Cheap Eats for Families

A meal on the town that won't break the bank.

In this economy, everyone’s watching their wallet. That’s why finding restaurants that offer free or reduced meals for kids are such a bonanza.

The economy has definitely taken its toll on area restaurants. In updating this listing, we learned of a number of eateries that have either reduced or eliminated their kids eat free offers. A handful, including two corporate Perkins restaurants, have closed altogether.

That being said, there are still quite a few establishments offering free meals or great deals for feeding children under 12. We hope this will give you reason to enjoy a family meal together.
