Kids Eat Free (or almost!) in and around Austin

Have you ever taken your family out to eat and groaned upon seeing the huge bill, and the mostly full kid plates left in front of you?  Or do you have a little one who will just pick at their food no matter where it’s from, because it’s not just like “my macaroni!” or the nuggets were shaped wrong? Or maybe you have a kid who thinks he needs to order off the adult menu, so you pay adult prices, just for him to order his burger plain and dry – because he’s still two at heart…Or maybe, like me, all of these things have happened to you in just one delightful dining out experience. 

Well, thanks to Kids Eat Free (or almost) deals, you should be able to find a restaurant in or around Austin where your kids can eat free, any day of the week. Remember these deals are usually with a qualifying adult purchase, and are subject to change any time.  We’ve rounded up a big list of participating restaurants, and put them in order alphabetically by day of the week.  It’s always a good idea to call first to verify that the deal is still current.  Have fun expanding your kid’s dining experiences in a town famous for great food, and save some money while doing it!  ***Current as of June 2018***
