Locally-owned ‘Kids Eat Free’ Atlanta Restaurants Your Kids Will Love

I enjoy Kids Eat Free as much as the next guy, but I’m not a fan of IHOP, Applebee’s, and the like.  I want good, local food.  I want to support our locally owned and managed restaurants…the mom and pop shops that have taken the risk, make delicious food, and help our community thrive.  So I started looking for Kids Eat Free programs among this group of entrepreneurs.

atlanta kids eat free

I found a number of lists online, but they tended to be large chains or franchises…or the online information just wasn’t correct (so I learned after calling the restaurant.)  So I need your help.  I’ve found 30-something restaurants across the states. Help me grow this list! Help me identify restaurants that are owned by Georgia families and managed by Georgia families.  There can be multiple locations, as long as they are ALL in Georgia.  I’m not trying to “punish” the big guys, but I am trying to bring recognition to the local guys…will you help me?
