Save money every day by knowing where the “kids eat free” deals are around Charlotte.
We contacted every one of these restaurants in March, 2019 or later to verify the deals but keep in mind that they can change their deals at any time.
Also, in many cases there were several locations of a restaurant, and when we called them we got varying information. And finally, it’s possible that the person who gave us the information wasn’t 100% sure of the details.
So a good practice is to call the restaurant before heading out if “kids eat free” is crucial. Just follow the links below to get to the website and find the phone numbers there.
