Kids Eat free/cheap (Even MORE updates!)

The first week I put up my new list, I noted that I was doing so because I was frustrated by the fact that other online lists are TOTALLY outdated. I have tried to verify all the ones on this list. They have all been used by myself or a friend. However, many of the chain restaurants have deals that vary from store to store and restaurants change their promotions from time to time. So, to avoid the frustrations I have had, please call your local store before you head over to make sure they are participating in the kids eat free or cheap promotion! :)

Kids eat free:
  • Hyvee: Eat FREE on Thursdays with an adult meal purchase at any of the following eating locations in the store: Italian, Chinese Express, Kitchen. Dine in only. (one kids meal per adult meal purchased)
  • China Buffet: Tuesday kids eat free with adult meal purchase
  • Denny's: Night Varies by location 4-10 pm (I have not used this one since August, but it is listed on their website as available at different nights depending on location-you will wnat to call your local location to see what night they do)
  • Lone Star: Tuesday all day up to 2 free kids meals per adult meal purchase.
  • Spaghetti Works: Monday up to 2 free kids meals per adult meal purchased
  • Pepperjax Grill: Wednesday night 2 free kids meals per adult meal purchased (5-8pm)
  • Grisanti's Italian: Monday night
  • La Mesa: Thursday night One free kids meal per adult meal purchased. I know this is good at the location on 156th and Q but I do not know about the other locations.
  • Pizza Ranch: Tuesday looks like one kid per adult meal purchase
  • Texas Roadhouse: Mondays 4-10PM one kid eats free with purchase of each adult meal
  • ***NOTE-I hesitantly include this one because we have REPEATEDLY had TERRIBLE service at the Texas Roadhouse in West Omaha and we will NOT eat there again even with good food and Free kids night. However, a friend noted that her family enjoys the one in PAPILLION! So I include this deal with a warning about the West Omaha location (and FYI-when I wrote to them about the issues we have had over and over, they did not reply or care at all. That is why we don't eat there anymore!)***
  • Chick Fil A: Wednesday nights One free kids meal per adult combo meal (A friend told me that this is good in Utah locations on Wednesday. I do not know if our new Chick fil A in Omaha has a kids night or not).
  • HuHot: Night Varies by location Note that Kids 3 and under are FREE always, but in addition to that, MANY HuHot locations have a Kids night where kids under 11 eat free with adult meal purcahse. (Sadly Omaha doesn't anymore) Click on the restaurant name to see if your local HuHot has a kids night, and which night it is!
  • O'Charley's: Day Varies by location 2 kids free per adult meal (This one is not in Nebraska but in lots of other states East of us!)
  • A+ Buffet and Mongolian GrillThursdays all day Kids ages 3-10 one free per adult meal purchase
  • Buffalo Wings and Rings: Mondays  (looks like one free per adult meal)
  • IKEA: Kids eat free on Tuesday in Utah (Thanks Aubrie) (also I noticed at their site that Mondays there is FREE breakfast until 11 am and Fridays you can get a hotdog and a soda for only $1)
  • Cafe Rio: My friend Catherine told me that Kids can get a free cheese Quesadilla! Awesome! (I LOVE and MISS Cafe Rio!)
  • Salgado's Mexican Grill in Omaha (around 9-th and Fort). Kids eat free Wednesdays (Thanks Chrissy!)
  • Heartland BBQ at 5402 NW Radial Highway has free Kids Meals (I think every day?! I will check on that to be sure) (Thanks Chrissy)NW Radial Highway | Omaha, Nebraska 68104
