Richmond Kids Eat Free! (Or Cheap!)

eatfree (1)Many Richmond area restaurants offer Kids’ Dining Deals throughout the week, which is wonderful because we Richmonders like our food.  But, alas, we Richmond Moms and Dads don’t always want to cook it.

Here’s a list of local establishments that offer free or discounted meals for their smallest diners, organized by day of the week.

(See restaurant websites for specific details since deals may change periodically.)

We are always updating this list, so please let us know if you know of any deals that aren’t included!
