Places for Kids to Eat for FREE in Jackson, MS – Every Day of the Week!

Places for Kids to Eat for FREE in Jackson, MS – Every Day of the Week!

Let’s face it – who has the budget or the time to go out to eat with the kids regularly? Special occasions give us reasons to celebrate. Birthdays, graduations, a big win for the sports team… And sometimes the day is just too long, the Mama is just too tired, and a sit down homemade dinner is just not happening. What do you do in this case?

A. Breakfast for dinner! (Scrambled eggs and toast. Pancakes if your kids are lucky).
B. Order pizza (always a win).
C. Dig through your freezer in hopes of finding something edible that won’t have to thaw for three hours.

Those are all great options. But there’s another one that is a game-changer:

Take those kids out for a delicious chef-cooked meal that is absolutely FREE (or almost free)!

The only condition is you have to buy your own meal. It’s pretty easy: one full price adult meal equals one free kids’ meal. And there’s a place to go every day of the week! For some days, there are multiple choices – and all are excellent.

A few things to remember


  1. Promotions expire, things change. It’s always a good idea to check first by calling the location of your choice.
  2. The next time you have an unexpected change of plans and need dinner ideas fast, don’t waste your time browsing the web ads. Just save this link on your phone. Or print out this list of restaurants and keep it in your car. Highlight the days of the week. The next time you’ll need to feed the kids on the go – the solution will be in your hands.
  3. It’s not reasonable for one mom to take her six kids out for dinner or lunch when only one meal ends up being free. But if for a special occasion you end up going out together with extended family, it’s a good idea to see if the grandparents and aunts and uncles would be ok with going to one of these dine-in locations to help you save a little.
  4. If you know of other restaurants in Jackson area offering discounts or promotions for kids, please let us know!
