Restaurants where kids eat free

With summer being here and the kids out of school, I for one have many road trips planned. Some within Canada, and some with the USA, all with my children. It is so easy to travel back and forth between the two countries and there is so much to see. I always have a budget when I travel and a big part of the budget is food. Having two teen boys that is not always easy. So if I can find a free meal for little one at a restaurant that offers “kids eat free” I am going to take it. Often, that offer influences my decision to eat there.

Below is a list of restaurants across North America where kids eat free. Some are based on location, others time of day. I suggestion checking ahead by calling or looking on their website to confirm. If you have two adults and two children, the savings will add up quick!
