Got Hungry Kids? We Have Kids Eat FREE Solutions!

Kids Eat Free in Houston. Logo: Houston Moms. A photograph of a child eating pasta. We rarely went out to eat when the kids were young. It was such a hassle trying to keep tabs on everyone. Between setting up the special clip-on high chair for the baby, helping kids use the bathroom or wash hands, and settling arguments over where people should sit, I was done before I had begun. The kids always had a great time but it felt like all I did was bark out orders in between bites.

“Put those salt and pepper shakers down right now!”

“No, you don’t need to move seats. Your seat is just fine.”

“Baby, please stop caressing the underside of the table with your hands.”

As they got older, it got easier and eating out became a fun treat that we could all finally enjoy. It’s great for the adults since we don’t have to cook or clean after a meal. And the kids love the change of scenery and the general festive atmosphere of being out somewhere. The best part though is that many restaurants have promotions where kids eat free or at a discount on certain nights!

We’ve rounded up a list of places that offer kids eat free {or cheap!} promotions. Before you head out to grab a great meal deal for your family, remember to call ahead and confirm that the promotion is still valid. Also, many establishments will put an age limit to a kids meal deal and/or how many you can get per family so be sure to check the details.

Vicky grew up in Miami, graduated from Boston University, and moved to New York City to work in advertising. She and her husband then had a marvelous adventure abroad, which included the birth of their older son. After almost four years in Beijing, they headed to her husband's hometown of Houston. Their daughter made her debut a few months later and their younger son joined the ranks several years after that. Vicky loves family life and all the adventures, laughs, and lessons that come with it. Though busy raising three kids, she tries to sneak time to tend to her tiny urban garden and come up with ideas to continually make her home a haven. Vicky has been slightly obsessed with raising monarch butterflies in recent years. She’s a writer and communications consultant who dreams of days where she can simply sit by the pool reading a book and drinking lemonade.
