The dining experience for parents can sometimes be too expensive to manage. Even with special kids’ menu prices, feeding a family of four or more can be tough on the wallet. Many restaurants in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area have “kids eat free” specials, or kids eat cheap, on certain nights of the week. Here are some restaurants where you can take your family and get free or very cheap meals for the kids.
Gold Star Chili (locations throughout the area): At Gold Star Chili locations kids ages 10 and under eat free on Tuesday nights. You can receive one free meal from the kids menu for each adult ordering a combo meal. This special works for dine-in only.
Mike and Jimmy’s Chophouse Grill (Crestview Hills): At Mike and Jimmy’s, you can get up to two free kids’ meals for each adult entrée purchased on Mondays. Rarely can you find a restaurant where you can get two kids meals for free for just one adult meal ordered.
Fazoli’s (locations throughout the area): On Tuesdays from 5-8 PM, Fazoli’s restaurants have kids’ night where kids can enjoy making a craft, hanging out with other kids, and eating off of the kids menu for just $.99.
Lone Star Steakhouse (Florence, Deerfield Township): Kids eat free off of the kids menu at Lone Star Steakhouse restaurants on Tuesdays. You can get two free kids meals for each adult entrée purchased.
Captain D’s (locations throughout the area): Thursday is kid’s night at Captain D’s seafood restaurant. Kids’ meals cost just $.99 with each adult meal purchased. This special is for dine-in only.
Golden Corral (locations throughout the area): At Golden Corral, children ages 3 and under can eat from the buffet for free every day of the week. While a one year old may not be able to benefit from this much, a three year old could do some damage.

Skyline Chili (locations throughout the area): Many Skyline Chili restaurants in the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky area offer specials where kids eat free on certain nights of the week. Check your local Skyline for details and nights.

Remember to call ahead to any restaurant where you have heard there is a “kids eat free,” or kids eat cheap, deal going on. Specials and prices are always subject to change so make sure you do your homework before you head out. Word of mouth is the best advertisement for any “kids eat free” deal so keep your eyes open and employ your friends and family to do the same.
