Ann Arbor’s Best-Kept Secret: Where Kids Eat Free

There are a number of restaurants that offer Kids Eat Free in Ann Arbor and surrounding towns. These deals are available on various days of the week.

Please verify with restaurants as they sometimes change their promotion. When I hear about changes, I will update the list.

Free kids meals typically are only free with the purchase of an adult entree. They are also restricted to items on the kids menu and only for kids ages 12 and under or 10 and under based on their normal kids meal age range.

If you know of a deal that I have missed, please email it to me. (Contact information for the restaurant or a website/social media link is appreciated.)

Note: Deals below were correct to the best of my knowledge when they were added to the list. Restaurants can change these promotions frequently. Please verify with the restaurant before attending.

  1. Hi! I ate at Pretzel Bell a few weeks ago (early April, 2018) with my two children and they only allowed one child’s meal per adult adult entree purchased.

  2. Thanks. I called all 3 A2/Ypsi BWW and added their details. They each have a different price – and State St offers it on Wednesday and Sunday, the others just on Wednesday.

  3. Thanks for the update. The main Aubrees page shared Kids Eat Free on Tuesday again today. It does say at participating locations but doesn’t exclude anyone. I’ll update the text to exclude them.
