Kids Eat Free

Kids Eat Free In Albuquerque; or Almost Free. My Top 5 Picks.

When you are going from here to there, around and about, in Albuquerque with kids in tow, its always nice to know where you can take a sweet break from cooking and take your kids out to eat. Being a mom myself, I like to know where I can go without breaking the bank. Its always nice to go to a place they honor the fact that some most kids…eat like birds. Why not go to a place where kids eat free or practically for free. If googled, you will notice most places are not updated. I did the work for you and called many places personally to get the most updated services.

 Here are my Top 5 Picks.

#1.  Tucanos Brazilian Grill    110 Central Ave SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102

My #1 TOP PICK. Why you ask?…Because most places you get one child eats free with one paying adult. Which means If I have all three of my children and only me, then only one child gets a free meal.  NOT HERE.  EVERY Child eats free under the age of 6.  Age 7-11 gets a reduced price.  I will leave their menu option here.

#2  Christy Maes.   1400 San Pedro Dr NE Albuquerque, NM 87110

Christy Maes Country Style Decor is the essence of their atmosphere. Christy Mae’s Serves up favorites that will  remind you of your mom’s kitchen table. Kids eat for a mere $1.99  (includes drink) Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.

 #3 Ponderosa  1761 Bellamah Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104

Not only do they have a kids specials but they also have a kids area. With a Chalk Board wall and toys the kids can enjoy playing without feeling impatient while waiting for their food.   At Ponderosa kids eat free with the purchase of an entree on Mondays from 6pm to 9pm.

#4  Applebee’s  ALL 9 Locations

TUESDAYS .99Cents. ALL DAY. I cant help but love the fact that its ALL DAY. You cant beat that. No worrying about what time you get there!  I was also told all 9 locations in Albuquerque participate.  Applebee’s makes this mommy happy. I love their 2 for $20 menu for my husband and I.

#5 Denny’s

They are upping their game and have more to offer then what I remember many years ago. Tuesdays 4pm- 10pm kids eat free.  A few things I like about Denny’s is they have something to offer for anyone’s cravings and they are a part of the Kids Live Well National Resturant Association.
