Kids Eat Free in the Black Hills

Kids Eat Free in the Black Hills

Written on July 09th, 2020

Kids are notoriously picky eaters. It can be tough convincing them to eat foods that aren’t shaped like nuggets! We’ve all experienced the frustration of paying for a meal that our child has barely nibbled at. Fortunately, there are quite a few restaurants in the region that offer free (or inexpensive) meals to kids as long as there is a paying adult to accompany them. Keep in mind these offers can change without notice, so it’s always a good idea to contact the restaurant in advance.
