There’s a local Web site that keeps track of which restaurants offer FREE meals to kids on certain nights of the week, and if you have kids, you should check it out. Go ONLINE to Springs Bargains for a current list. Some restaurants that offer FREE or steeply discounted meals for kids at various times on various days include: Applebee’s, Captain D’s, Black-Eyed Pea, 3 Margaritas, Dickey’s BBQ, Denny’s, The Egg and I, Fazoli’s, Gunther Toody’s, IHOP, IT’z, Joe’s Crab Shack, Jose Muldoon’s, La Casita and Souper Salad. We highly recommend calling ahead to confirm that these restaurants are offering the kids eat free deal before heading to the restaurant, because things can change from week to week. They also warn that not every location in a chain participates. Most require the purchase of one adult meal to get the FREE child’s meal.
