Grandchildren Discounts at Restaurants
Including Free Meals with Entree Purchase
Date: October 28, 2009
Author: David Smidt, SeniorDiscounts

Spending time with you grandchildren is always fun, especially when you can do it at a discount. We are always on the lookout for restaurants that provide discounts to the over 50 community, but there are also some great deals for the kids that could help you save money.

Many national chains provide free or discounted meals for children with the purchase of a regular entrée. That’s good incentive to take your grandkids to dinner. But as with senior discounts, you should be aware of possible restrictions.

Most national restaurant chains are franchised, so it may be up to the individual restaurant owner to decide whether they offer a discount or not. This means that not all restaurant locations may participate and that the amount of the discount can vary from one location to another. The specific times and days of the week the discount is offered may also vary. Most will offer a discount during off-peak times, usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday, and at a time of the day that would usually be slower, for example, an “early bird special.”

Below are some examples of discounts for kids we could confirm at some locations of various national chains. We have provided age requirements for the children if they were available, but they will vary from location to location. As with all discounts, it is best to call in advance to see if they offer a current promotion and what restrictions may exist.

(Existing senior discounts at these locations will most likely not be able to be used in conjunction with the kid’s discounts, but it’s always worth to ask.)
