“Kids eat free” — it’s like music to parents’ ears. When it comes to hasty Halloween meal planning, nothing beats the ease of eating out — except maybe eating free! To incentivize families to visit on Oct. 31, top restaurants are offering free meals and goodies for kids on Halloween. Round up your little goblins, get them in costume and visit any of these locations for a fun (and affordable!) Halloween treat.
1. IHOP. Free Scary Face Pancakes are back! Between 7am and 10pm on Tuesday, kids can create their own free spooky pancake using a variety of tasty (and sugary) ingredients like Oreos, candy corn, whipped cream and strawberries! This offer is valid for ages 12 and under.
2. Krispy Kreme. Ok, technically this one is for everyone, but adults like free sugar, too! Don your costume at Krispy Kreme on Tuesday and you’ll get a free doughnut of your choice. Share your photos on social media with the hashtag #TreatCred.
3. McAlister's Deli. Ghosts and witches under the age of 12 can enjoy a free meal at McAlister’s on Halloween! Kids can choose from favorite items like sandwiches, mac and cheese and “scary spuds.” The offer is valid for dine-in orders with an adult entree purchase.
5. Noodles & Company. What could be better than famous Wisconsin Mac for free? Receive one free kids entree for every adult entree you purchase on Halloween at participating Noodles restaurants. Show this email to redeem.
