Kids Eat Free

It’s summer, the kids are off from school, and your daily spending has certainly increased. Between paying for summer camps, weekend getaways, and day-to-day activities to keep everyone entertained and happy, we know how expensive it can get. Cutting down wherever you can makes a huge difference, so we’re here to help!

Lucky for us, restaurants such as Skyline Chili, Waffle House, and Fricker’s offer deals on kids meals every day during the week! Skyline has a deal where you get one free kids meal with the purchase of an adult meal for kids 12 and younger. Waffle House offers a free kids meal with the purchase of an adult meal totaling more than $6. And finally, Fricker’s lets kids eat free all day with the purchase of an adult meal (kid’s beverage is not included, however).

For some of our other favorites, days and times do vary. Here is a guide to a few of the best deals each day and be sure to check with your favorite location to learn about any other promotions they may have going on!
