Dining out with kids is always a gamble. Sometimes they will devour their entire plate and even ask for more (gasp!) and other times they’ll only take a few bites and call it a meal. If you’re tired of shelling out big bucks for kids’ meals that end up going home in a to-go box, we’ve rounded up a list of places where kids can dine for free or next to nothing.
