Kids Eat Free

Fairfax – Centreville – Chantilly

Updated 8/29/2014


What this Internet needs is a good web site where you can locate restaurants that offer free or cheap kids' meals.  Unfortunately, we don't have one.  A couple of sites have tried, but those sites aren't well maintained or particularly thorough.  So I've started my own, primarily covering my home turf of Fairfax, Centreville, and Chantilly, Virginia, and branching out into neighboring communities.


Got any additions, corrections, or further info?  E-mail them to carl at bigfool dot com (and please put "Kids Eat Free" in your subject line).
