  1. We went to Monelli’s today. Thursday, and the manager said they have never had this policy. Which is annoying because we have been here before and they honored it. They did honor it today for us after we showed them this but said it has never been thier policy.

  2. Thanks for this! Just took my kids to Big E’s on the Beltline and it was 2 free kids meals per 1 adult! If you get the kids pizza, it is big enough for 2 little ones to share. My kids are 4, 5, and 6 and it took all 3 of them to get through the pizza and we had so many leftovers 🙂 Minion Mondays is what they call it

  3. Big E’s sports grill on the E. Beltline has Kids Eat Free on Monday. I believe the menu said 2 kids free per 1 adult meal.

  4. Wednesdays-Rise Pies at the Tanger Outlets, does a free kids pizza per each adult pizza or large salad purchased. We get our pizzas to-go and walk around the corner to the outside/covered playground/picnic tables to enjoy them there.

  5. Steak and Shake now has kids eat free all day, every day. 1 free kids meal with every $9.00 purchased for kids 12 and younger (dine in only).

  6. The Pizza Ranch in Hudsonville will be changing their Kids Eat Free Night to Tuesday (if they haven’t already done so) once their remodeling is completed to align with the other locations.

  7. At The Cheshire Kitchen (formally known as The Cheshire Grill) kids eat FREE Saturday nights 4-7pm with a purchase of an adult meal at full price!

  8. Maxine’s is a small hometown family restaurant serving good food, breakfast all day, & kids eat free tues-fri with each adult meal. Kids meals include drinks & are decent portions.

    1. Jenny,
      Most restaurants automatically apply the kids discounts, but it is always a good idea to double check with the restaurant before you go. Deals are up to the discretion of restaurant management and may change at any time. In addition, this post relies on reader feedback in order to keep it updated. Thank you!

  9. Bob Evans no.longer has kids eat for free on Tuesday nights. They have a kid craft area instead on Tuesday. Last time we went we asked for a bag for our left overs to go into and their bags even advertise for kids eat for free on Tuesdays. And they still wouldn’t honor it. This was the location on Walker Ave.

    1. Jill Clarin

      Thanks for the tip Carrie! Bob Evans still offers the promotion at the other two GR locations (Cascade and Gaines Township), but not at the location on Walker Ave.

  10. The Main Street Pub in Allendale has free kids meals with an adult entrée purchase Sun-Wed. Kid’s meals include a drink and ice cream for dessert! It’s one of our new go-to spots.

  11. Mcdonalds kids meals are 1.99 on Tues eve at several locations. Also Dennys has same deal kids eat free (2 per adult) on Saturdays too.
