Where Kids Eat Free (Or Cheap) Around Rochester

Here's your guide to dining with the family around town.

We know it's hard for you to make a home-cooked meal every night, and with new restaurants popping up every other week around town, sometimes you want to take the family to try them out.

But it's not cheap for a family of four — or more — to go out to dinner.

It helps when kids can eat for free or for under $5.

We took our kids and ate our way around town (well, really, we called most of these places) and here's what we found.

Yes ... thanks for the tip, Stephanie. The Rojo deal is the same here in Rochester.

At Burgrz, a kid's meal (cheeseburger, hot dog, or chicken tenders plus fries and a milk or pop) is $4.49. The fries are enough for a few people, making the deal and the taste better than 5 Guys. Plus, it is a local establishment!
