Where Kids Eat Free in Chicago’s Western Suburbs – 2018

Stuck in a dinner rut? Venture out to try a new restaurant without the worry of a hefty bill. Here is an updated list of Kids Eat Free deals in the western suburbs. To receive the free kids menu items, nearly all restaurants require the purchase of an adult entree. Even though I’ve recently verified restaurants’ offerings and restrictions, it’s always a good idea to call ahead and confirm the promotion is still valid.
