Everyone loves a good dinner out every now and again, but sometimes the effects on the wallet aren’t so great, especially when it is a family affair. However, if you are a family visiting or living in Charlotte, there are plenty of places you can go to eat where your kids can snag a free meal, thus cutting down on the cost quite a bit. Good news, right?
So, where are these magical places were kids can eat free in Charlotte you ask? Follow along, and I will lead the way. I have gathered a list of the free kid’s meals around the Queen City for six days of the week (sorry Friday!)
