- Kids Eat Free

The following is a list of restaurants where kids can eat free, depending upon the night of the week. As of May 2012, all of these listings are accurate – so if you happen upon this site months later, please call the restaurant of your choice to confirm they still offer the Kids Eat Free night!

****If you have a favorite location that offers a Kids Eat Free promotion, please let us know.  This page is always a “work in progress”.



12409 Folsom Blvd, Rancho Cordova/916-985-3030 2000 Taylor Rd, Roseville/916-782-5587
One of Northern California’s most famous Steakhouses offers free kids meals, once they purchase a “Jr Deputy” t-shirt for $9.99.  Every time they wear their shirt to the restaurant, they will eat free!

Chevy’s Fresh Mex
1234 Howe Avenue, Sacramento/916-923-6574
Kids eat free all day every Tuesday, with purchase of an adult entree. Toss in the endless chips and salsa and a margarita for mommy, and what more could you want?

Coco’s Restaurant
7887 Madison Aven Citrus Heights/1830 Arden Way Sacramento
Another family favorite, with plenty of American classics to choose from.  The kids will be begging for some of the famous Coco’s pies when they are finished.  Kids eat free every night after 4pm!

Every Tuesday night, 4:00-10:00pm … one free kids meal with each adult meal purchased. This works fantastic with my 16 month old, who doesn’t quite eat enough food to warrant her own meal. I don’t have to worry … it’s free!

Hacienda del Rio
702 Sutter Street, Folsom
Tuesday nights from 4:30-8:30, Kids can eat free with an Adult entree purchase.  Located in the heart of Historic Folsom, this Restaurant/Bar serves up some great Mexican fare.  They have crayons and balloons to keep the kids entertained…but most important- mini cupcakes!

On Tuesdays, kids eat free all day at Ikea!
For children 12 and under, choose from one of thier kids combo meals and enjoy a free meal!”.

Malabar- 2960 Del Paso Rd, Sacramento (916) 574-9074
Great place for a “date night”, but take the kids and forget the sitter as they can eat free on Saturday and Sundays

Marie Callender’s
5525 Sunrise Blvd. Citrus Heights
Who doesn’t love a Marie Callender’s pie???  Seriously… they just might have the best pies around!  And on Tuesday and Saturday evenings from 4-close, your kids can eat for free, and if they eat thier “veggies”…then they just might get a slice.
Offer is at participating locations

Riverside Clubhouse
2633 Riverside Blvd, Sacramento/916-448-9988
Sunday and Monday nights, kids under 12 eat free at this very popular, very dee-lish neighborhood bistro (with the purchase of an adult entree). At first glance, Riverside Clubhouse may seem like a great place for date-night (and it is!), or one of the best happy hours in town (that, too!) – but don’t be frightened. This neighborhood hang out is also very kid-friendly.

Squeeze Inn
1350 Harbour Blvd, West Sacramento
Known in Sacramento as the “best burger joint”- this local favorite has been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive in’s and Dives” as having one of the best and cheesiest burgers around! And on Wednesday evenings- kids eat free with a paying adult!

Texas West Bar-B-Que
1600 Fulton Avenue, Sacramento/916-483-7247
All day long kids can choose a kids entree and eat for only 1.99!  It may not be “free”- but, it’s pretty darn close!

Locations in Sacramento and Rocklin
Great selection to choose from- burgers, salads, pastas and more.  The kids can eat for free all day on Wednesdays (with an Adult entree purchased).  As a mom, I love that they have the option to substitute the fries for carrot and celery sticks.
