Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free {or Almost Free} in the Fort Worth Area

The cost of living is rising before our eyes, and most expenses seem out of our control. Things like gas and groceries are essentials, and it can be hard scrounging enough to cover the basics. Still, it’s nice to take the family out on the town for a breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. 

That’s where Fort Worth Moms comes in.

We’ve identified dozens of free — or just about free — dining options for your little ones all around the Fort Worth area, any day of the week. 

NOTE: Details may vary by location, and we did the best we could to provide accurate information. Please verify the promotion with your local restaurant before visiting.
