Vacations can be expensive. Vacations with a family can be even more expensive. If you're Texas-bound with your kids in tow, one way to stretch your dollar is to take the family to restaurants where kids eat free in Houston. Getting a bite with family at these places won't take a bite out of your wallet.
Special offers can change frequently. Be sure to call ahead to make sure kids can still eat free at these Houston restaurants.
