With a big family like ours, eating out together at a restaurant can be an expensive proposition. As a result, we are always keeping our eyes open for affordable alternatives between always eating at home and that $75 bill at a sit-down restaurant.
A number of eateries will give a free kids’ meal with the purchase of an adult meal, which is great, especially if you only have one child. However, Boston Market improves upon that by offering TWO free kids’ meals with every adult purchase.
It’s a deal the chain has offered on Saturdays and Sundays for several months already; this week, Boston Market announced it would extend the deal through January. During the program’s initial launch, the company provided more than 550,000 free kids’ meals.
Boston Market kids’ meals, which cost between $3.79 and $4.29, include a choice of entree, a small side dish, beverage and corn bread. Children, 14 and younger, can choose from chicken drumsticks, roast turkey, meatloaf or macaroni and cheese.
To be eligible, the adult must purchase an entree that costs $6 or more. No coupons are required, but children must be present. The purchase of a “Family Meal” includes four free kids’ meals.
I like Boston Market because it’s fast food without being “fast food.” You know what I mean. Not a burger and fries. You can sit down for a meal that resembles something I would have cooked at home. And we didn’t have to dirty the kitchen.
Sounds like dinner tonight.
