Cincinnati Kids Eat Free Deals

Cincinnati Kids Eat FreeLooking for Cincinnati Kids Eat Free Deals?

Check out our roundup of Kids Eat Free Deals for both Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

Tuesday night seems to be one of the most popular Cincinnati “Kids Eat Free” nights. Also, some restaurants offer two free kids meals with an adult purchase versus just one so it’s always a good idea to double check the dining deals before you leave since any offers listed are subject to change. Also, some of the restaurants may not include drinks so if you are on a budget, water is always a great option. The age range varies based on the restaurant but it’s usually either 12 and under or 10 and under that can eat free. The deals are good for dine in only too.

We’d love to keep adding to our list so if you know of another “Kids Eat Free” place or great deal, leave us a comment so we can keep track of them all. Remember all dining deals are subject to change so before you make the trip with all the kiddos, give them a call to confirm the deal is still valid.  Thank you to our great readers for all their input.  We’ve added Reader Recommendations to the post.

 

NOTE: Because restaurant promotions are constantly changing we recommend calling the restaurant before heading out, just to make sure. We’ll do our best to keep this updated, but just in case…. call.

Other Great Deals:

Bob Evans – I think Bob Evan’s has a really nice selection of kids’ meals plus they give you lots of healthier side choice options (broccoli, yogurt, fruit, carrots and more).  Drinks are not included. Sign up for their birthday club and your kids can get a free kids meal on their birthday.

Chi -nnatti’s Pizza – FFC had a fun night out for their Wednesday Family Night.  You can purchase any pizza/any style/any size and get one free (less expensive pizza is the free item).  This is a great place for kids – it’s spacious with a notable “din” factor. But, if you do order the deep dish pizza, be prepared to wait a little bit longer (my favorite was their traditional style).  7980 Hosbrook Road, Madeira, Ohio. (513) 985-4445.

    Kids eat free at the Chilis in Springdale and the Applebees in Fairfield (Fairfield on the Green area) on Tuesday nights!

  2. says

    The rapidly meals behemoth that is Burger King was started out as a restaurant referred to as “Insta-Burger King” in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1953. The company has given that expanded not only nationally inside the United States, but internationally as properly.

  3. Pat says

    Went to Viva Tequila this past Sunday for the kids eat free as we do quite often. After we got our check we were told they discontinued it. The guy did take 7 bucks off the bill for the misunderstanding which was nice of him. Food was good as usual.

    • Shannanb says

      Pat THANK YOU for letting us know. We’ll remove them from the post. Nice that they still honored it.

  4. Kathy says

    I got an e-mail from TGIFriday’s saying kids eat free every Monday in July. It says kids 12 and under get one free kid’s meal w/ the purchase of an adult entree. I’m not sure if you have more than one child if they all get one free w/ the way it is worded, or one per adult…

  5. says

    I am hesitant to suggest this because we just found it. Last week my husband, 3 step kids and I went here. It was so great, not crowded at all and the food was very tasty. This is our new secret place.

    Monday and Wednesday, one free kid’s meal per paying adult.

    Enjoy, just don’t go when I do. ;-)

    • Sara says

      haha, I don’t know how to post comments. Click my name…Buffalo Joe’s is the place. It’s in Fairfield. :-P

  6. Stacey says

    I signed up for coupons for Cici’s Pizza (there is one located in the Jungle Jims strip mall) and I sometimes get Kids Eat Free with paying adult coupons from them. They have a magician on Wednesday nights who does tricks at your table. The kids love him, and he waits until you’re pretty much done eating to entertain.

    Gold Start Chili-Ross, Oh kids eat free on Tuesday

    Skyline – Harrison and Mt. Healthy (Pleasant Run) Kids eat free Wednesday

  7. Vanessa says

    Kids eat free at the Chic-Fli-A in Eastgate on friday from 4-9. And Johnny Rockets in Kenwood is Fri & Sat nights

  8. Patterson says

    So Skyline is Kid Eat Free on Wednesday night at most locations. The Blue Ash Skyline is the only Kids Eat Free on Monday Nights.

  9. Julia says

    Kids eat free at Oakbrook Cafe on Tuesdays. I wouldn’t recommend it though. It took a half hour to get our food and there was no one in the place. Too much of a bar atmosphere to take kids. They considered buying milk was making the place kids friendly. Too bad, because the food was very good.

  10. Niki says

    Larosas had kids spaghetti-a-plenty on Monday and Tuesday nights (last I checked) it was .99 cents per child…

  11. lesley garcia says

    Kids eat for 99 cents at El Establo in Silverton, OH 7133 montgomery rd
    cincinnati ohio 45236. Huge meals yummy look them up on urbanspoon.com

  12. Julia says

    Just received an e-mail from Fazoli’s. Two kids can eat for 99 cents each with one adult purchase on Tuesdays from 5-8pm. There will also be crafts.

  13. says

    Wow, love that the recommendations keep coming. I just added Texas Roadhouse (.99/meals), Bourbon House Pizza, Hofbrauhaus and Lonestar Steakhouse to our reader recommendations. Thanks so much everyone. Tuesday is still the kids night out champ!

  14. 365Cincinnati says

    RT @FamFriendlyCin: Don’t forget –> Lots of Kids Eat Free options tonight — Chik Fil-A, Gold Star, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Toot’s an …

  15. Sarah says

    Just went to Chammps tonight (Monday), and they no longer have Kids Eat Free on Monday nights. The hostess kindly explained that it is now on Tuesday nights, since two weeks ago or so. It’s a good thing I asked before I sat down with my 3 hungry children, although the empty parking lot and restaurant were obvious bad omens! We kindly walked out and went to LaRosa’s.

  16. says

    Stopped by the CHik Fil A in Florence today and learned they do Kids Eat Free on Monday during lunch with the purchase of an Adult meal. That’s in addition to the Tuesday night offer.

    Gotta Love Kids Eat Free!!!

  19. Kim Longhurst Thomasson via Facebook says

    Here’s another. Abuelo’s Mexican Resturants have “Kids pay what they weigh” on Monday and Tuesday. So if your child weighs 45 lbs, their meal is only 45 cents!

  20. Heather Mohlman Huneycutt via Facebook says

    I would love to see Northern KY restaurants on the list too!! So far I know Skyline in Independence kids eat free on Sundays and Tuesdays at Max and Erma’s in Crestview they eat free too!! Steak and Shake is all weekend free too!

  21. says

    El Mariachi in Hebron (but NOT Harrison) has free kids meals on Sunday.

    The Hebron Gold Star also definitely does kids night on Tuesday nights. Our kids love Dan the Balloon Man.

    Also, Beef O’ Brady’s in Hebron has $1.49 kids meals on Tuesday nights.

    We love the Spaghetti-a-plenty nights at LaRosa’s! 4 of us eat for under $20. It’s great!

  22. says

    How could I forget the LaRosa’s deal – we’ve done the spaghetti meal many a times. Thanks Joie for the tip. Thanks Kellie about Max & Erma’s too.

  23. Joie Linser via Facebook says

    Thank you! Another one for your list: Not exactly free, but on Mondays and Tuesdays LaRosas has an all you can eat spaghetti deal. Adults are $4.99 and kids are only $.99! They apple slices, a drink, and as much spaghetti as they can eat. Not bad for a dollar!
