All the 2019 Kids Eat Free Deals in the West Suburbs

Kids eat free deals make it more affordable for families to enjoy a special night out (and get a break from the pre-dinner scramble). This round-up of area restaurants with kids eat free specials will help you find a deal any night of the week!

Most restaurants require the purchase of an adult entree to score the deal. Even though I’ve recently verified restaurants’ offerings and restrictions, things change. It’s always a good idea to call ahead and confirm that the promotion is still valid.
