- Look for restaurants where kids eat free. We keep a mental note of what restaurants offer kids eat free and on what night. You can also go to http://www.mykidseatfree.com/ to get a list of restaurants in your area.
- Look for a dollar menu
- Skip the kids menu and order a regular entree and split it between the kids. Especially when you are at a restaurant that offers chips and salsa or rolls prior to your meal. My kids seem to fill up even before the entree arrives.
- Order water or one drink and split between the kids. Most restaurants even fast food offer free refills.
- Be aware of the kids meal prices before you go. Some kids meal prices are outrageous($3.50 to $ 5 is too much). We like Bob Evans because most of the kids meals are $1.99 and there meal choices are healthier than most.

We love to go out to ocassionally eat as a family but the cost to do so can be expensive. Over the years we have discovered some shortcuts to keep the bill down.
