Where Kids Eat Free (or cheap cheap) in Northwest Arkansas

Where Kids Eat Free in Northwest Arkansas

Sometimes a mama just needs a break from the kitchen. Use the Kids Eat Free list to find a fun place to eat without breaking the bank.

A word of caution, though! We update this list frequently, but the hours and times of the following Kids Eat Free restaurants could change without notice, so make sure to check with them first. (This list was last updated on 4/30/2021.)

Particularly in light of changes that may have been caused by COVID-19, please double-check with each restaurant before assuming that their specials are the same as before. We’ve linked to each restaurant so you can easily double-check. Also, keep in mind that these offers are typically contingent upon an adult meal purchase and are dine-in only.

We compiled a list of the restaurants we know about, but we’d also like to hear from you.

If it’s not listed below, please tell us about your favorite Kids Eat Free restaurants around town. We’d also like to hear about those places that offer “kids eat almost-free” meals (as in super cheap). Click the words “post a comment” at the bottom of this post and share your favorites with everyone! Or you can email us at mamas@nwamotherlode.com.
