San Diego kids have a good life! Not only does the sun shine nearly all year long, there’s also no shortage of awesome restaurants that promise way more fun than a kids menu and coloring sheet. Several of San Diego’s culinary spots have fun features to entertain the wee ones while parents savor delicious bites and craft drinks. Click through to see where you need to take the family for your next dinner out.

Corvette Diner

Corvette Diner practically screams family-friendly. This old-school 1950s style diner has a game area, where you can buy tokens and have a blast. The employees come to work to have a good time — who doesn’t love doing The Chicken Dance?! Your kiddos scream for burgers, ice cream sundaes or shakes and if you’re there at the right time, they’ll enjoy watching a magician perform tricks or get their hair tied fancy with straws. Plan for a wait on the weekends, but remember you can pass the time in the arcade.

Insider's Tip: Want a special Date Night for Dads and Daughters, Moms and Misters? Take the family out to Corvette Diner on Tuesday nights for the Date Night Package for Two! The package includes a sparkling cider toast, one entrée, one kid’s meal, a dessert to share plus two $5 Gamers Garage arcade cards for $20, excluding tax and gratuity. The Date Night Package is also available with two entrees for $25.
