School is back in session, soccer season has started and moms across Sacramento are frantically trying to find fast and easy meals to prepare for their kids. Eating out can be costly (especially if you have a large family), but luckily there are many local restaurants that offer FREE or reduced meals for kids on certain nights of the week.
During the month of September, Denny’s is offering FREE pancakes everyday to kids between the hours of 4pm-7pm. Why not have breakfasts for dinner? My kids love pancakes, so we will definitely be dining out after a long soccer practice this month!
Chipotle is also offering free meals to kids all day on Sundays this month. Burritos, tacos or quesadillas- no cooking on a Sunday… sounds good to me!
Here is a list of local restaurants that also offer free or reduced prices for kids on certain days of the week:
Dickey’s Barbeque Pit (several locations throughout the Sacramento area) Fresh BBQ and soft serve ice cream… this is my kids most requested location!
Hoppy Brewing Company (6300 Folsom Boulevard), check out the Sunday football games and let your kids eat for only $1.
