2018 Ann Arbor Halloween Dining Deals

Dinner on Halloween is always a challenge between school and Trick or Treat. Over the years, we’ve taken advantage of a few Halloween dining deals for a convenient meal right after school. Check out our list of 2018 Ann Arbor Halloween Dining Deals.

2018 Ann Arbor Halloween Dining Deals

With trick or treat hours starting as early as 5p in Ann Arbor, stopping for dinner on the way home from school (and the class Halloween party) is a great choice.

IHOP will be celebrating Halloween on Monday, October 31 with a Free Scary Face Pancake for kids ages 12 & under. The deal is available from 7a-10p (and only for Dine-in customers). We’ve taken advantage of this deal a couple of times over the years. It makes for a great early dinner between school and trick or treating. My daughter wants to return again this year – it’s her last year to qualify!

IHOP is located at 4221 Ellsworth Rd, Ypsilanti near the Carpenter Rd Meijer.



Chipotle is offering a $4 Boo-rito for anyone (adults and children) who visit in costume. The deal is available on Halloween from 3p-closing. There are 3 Ann Arbor Chipotle locations:

  • 235 S. State St
  • 858 Briarwood Circle
  • 3354 E. Washtenaw Ave

We did the Chipotle Boo-rito deal in 2012 between school and trick or treat. And yes, my witch’s hat counted as a costume for me. Their website does say it is the manager’s discretion to what constitutes a costume.

Dine at Home

With Halloween on Saturday this year, we likely will be at home before trick or treat, so dinner at home is a great option. Three years ago I shared an idea for an Easy Halloween Dinner that would still give you lots of time for last minute holiday prep – costumes, pumpkin carving, etc.
