Everyone with children knows that eating out can really add up to big bucks fast. Every time we added another child to our family, we would say that we are done eating out. How long does that usually last? Ummmm...maybe a week or so and then I am so ready to get out of the kitchen and eat out of the house!
So with four kids (granted only three actually eating kid's meals yet) it is hard to get out of a restaurant - any restaurant not offering free toys with their meals - for less than $30.00. We eat a lot of Mexican food in our family just because we can do it inexpensively.
I have been talking about putting a list together of all local area restaurants that offer kid's nights when your children can eat for FREE or for a very low cost. Take a look, this is what I have found...
Firehouse Subs: Kids eat free every Wednesday
Gilligans Steamers and Grill: Kids eat free every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after 4 p.m. One free meal per paying adult.
Moes: Kids eat free every Tuesday
IHOP: Kids eat free every day from 4-10 p.m.
McAlisters Deli: Kids eat free every day after 5:00 p.m.
Schlotzsky's Deli: Kids eat free all day on Wednesdays with a paying adult purchasing at least $5.00.
Salsarita's: Kids eat free on Mondays. Also if they show up in their sports uniforms, they can purchase a kid's meal for $1 - every day.
Applebees: Kids eat on Tuesdays for $.99
Ollie's Gourmet Deli: Kids eat free on Saturdays
The Other Pancake House: Kids eat free on Saturdays
Hopefully this will help others out in the Lexington area and will at least be a list for me to refer to when it is just time to make a break out of the house. I'll try and keep it updated as things change or as new restaurants can be added.
