Dining out is a treat, but it doesn’t have to break the bank. Because we love you as much as we love a great bargain (especially if it involves food), we’ve compiled a list of San Antonio restaurants where kids eat free, for a discount or cheaply. Know of any restaurants we missed? Discover a meal deal below is incorrect or has expired? We need your help to improve and maintain this comprehensive list. Please leave suggestions in the comments and we’ll build this list together!
*This list is current as of August 15, 2023, but please call ahead to confirm restaurant participation, as conditions may be subject to change and meal deals may not be available at all locations. Also, don’t miss our list of San Antonio Restaurants with Playgrounds!
