Choosing an Albuquerque restaurant that offers FREE or discounted meals for kids is a fun and effective way to dine out without breaking the bank.
Many restaurants offering free kids meals put restrictions on the deals. Many have age limits, the free meal must be from the kids menu and accompanied by an adult entree purchase, and not all restaurants participate in the deal. Call ahead to find out whether your local restaurant offers these family deals before you head out.
Pro tip: Many local and chain restaurants have free or discounted kids’ meals and don’t advertise them. You must ask your server if they are offering a promotion. So don’t be shy —if you don’t ask, your kids don’t eat free.
Here’s the list of restaurants where kids eat for free or cheap.
