      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!

    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.
