed here, or your local franchise features kids eat free on a different day or time each week, please tell us in the comments section below so others in your area can be aware.
