      Yes they do – I believe it is Monday or Tuesday. Check with your location.

      Denny’s offers free kids meals (not drinks) M-Thurs

      • Andrea says:

        Chilis also offers free kids meals with purchase of adult entrees. Sign up for emails on their website. It is usually Sun-Wed. Also I receive free app coupons.

    • Sheri says:

      Our Chili’s kids-eat-free is on Tuesdays. They give two kids meals for each adult meal.. For our family of 7 (including a baby who doesn’t get a meal), that is a great deal! They also let us adults get the 2/$20 meal deal, so we can get our must-have chips and salsa included in that. So we end up with 2 adult entrees, two beverages – I need to get the blackberry iced tea 😉 – 4 kids meals – which include a ton of food – and bottomless chips & salsa for $25, before tax & tip. BTW – we always tip on the full bill. 🙂

  18. Crystal says:

    IHOP in Reynoldsburg, Ohio does not have free kids meals on Tuesday or any other day of the week. Just went there tonight with my granddaughter and the server looked at me like I just grew horns. Said no free meals ever. After viewing the fine print under the kids menu section, it say you cannot use coupons on kids meals either. :/

      Our Chick-fil-A in West St. Paul, MN has kids eat free on Mondays from 5-8pm. So perhaps it varies?
      And with the App, my husband and I get free “treats” which can be sandwiches–monthly! So everyone can eat free!
      At our location, you can even get the kids meals through the drive through (kids must be present, obviously).

  26. Brandon Hadley says:
