Of course, being a Mommy of twins, I LOVE when I can get some good deals on taking them out to eat! I saw Save with Dave the other day, and Dave gave us 3 places for our list… I thought that was awesome, and decided to do a little more research and expand the list!
Here’s a list of places in the Sacramento and Surrounding areas that offer free meals for kids!!! Researching this made me super hungry.. I think I may try talking Daddy into a few trips out to restaurants in the next few weeks.. After all, I do have to try these places… Right?!?!
I did call around and verify these deals, but, as always, I recommend calling them before you go, just in case…
At Chick-fil-a, Thursday is free kid’s dinner night from 5pm to 9pm. The kids also get free Arts & Crafts to keep them busy and a free Ice Cream!!! Who doesn’t like a free Ice Cream!?!?! You must purchase an Adult Combo in order to receive this deal! On Fridays, however, they offer any kid’s menu breakfast free, with NO additional purchase necessary!
At Denny’s locations kids age 10 and under eat free every Tuesday night, and in some locations, they eat free on Saturday nights too! From 4pm to 10pm! You can get up to two kid’s entrees from the kid’s menu free per every one regularly priced adult entree purchase.
At El Torito Mexican Restaurant in Sacramento kids eat free on their Birthday! To join their Birthday Club, you can fill out a form on the kid’s menu on any of your visits, and you will receive a certificate, and Birthday Club pack in the mail you can bring with you on your birthday to get your free meal!
At all Fresh Choice locations, kids age 2 & under eat free with the purchase of any adult meal. They also have a great discount rate for children ages 3-5… $1.99 with the purchase of an adult meal. Can’t beat that! Fresh, healthy, and affordable!
Goodfella’s Express Italian located in the awesome city of Folsom, Ca has a great program as well! Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays from 5-8pm. Anything off the kid’s meal (regularly $2.99) is free… Although it is not required, they do encourage the purchase of an Adult Meal… Hey.. the whole family can enjoy some great food. With a menu like theirs, who wouldn’t want to try it out!?! I think I see another day trip to the outlets and dinner coming on!
I checked out Hacienda del Rio’s website and sure enough, right there at the top of their website they advertise that kids eat free every Tuesday Night from 4:30-8:30pm. They are also located in Folsom! Here is a link to their menu as well.
At all IHOP locations in Sacramento, and surrounding, I’ve found that kids, 12 and under, eat free every Tuesday from 4pm to 2am! You can choose anything from their kid’s menu, and purchase of an adult entree is required!
At Il Fornaio in down town Sacramento, if you take your kids in on a Sunday evening, you can exchange the kids’ doodling on the back of their menu for their famous Il Fornaio Cookies!!! Your aspiring artist will love the treat for their art work, and you’ll love that they’re keeping busy while you peruse their awesome menu!
At Strings Italian Cafe locations in the area, kids eat free on Sunday and Monday! One kid per adult entree purchased, at anytime during their open hours! Daddy and I have been here several times, since we have one super close to our house. The food is always DEEE-LISH, and the service is always awesome!
At Riverside Clubhouse, on Mondays and Tuesdays kids eat free w/purchase of adult entree!
I hope you are able to find some great places to try out on this list! I’ve been to quite a few of them, and loved them! If you find any other locations in the Sacramento, and surrounding areas that need to be on this list, please tell me so that I may share the wisdom with others! After all, who wouldn’t like to save a little bit of change here and there! Bon Appetite!
