Everywhere Kids eat Free around RVA

Updated: 3 days ago

Dining out with kids can be expensive, but some of our local RVA restaurants are making it even easier on families' wallets by offering deals just for kids. These Richmond area restaurants offer money-saving deals on ice cream and kids meals, and some even let kids eat for free with the purchase of an adult entree!


Dining out as a family is one of my favorite things to do, so I've rounded up the best deals on kids meals around RVA and included nearby play spots too!
