Omaha Restaurants With Free Kids Meals

Hopefully, by now, you’ve realized how much I love and enjoy promoting locally-owned Omaha restaurants. With that in mind, I’ve got a new list for you. This list has all the places I know where kids can eat free in Omaha restaurants (as well as some fun weekly entertainment promotions that make dining out a little more enjoyable for families).

Updated: This post was first published in 2013 and updated in February 2020 to have current and updated restaurant information.

If you know of promotions that aren’t on this list, leave a comment with the details and I’ll add it. 

Dining in Omaha with kids isn't always easy or cheap, so check out this post to find out daily specials at locally-owned restaurants. There are kids eat free promotions, as well as some kid-centric entertainment on certain days like roving magicians! #Omaha #restaurants #Nebraska #eatlocal #kidseatfree

    • I never thought about it much, either, since up until now, my kids didn’t eat enough to warrent than own meals. But, now they’re eating more food than I want to share!

    • Thanks! I miss having a tiny baby to care for, but it’s pretty fun watching your children try new foods (and sometimes actually like them).
