Get Discount Meals

If you’re a senior, veteran, first responder or have a child, you are eligible for a meal discount. If you aren’t, you know someone who is. Share this information with them! Summertime is often family time. A large family needs to budget for vacations, local excursions or simply planning meals. From the littlest to the seniors, I’ve Got Your Six!

Discount Meals
Everyone needs to eat. Many national restaurant chains offer “kids eat free” or kids menu discount promotions. Most companies consider “kids” to be age 12 or younger.

These policies can change or be different per franchise location. Always check with the specific location or the restaurant’s website for the most current details. Look at options online to ensure the sometimes-limited options will be acceptable. Here are some restaurants with “kids eat free” promotions. The online version of this list has many options hyperlinked to the website offers.

Discount Meals for Kids
Denny’s: Kids Eat Free with adult entrée purchase of $6 or more. Days and participation vary by location.
IHOP: Kids eat free with the purchase of an adult entrée for a limited time.

Applebee’s: Offers kids eat free promos on certain holidays.
Chili’s: Loyalty members can get a free meal from the kids’ menu for kids with the purchase of any regular entree.
Golden Corral: Kids age 3 or younger appear to get a free buffet. Kids ages 4-12 have $2.99 Kids’ Nights on Mon-Thurs after 4 p.m.
Texas Roadhouse: Offers a “Kids Night” promotion where one free kid’s meal is offered per paying adult entree purchase on specific days (typically Mondays or Tuesdays). Selection is from a limited menu. Sides and drinks are typically included.
Cici’s Pizza: Offers a free kids buffet on specific holidays. Most offer a free buffet for kids ages 3 or younger with the purchase of an adult buffet. Check terms at your closest location because each is individually owned.
Ruby Tuesday: Kids eat free all day on Fridays. On Tuesdays, dinner is free with the purchase of a regularly priced entrée.

Other restaurants have a variety of occasional kids’ programs with limitations. These include Arby’s, Fuddruckers, Friendly’s, Shoney’s, Pizza Hut, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Red Robin, TGI Fridays, Steak ‘n Shake, and Uno Pizzeria & Grill.

Again, these promotions vary by location and may change over time. Check with the specific restaurant for current offers and details before visiting. Additionally, local and regional chains may also offer unadvertised kids-eat-free promotions. Explore options in your area.

Discount Meals for 50+
The term “senior” is somewhat subjective. While the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) accepts members age 50 or older, most age-related discounts start at age 55+. Many discounts are limited to AARP members to ensure demographic eligibility and avoid other problems.

Seniors can get discount meals, but they aren’t free. Most discounts are not stackable or combinable with other promotions. Discounts may have maximum dollar amounts.

Denny’s: AARP members get 15% off their entire guest check at participating restaurants. There are several exclusions. Please ask before ordering.
IHOP : Offers a 55+ menu with discounted prices for seniors.
Golden Corral: Offers a discounted senior buffet on certain days.
Krispy Kreme: Most locations offer a 10% discount for customers aged 50 or older.
Outback Steakhouse: Offers a 10% discount for AARP members.
Bonefish Grill: Offers a 10% discount for AARP members.
McDonald’s: Some locations offer discounts or free coffee.
Burger King: Some locations offer discounts or complimentary beverages with purchases for seniors.
Bob Evans: Offers a senior menu with 10% discounted prices for 55+ guests. This discount can be used with other coupons and promotions.

Other restaurants have a variety of programs with limitations. These can include everything from a complimentary beverage to specific menus and as much as 20% discounts. Again, check with each location to understand their level of participation.

Additional discounts are often available at Cici’s Pizza, Hardee’s, Jack in the Box, Long John Silvers, SaltGrass, Shoney’s, Sizzler, Steak ‘n Shake, TCBY, Waffle House, Whataburger, and White Castle.

Discount Meals for “Heroes”
When used with special offers, the term “Heroes” applies to folks who sacrificed for the public good. This group can include active-duty military, military veterans, first responders, police officers, firefighters, doctors, nurses, teachers and more. In short, always ask.

Many restaurants offer entire free meals on Veterans Day (Nov. 11). Please see the separate Information of Value “Free Stuff” page for those benefits along with birthday and other benefits.

The following restaurants offer other discounts to “heroes.” Please ask for these specific benefits before ordering to ensure the specific location will honor your sacrifice with a discount.
