Kids Eat Free at Steak ‘n Shake + Enter to Win $50 Gift Card

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

I have partnered with Steak n’ Shake to share this information with you. All opinions are my own.

We have three kids.  And, like many families across the country, we love to take them out to dinner from time to time.  We do it not only because it can be convenient, but it also gives them a chance to learn the right way to behave in public and put those manners they have learned to even better use.

Kids Eat Free Every Day

However, we find ourselves in the same situation as many of you as well.  It can be expensive.  With three kids and two adults, the cost of a meal out usually runs $50 — or more!  That limits our meals out to once a week.  Otherwise, it is just too pricey.

Of course, we do many things to save money.  We look for coupons.  We have our younger kids often split meals, as they do not eat much.  But, the best trick we’ve found is to visit restaurants where kids eat free!

Unfortunately, there are not too many of these offers close to where we live.  They are around the Kansas City metro area, but that means having to drive a distance to get there, which defeats the purpose.  Paying more in fuel and time to get a free meal just doesn’t make sense.

One of our kids’ favorite places to dine is Steak n’ Shake. We visit our local restaurant frequently.  Not only is it just hop, skip and a jump from our house, they also offer kids eat free all weekend long!  , Which works perfectly for us as that is when we normally go out to dinner anyhow!

Steak n’ Shake has been serving up premium Steakburgers and hand-dipped milkshakes since 1934. It has become a family tradition and is a favorite of kids and adults alike.  They have long offered kids eat free on the weekends, but they are now changing things up!  They are rolling out a new promotion in participating locations:


Now, before you run out to your location tonight to get in on this offer, it is important to note that right now, this offer is only available in it’s corporate locations.  That means the one near you may not yet have this offer.  So, make sure you click here to view all participating locations.

When you do get the chance to take advantage of Kids Eat Free All Day Every Day, you’ll be able to enjoy your own meal and family bonding time with the added benefit of it being a free meal for your kids. There’s truly something for everyone on the menu! Plus, a retro Steak ‘n Shake hat and activity book to round out the family outing. And, what the kids don’t know won’t hurt them.

The offer is valid for dine-in only, providing one free Kids Plate to children 12 and under for every $9 spent. Kids Plates are served with a choice of fries or applesauce, and include:

  • Original Steakburger™
  • Mini Corn Dogs
  • KRAFT® Macaroni & Cheese
  • Steakburger™ Minis
  • Hot Dog
  • Grilled Cheese
  • Chicken Fingers

Kids eat free

We took our kids out to dinner this past weekend.  And, as usual, they had a great time. From the hats they wear to the cards they decorate, they are entertained and enjoy themselves while waiting for our meal.  If you ask my oldest, the best part of the entire meal is always taking home one of those delicious hand-dipped milkshakes.

And, there is only one flavor that works if you are 12 — Birthday Cake. What’s your favorite?
