Kids Eat Free!


Free!  No word sounds sweeter to my big ears than "free!" Except maybe when you say "free meal!" Then I'm off the charts!  Because you see, free dinner makes me a dangerous lady with some money in my pocket; keep up!  Thank you, Bruno.

I surveyed the Route 1 Corridor for you, my lovelies, and came up with this list of nearby restaurants where you get free (or practically free) lunch/dinner for your young'ns when you purchase an adult's meal. Some are a wee bit beyond the Corridor as I know some of you like to wander beyond Route 1, on occasion.  And after some therapy, I've realized that that's OK; we can still be friends. Just not my inner circle. 😆

Along with a Fendi bag and a bad attitude, this Kids Eat Free list is all you'll need to get yourself in a good mood.  Help me get the word out, help some families out and share this with your fab social network!

Sincerely yours,
Around Your Way Girl.

*If you know of other local restaurants that offer free/cheap kids' meals, please let me know.  Always happy to update!
**Call before you go as these offers change frequently. And, if your meal/service was good and you're in a position to tip a little extra to account for the free meal(s), go for it. This food service employee from days of yore thanks you!
***LL Cool J and Bruno Mars weave-ins free of charge!  :)
