– Kids Eat Free

The following is a list of restaurants where kids can eat free, depending upon the night of the week. As of August 2015, all of these listings are accurate – so if you happen upon this site months later, please call the restaurant of your choice to confirm they still offer the Kids Eat Free night!

****If you have a favorite location that offers a Kids Eat Free promotion, please let us know.  This page is always a “work in progress”.

33rd Street Bistro
3301 Folsom Blvd. East Sacramento
(916) 455-2233
Great food for “date night” and even better when you don’t have to get a sitter!  Monday nights, kids eat FREE with paying adults!

Blackbear Diner

2700 El Centro Road, Sacramento

(916) 641-BEAR

Free cubs’ sundae every day after 11am.


12409 Folsom Blvd, Rancho Cordova/916-985-3030 2000 Taylor Rd, Roseville/916-782-5587
One of Northern California’s most famous Steakhouses offers free kids meals, once they purchase a “Jr Deputy” t-shirt for $9.99.  Every time they wear their shirt to the restaurant, they will eat free!

Chevys Fresh Mex

1309 Garden Highway, Sacramento/916-649-0390

Kids eat free every Tuesday. Get two kids meals with every one paying adult.

Every Tuesday night, 4:00-10:00pm … one free kids meal with each adult meal purchased. This works fantastic with my 16 month old, who doesn’t quite eat enough food to warrant her own meal. I don’t have to worry … it’s free!

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit
Locations throughout Sacramento, Dickey’s serves up some authentic BBQ- from Ribs, brisket, tri tip to chicken- there is something for every “meat lover” in your family!  And on Sunday- Kids eat free!!  And the best part…. every meal comes with a “make your own” soft serve ice cream cone!

El Torito
1598 Arden Way, Sacramento
Wednesday evenings, kids eat FREE with the purchase of an adult entrée!

Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant
6049 Madison Avenue
Carmichael, CA
(916) 344.3177
Authentic Mexican food at great prices!  And on Sunday’s- with the purchase of an adult meal,  kids eat for only .99 cents!

Hoppy Brewing Co.

6300 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento

(916) 451-4677

Kids eat for just $1 on Sundays and Mondays

On Tuesdays, kids eat free all day at Ikea!
For children 12 and under, choose from one of their kids combo meals and enjoy a free meal!”.

Macaroni Grill
On Mondays and Tuesdays at the Roseville Location (2010 Douglas Blvd) kids eat free with a qualifying adult purchase!

Malabar- 2960 Del Paso Rd, Sacramento (916) 574-9074
Great place for a “date night”, but take the kids and forget the sitter as they can eat free on Saturday and Sundays

Marie Callender’s
5525 Sunrise Blvd. Citrus Heights
Who doesn’t love a Marie Callender’s pie???  Seriously… they just might have the best pies around!  And on Tuesday and Saturday evenings from 4-close, your kids can eat for free, and if they eat thier “veggies”…then they just might get a slice.

8519 Bond Rd. #101, Elk Grove(916) 690-8646
Italian food at it’s best-  relaxed atmosphere, great food… the fried ravioli’s are our favorite!
And on Sunday, kids eat free after 5pm.

Strings Italian Café
4848 Madison Avenue, Sacramento
1900 Douglas Blvd. Roseville

(916) 348-1925
Who doesn’t love Italian??  And when it’s free… even better!   Kids eat free on Sunday and Monday evenings with a paying adult!

Texas West Bar-B-Que
1600 Fulton Avenue, Sacramento/916-483-7247
All day long kids can choose a kids entree and eat for only 1.99!  It may not be “free”- but, it’s pretty darn close!

2316 Watt Avenue
Great selection to choose from- burgers, salads, pastas and more.  The kids can eat for free all day on Wednesdays (with an Adult entree purchased).  As a mom, I love that they have the option to substitute the fries for carrot and celery sticks.
