Kids Eat Free Places – Capital District New York

Everybody’s trying to save a buck these days. 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.  As a side note, based on your regions FREE nights may vary, so please call ahead to confirm.

This list has been cultivated for Upstate New York. This list was updated last on 1/27/2020.
