Almost all restaurants are said to be kid-friendly if you go early enough and have well-behaved children.
Are you laughing? I am.
My trio is a bit much for sit-down dining spots. When I take them to well-established restaurants, I sweat and apologize profusely. They’re good kids — I swear. Never mind the tiny bit of paper that just flew out of my son’s straw or that my toddler is now jumping off of her seat.
So, I created a mental list of restaurants where the servers and patrons don’t mind if we get a little rowdy, offer discounts, have fun activities or are family friendly. I eventually created an online version of that list. Visit momaha.com/freefood for a complete list of restaurants where kids can eat for free (or really cheap) on certain days of the week.
Find several useful dining tips from momaha readers, foodie tricks and dazzling dessert recipes in the June issue of momaha: The magazine (below).
April Kane: “We love Zio’s Pizzeria. They give the boys dough to play with and coloring pages with crayons. We have fun, and before you know it, our food is ready.”
Angela Allen: “Texas Roadhouse. The dancing keeps the little one entertained, and he loves to throw peanuts on the floor. It’s the place he picked for his birthday. He’s ready to get on the saddle!”
Amy Weingardt Tolan: “Jason’s Deli. You cannot beat a healthier menu full of options, and it’s just a friendly atmostphere in general.”
