Small Savings

For many parents, a kids-eat-free deal practically inspires giddiness. It combines two rare treats: a night off from cooking and a chance to save some money. So, here's our gift to exhausted parents far and wide: 45 restaurants where kids can eat free. These offers come and go regularly, and the best place to find current deals is usually the restaurant's social media. It's also a good idea to call ahead of time to verify a deal is being offered, because offers may vary by location.
