  1. Cozy Café is in Ankeny now and kids eat free on Mondays and Tuesdays

  2. Guadalajaras in Ankeny is tricky. Your child has to be under 8 and it is only with certain adult meals. I thought the food was overpriced too compared to other, nicer Mexican restaurants and service was slow…my kids were ready to leave before the food finally arrived.

  3. The chicken coop doesnt offer this anymore. At least at the one in Urbandale

  4. Fuddruckers only offers their deal on Tuesdays between 5pm and 9pm.

  5. Could you please contact me about the Hy-Vee specials?

  6. I would not go back to Village Inn with children. Numerous reviews mirrored our 1+ hour wait today. Pathetic excuse for a restaurant. We were sat by a table filled with dirty dishes. Ordered our food right away. They kept cleaning tables and piling more dirty dishes on the table beside us. After waiting an HOUR for grilled chicken breast and a side of broccoli, I requested to speak with a manager. The GENERAL MANAGER got snarky with me, never once apologizing and when I said I wouldn’t pay for the meal after that experience all he said is “I’ll take care of it” and stormed off. The server wasn’t any better and his remarks were “we get busy on holidays” when I pointed out he sat people AFTER we ordered yet brought them their food while we still waited for ours, he had no good excuse.

  7. The Fighting burrito and Godfather’s in Ankeny, have both closed their stores.

  8. Nastassia N Tappa April 3, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    Qdoba at Clive and Ingersoll do not participate for kids eat free. Can we get off the list?

  9. Famous Dave’s is incorrect – we were there this evening and they said they do not offer it in West Des Moines. Some franchises do but she said they do not.

  10. The fighting burritto in Ankeny has the same Monday deal, kids free Monday evening.

  11. Maxie’s no longer offers the kids eat free on Saturday. Their website still states this and they honored it for us. However, they stated that “the website is locked and they can not change it”.

  12. Famous Daves- Kids eat Free on Tuesday
