Everyone seems to be eating out more often, and the cost of that can add up. Choosing a restaurant adults can enjoy that has free food for kids specials is a good choice now and then to save a little money. These four San Antonio restaurants cater to that idea, with free meals for kids on certain days or every day of the week. So check out the menus and save a little money when you take the family out to eat after a long day at work.

    Kids under 6 eat free every day off of the kids menu with each purchase of an adult meal. Since the under-6 crowd might not be too interested in the authentic Cajun food Acadanina cooks up, like crawfish etouffee, gumbo, red beans and rice, and catfish, they can choose from a chicken fillet, corn dog, peanut butter, and jelly or a hot dog on a bun. Kids from 6 to 12 have the added choices of popcorn shrimp or catfish fillets, but those meals are not free.
