Kids Eat Free In Acadiana

I have been hard at work on something great and new for all of my local readers!  I have compiled the largest list of restaurants in Lafayette and Acadiana where kids eat free!

kids eat free in acadiana

I have included a link on each one to the restuarant’s website or Facebook page.  Most of these restaurants do not advertise that kids can eat free, so the list was, largely compiled by word of mouth.  Be sure to contact the restaurant before going to make sure they will still feed your kiddos for free 😀  Bookmark this page because I will be adding more of your favorite restaurants soon! If you want your restaurant to be included in or removed from our list, please email me at [email protected].  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I have never heard of Acadiana before, but it sounds like a nice roundup of places for families to eat with their kids there 🙂

      1. Actually, Acadiana is not a parish in south Louisiana. Acadia is a parish in south Louisiana. Acadiana is an entire area in south Louisiana that encompasses twenty two parishes. Acadia is one of the parishes that is encompassed by Acadiana, along with 21 others 🙂

  2. Sounds awesome! I love it when restaurants offer deals like this, especially to kids! It would be a nice family time too.

  3. This is coolness! I hope we also have this kind in our state. Though there are a few hotels that offer 50% off for kids, your list is simply again- coolness!

  4. How about that! more restos should offer free meals like these. I usually don’t mind paying for children but it’s a nice feeling if my nephews and/or nieces will have some special considerations or treatment.

  5. What a great list! I wonder what my local restuarants offer for kids. The kids get so excited by a special treat that’s just for them.

  6. I used to live near an Arcadia…tiny town in Pennsylvania. This is an awesome list and I’m sure some of them are available in other areas since they are chains. Nice to have the list!

  7. I love when restaurants offer free meals for kids. My girls don’t always eat much, so this is great for them. I don’t have to spend a lot to get them the food that they hardly eat anyways.

  8. This is very helpful sites to enjoy the kids meal for free. The only way my kids can get the free meal is from AppleBees when they read many books and received coupons.

    1. Thanks so much for your feedback 🙂 They had a special, one-time promotion on a Saturday, but their regular day for kids eating free here in Lafayette, is still on Tuesdays.

  9. Just an fyi… Chick-fil-a on Louisiana avenue doesn’t consider a meal salad a meal. They won’t give you a free kid’s meal if you order one of those. We’ve tried at least twice. We were told that its due to “new managers”.

  10. ACME Taco & Burger is closed 🙁 but Home Slice has free pizza buffet for children 9 & under (1 child for every adult purchase)
