Between work, getting them to extracurricular activities and school, parents in Billings are pulled in so many different directions it’s amazing we even remember we have kids, let alone feed them! Have no fear; the Realty Billings Team has put together a handy list of places in Billings where the family can dine that won’t break your budget because at these Billings eateries, kids eat free (or almost)!
Call ahead to ensure they’re still offering the special
Applebee’s has a great kids’ menu and on Tuesdays you can purchase an entire meal, from the “Hungry” menu for 99 cents or $1.99 for items on the “Super Hungry” menu. Applebee’s has two Billings locations: 740 S 24th St. W and 204 Main St.
On Tuesdays from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. Denny’s in Billings (501 N 27th St.) offers kids a freebie. On the kids’ menu you’ll find grilled chicken on a stick, Jr. bacon ranch cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, mac & cheese and a host of other kid-favorites. Denny’s has two locations in Billings: 2010 Overland Ave. and 501 N 27th St.
Dickie’s Barbecue Pit
Yum! What kid doesn’t like barbecue? And even if yours don’t, there are other items on Dickie’s menu to tempt them (chicken nuggets, sandwiches and more) so you can sit back and get your own bbq fix while the kid (age 12 and younger) eats free. The offer includes one free kid’s meal (from the kids’ menu) per paid adult meal of equal or greater value and you must dine in to receive the free meal. This happens only on kid’s night, which is every Sunday evening. Call for times: 406-969-3909.
You know if a restaurant bills itself as “family friendly,” they’re going to enjoy catering to the wee ones. And Golden Corral does just that every day for kids age 3 and younger (limit two free meals per adult). You’ll find Golden Corral in Billings at 570 S. 24Th St. West.
HuHot Mongolian Grill
More sophisticated junior eaters will love their choices at HuHot Mongolian Grill and on Wednesdays after 4 p.m., they can get their fill for free, with the purchase of an adult meal. HuHot is located at 1806 King Ave. in Billings.
From its original restaurant in Hull, Iowa (1981), to building a chain of franchises that includes 200 restaurants in 13 states, it’s safe to say, Pizza Ranch knows what it’s doing. And it knows how to treat families too. Many of their locations offer a free Kid’s Buffet with the purchase of an Adult Buffet at regular price on Kids’ Night, including the Billings location at 2505 King Ave W. Kids’ night is Tuesday, from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. Call ahead to ensure the special is still running: 406-294-3663.
Sam & Louie’s
For every $12 purchase on Sundays at Sam & Louie’s, you’ll receive one kid’s meal FREE! The little ones can choose from pizza, mac & cheese, wings, pasta and chicken bites or chicken breast. Sam & Louie’s is located at 1595 Grand Ave. in Billings.
Restaurants frequently change their policies so it’s a good idea to call ahead to ensure that your child will receive a free meal and to verify the days and times for kids’ freebies.
