Kids Eat Free Guide for Chicago’s Far Western Suburbs

Some nights you just don’t want to cook. (Or in my case, can’t bear the thought of cleaning the kitchen yet again.) So here comes the Go West Kids Eat Free Guide to the rescue!

 

You’ll see that the following list of restaurants is very heavy on national chains offering various “Kids Eat Free” promotions. I’d love to feature more local restaurants, too, so if you are a regular at a local spot, don’t hesitate to speak to the manager and urge her to consider trying out a “Kids Eat Free” promotion for one night a week for a month or two. We’ll not only quickly add the restaurant to the list below, we’ll do a blog post about it, too, urging our readers to reward a local place for trying something new.

 

Also, these promotions can change or come to an end. Please call the restaurant ahead of time to confirm the details. Also, please drop me a line at editor@gowestyoungmom.com or make a comment below if you know of any additions, deletions or modifications I need to make. Thanks for your help!
