Kids Eat Free!

February 7, 2015


With our third baby just a few weeks from arriving, my husband has taken over dinner duty. He specifically requested that I compile a list of all the places in Blount County that he could take our kids to eat free. Here’s the beginning of a list, but I need your help! Please email me (at thriftychristyblog or message me on Facebook with the restaurant deals that you know about, and I will add them to the running list. Please also let me know if any deals on the list are no longer valid. “Kids eat cheaply” deals are also welcome! And, as much as I like Knoxville and surrounding areas, please make sure all restaurants are located in Blount County, as that’s my husband’s travel radius for dinner. (Unless they’re having “Kids Eat Free” at Ruth’s Chris, or someplace like that!) Thanks to you all for your help!!

Here is a list of the current “Kids Eat Free*” promotions for restaurants in Blount County. Please remember that restaurants can change their promotions at any time, and it’s always a good idea to call ahead to confirm they are still participating.

    Hi Christy,

    I came across your blog as it relates to a website ( that I am in the process of launching. It is a website that details weekly meal deals and kids deals for a given location. We are in the process of adding content for larger cities, but as I am from Maryville, we have also added deals for the surrounding area. Would you please consider reviewing the site for your audience. Thanks.
