Kids Eat Free DC and Virginia


Often in the hustle and bustle of sports, dance and other extracurricular activities, my children and I find ourselves needing a quick dinner when out during the start of the school year. In case your family is experiencing that same food foraging, I have put together a list of some kids’ eat free or reduced-price kids’ meal deals in the District and Northern Virginia.

If, like us, you live in Maryland, knock yourself out with my findings in my earlier post on current kids eat free or reduced-price kid meal restaurant offerings in Maryland.

This DC/NoVA list is valid as of September 11, 2013. Please note that these promotions change frequently, and all restaurants’ phone numbers are listed for easy calling to verify.
