Have you ever planned to eat out and wondered whether the restaurant you were interested in visiting offers free Kid’s Meals or discounts? We’re excited to have put together The Master List of Kids Eat Free Place for the Capital District (Upstate), New York.
Kids Eat Free Places – Capital District, New York
Everybody’s trying to save a buck these days and trying to meal plan at home. But hey, sometimes you want to treat yourself to a decent meal at a restaurant.
Kids Eat Free specials have been around for years, traditionally used by sit down type restaurants to bring in customers. Lately, we are seeing more deals in some untraditional areas.
Consider these restaurants a win-win for the entire family: From Monday through Sunday, visit these popular chain restaurants like Ruby Tuesday, Chili’s, and Denny’s to get breakfast, lunch, or dinner for kids without even breaking out your wallet.
If you know of any local restaurants that participate in a program like this, please let us know and I will update accordingly.
Note: Restaurants may change these specials at any time, so please contact them before your visit to ensure their promotion is still current.
This list has been cultivated for Upstate New York. This list was updated last on 4/22/2021.
