🍽 36 Applebee's in NJ are offering free kids meals from Feb. 19 to Feb. 27

🍽 The promotion is in response to Nettie's in Tinton Falls announcing it will no longer serve kids under 10

🍽 Every free kids' meal must be accompanied by a purchase of an adult entree

After Nettie’s House of Spaghetti in Tinton Falls announced on Facebook that starting March 8, they will no longer allow children under 10 to dine in the restaurant, another popular eatery wants parents to know that kids are allowed at their establishment.

Starting Feb. 19 through Feb. 27, kids under 12 years old will be able to eat free at all 36 Applebee’s locations in New Jersey.

“Applebee’s is all about families and kids so after we saw the Nettie’s article, we were inspired to do something that would remind our customers that KIDS ARE WELCOME at our restaurants. It’s why we’re offering a Kids Eat Free promotion to help families out over the school break,” said Kurt Pahlitzsch, VP of Operations at Doherty, the parent-owned company of Applebee’s.

Every free kids’ meal must be accompanied by a purchase of an adult entrée at Applebee’s owned by Doherty in New Jersey and not in other states.
