Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free in San Diego

Call to verify before you go as promotions change

On any given day of the week, kids eat free at select San Diego restaurants around town.

IMPORTANT NOTE: These promotions change regularly, tend to be correlated to the broader economy (i.e. fewer such offers in good economic times, many more in tougher times), and many are not even promoted on the restaurants’ websites and social media platforms.

Call before you go to see if kids eat free is still on offer.

There are a few rules that usually apply to kids eat free promotions. These offers usually apply to the kids’ menu only (not the regular menu) and are tied to the purchase of an adult meal. Dining in the restaurant, versus take-out, is also often a common requirement.

Without further ado, here is a list of verified restaurants in San Diego that offer kids eat free promotions as of September 2019.

TIP: Kids eat free at even MORE restaurants during October as part of the countywide Kids Free San Diego promotion. You can check the list here.
