Kids Eat Free ~ or Really, Really Cheap!

Every Family deserves a night out every once in a while! For a family with children this can mean an expensive trip.  Here is a list of chains and franchises nationwide for “KIDS EAT FREE” (or at least really cheap). For most restaurants if you can go during the week you can save big bucks on kid’s meals. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday seems to be the most popular for free deals.  Many locations and regions vary on their policies and days so I highly recommend calling ahead before you pile everyone into the minivan. So go ahead and be their hero, treat your family, save big bucks, and tell them the Savings Guru sent you!
