  3. Great list and what a helpful resource for dining free with kids 😉

  4. Friendlys ( I know!) kids eat free Monday after a Patriots win. The one in Norwood is really pretty good.

  5. Wozza…that’s a lot of different choices! Here we only have a handful of restaurants and it’s only a couple of days a week (which sucks). There are so many I have never heard of before! Time to start planning a trip to Boston 🙂

  6. I would love to head to Boston to sample the cuisine. I have heard great things about the food there.

  7. You have a lot of places that kids can dine free! We only have a few and they are places the girls aren’t too fond of. *sigh*

  20. This is a great list to have handy! There are definitely nights that this Mom just needs a night off from cooking and finding a kid-friendly restaurant that has free kid’s meals is a big deal. It can cost us big money for a dinner out with a family of 6 so a free meal is always welcome!

  21. Wow what a great list! I had no idea so many places offered free childrens meals!

  23. Oh my goodness, this is an awesome list! We only have one more child that’s still under 12, but do we ever appreciate the free meal for her when we can get it. It makes such a big difference, especially when you’re on a budget!
