With hectic school schedules and extracurricular activities, sometimes it's easier just to take the family out. But taking the family out doesn't mean you have to spend a fortune. Charlotte, North Carolina has dozens of restaurants that offer free (or very cheap) food for kids on every single night of the week.
Some are two kid's meals per adult meal, some are one per adult, and almost all of these are for dine-in only, and do require an adult meal purchase. A few cities just outside of Charlotte are included, but if the city isn't named, the address is in Charlotte.
Generally, it is always best to call the restaurant ahead of time and verify before you pack the kids in the car. Restaurants are constantly coming and going, and promotions may change.
