Times are tough but you’ve still got mouths to feed. It’s nice to go out to eat but with one or more kids, the food bill can add up pretty quickly. Luckily, many restaurants offer free meals for kids with paid adult entrées. Here are the four best places for kids to eat free in Santa Clarita.
Sisley Italian Kitchen
On Sundays, go get a taste of Italy at Sisley Italian Kitchen. This is a nice, clean restaurant. It’s more of an adult restaurant. However, is adjacent to the mall where there are plenty of activities. While you wait, go play in the padded kids play area upstairs, sit outside or go on the carousel. The best part is that kids eat free on Sundays. The offer is that with each adult entrée, kids, aged two to ten, receive a free cheese pizza. The offer is not good for parties and cannot be combined with other offers. The only downsize to this is that the offer is not good for any kid’s meal. Yet, I don’t know many kids who do not like cheese pizza.
As for adults, there are a wide variety of salads, pizzas, pastas, fish and family style platters. Sit outside on the patio for great sidewalk ambience and the kids can be a little louder too. Both you and your kids will love the fresh breadsticks that accompany the meal.
Sisley Italian Kitchen is located at 24202 W. Valencia Blvd., Valencia (661) 287-4444. Sunday hours are 11:00 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Islands is a great place to go with kids. They give out fun little activity mats and four-packs of crayons. The food comes in baskets and there are lots of comfy booths. On Tuesdays after 4pm, kids eat for free from the Gremmie Menu. They have tiki tenders, burgers, a quesadilla and other kids friendly dishes. Also, all Gremmie meals are served with Island fries or carrots and applesauce and a drink.
Islands is located at 24180 Valencia Blvd Valencia Ca 91355 (661) 284-5903 Sunday – Thursday the hours are 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM
La Cocina Bar and Grill
Kids eat for free on Tuesdays after 4pm at this cozy Mexican Cocina. The atmosphere is relaxed. Although there are two locations, realize that you might have to wait because it is a popular establishment. Also, there is not a huge waiting area inside. Also, the bar area is popular but not rowdy. Yet, realize it may be loud. The fajitas here are good as is the tortilla soup. Also the portions are big and there are tons of complete meals under $10.00. The kid’s menu has chicken strips and standard Mexican fare.
There are two locations to serve you.
28022 Seco Canyon Rd Santa Clarita, 91390 (661) 297-4546 and 28076 Bouquet Cyn Rd Santa Clarita, 91350 (661) 513-0142. Parking is more difficult at the Seco Canyon location.
What? You want pancakes for dinner? If you’ve ever heard this from your kids, then go to Dennys. Since Denny’s is a chain, they have a policy of kids eat free every Tuesday and Saturday from 4-10 p.m at many locations. You must order one adult entree for every two kids eating free. For kids try the spaghetti Marinara or a junior grand slam. There are fun sides like veggies with ranch or vanilla yogurt with a strawberry topping. I pretty much only get pancakes when I go to Dennys. Call before you go to make sure your location is participating in the kids eat free program. Right now they have two pancakes for two dollars and a grand slam for four dollars. Also, get endless soup and salad for six dollars. This place is great because kids can be kids. Most locations have a few games up front. It’s probably not the healthiest place but good for every once in awhile.
