Restaurants where kids eat free (or almost free)

Where you can have a fun family night out to dinner without breaking the bank



Many parents — or anyone for that matter — are always in search of a great deal when dining out. With kids, though, it can be a challenge.

However, there are some restaurants that cater especially to families, as they provide value-added offerings for kids (generally up to 12 years of age). So for savvy parent shoppers out there, here is a sampling of restaurant specials in the state’s most populated regions that are sure to make you (and your kids) smile.
