Parents, we know that taking the family out to dinner can get pricey. Even worse, kids with “discerning palettes” may reject what they ordered, forcing you to spring for an extra meal or risk dealing with a hungry toddler for the rest of the night.

That’s why we’ve updated our Kids Eat Free list. These Fort Wayne eateries will feed your little buckaroo at no extra charge, leaving a few extra buckaroos in your travel budget. 

This is an accurate list at the time of publication. Please contact the restaurant location you will be visiting before to confirm the kid's meal promotion is still being offered. The deals listed here are for dine-in only.
