Kids Eat Free Deals in the Washington DC Area

Free kids meals at Washington DC, Montgomery County and even some Northern Virginia restaurants!

I’ve been making it my personal goal to find as many local kids eat free deals as possible. (UPDATED and I keep updating 🙂 )

As the Frugal Families columnist for Wheaton Patch [in addition to the Mom of a Million Mistakes column for the site – psst, check out the great guest columnists who filled in for me while I took a baby break: Jean, Leticia, Colleen and Garine!], I’ve published three separate columns about kids eat free promotions.

It’s becoming a bit of an obsession, calling these restaurants, talking to the managers to confirm the deals…I keep finding more!

Please note that when a chain is listed, not all restaurants in the chain participate in the promotions. Or they might participate on different days.

As of June 30, 2011, all of these deals are accurate. However, restaurants change their promotions all the time. Please double check before you dine!

Do you know of others? List ones you’ve heard of in the comments, I’ll call to confirm and then update the list.
