Kid-Friendly Food

Snag a family night out on the cheap with these buy-one-get-one deals.


Published:

It’s no secret: Kids cost money—from diapers all the way to college tuition. But a number of East Bay eateries are helping out by offering a free kids meal with each adult entrée purchased. With these deals, eating out will feel like it did when you were a party of just two (well, at least at the moment you pay the bill).

Cattlemens Restaurant: Thursdays after 5 p.m., kids 12 and under. Kids dig into a hearty meat-and-potatoes cowboy dinner, complete with a five-ounce steak and french fries. 2882 Kitty Hawk Rd., Livermore, (925) 447-1224, cattlemensrestaurants.com.

Fontina Ristorante: Mondays and Tuesdays after 4 p.m., kids 12 and under. While Mom and Dad sip a red from Fontina’s wine list, kids can start in on classics from chicken Alfredo to Italian meatballs. 349 Main St., Pleasanton, (925) 462-9299.
