Pizza

Coming from a large family, I can still remember the nights that were planned around local restaurants advertising, “kids eat free.” While it most certainly is an economically sound thing to do, it is also fun to create memories around weekly excursions with the kids.

Pack up the family and head to these restaurants in Allen where kids can eat for free, and parents can relax.

Although these details have been verified at the writing of this article, it’s a good idea to double check the information before going.

This list was compiled with the help of Google Reviews, Yelp Reviews, various mom-focused blogs and community sites, and the individual business websites.
