Top 5 Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free

By Guest Gatekeeper Kimberly Harrington

Several years ago, I decided to start a blog where I could post Kid’s Events here in Middle Georgia – with four boys, we were always looking for fun things to do.  Well, as I started researching and looking at activities, I discovered that a lot of restaurants in our area offer a Kids Eat Free Night.  So, here is a list of the Top 5 Restaurants in our area where kids eat free (or really cheap) – and each one is on a different day of the week.  Oh, and I also have to say thank you to my readers – they were a big help in compiling this list.
