A family of four can easily spend over $30 dollars eating out. Eat out four times a week, which is common with busy working parents, and you’ve spent $120 a week.
As a working mother, I must admit that eating out or picking something up is often the easiest thing to do after a long busy day of running between kids’ activities or ball games. This got me thinking; how can you eat out and not break the bank? I have compiled a list of Clarksville restaurants with “kids eat free” options.
Some of them you may already know. Some will surprise you. These are not paid advertisements, simply a list of what anyone could find searching the web.
-Cumberland Grille on Madison Street has “kids eat free” until Labor Day. Kids must be under 10 and you must purchase one kids meal per adult meal.
-Hooters has kids eat free until 5 p.m. on Saturdays for kids 12 and under.
-Fazoli’s has kids eat free every weekend in August – one kids meal per adult meal.
-Captain D’s on Kraft Street and Wilma Rudolph Blvd offers two free kids meals with an adult entrée on Thursdays.
-Golden Corral lets kids three and under eat free with an adult buffet.
-Pizza Hut on Wilma Rudolph Blvd: Tuesday is their Kid’s Night where kids can get a free personal pan pizza with the purchase of one large or medium pizza.
-Steak ‘n Shake lets kids eat free every Saturday and Sunday. You’re allowed two kid’s meals with every adult purchase.
-The Depot in Springfield lets kids eat free on Thursday nights.
-Shoney’s lets kids four and under eat free off the kids menu.
-Denny’s in Oak Grove lets kids eat free on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 4p to 10p.
-Which Wich currently has a special where you can get a free kids sandwich with the purchase of any regular sandwich on Tuesdays.
-Applebee’s on Wilma Rudolph lets kids 12 and under eat free Monday – Wednesday. You must purchase an adult entrée.
The offers seem to be on days that the restaurants are less crowded. They do this to drive traffic on days that are traditionally slow. So if you choose to eat out on these days, you could really save money. One last thought; if you want to save even more, drink water. Not only is it better for you but will save you a bunch of money.
