*Since this survey some of the restaurants have closed. We are aware but don’t want to alter the response.
Chick-fil-A. La Parilla - great kids meals. Mellow Mushroom.
Las Palmas. Quick, good, cheap and pleases everyone with a fun atmosphere
Mellow Mushroom. My kids like the food.
O'Charley's (free kids meals) and Pasquales (kids under 5 eat free).
O’Charleys because one adult entree = free kids meal.
Mexican cause it’s loud so no shame if ur kids are loud.
Chick- Fil-A. Their service is unbeatable.
Ichiban. While it is a bit more pricey, our girls love watching them cook!
Chick fil a
Mellow mushroom. Everyone can find something on the menu.
Las Palmas is always quick and easy (in and out fast with chips/salsa right when you walk in for hungry kiddos).
Chick-fil-A! Love the atmosphere and the workers!
El Zarape, great quality food and staff!
Mellow Mushroom, fun for kids and parents.
CiCi's Pizza. The variety of foods they have that do not contain egg(more challenging than you would think) and the $.
My son’s favorites are Provino’s, Chic-fil-a, Soho Hibachi, and Shane’s Rib Shack. We all love the food at Provino’s because it tastes fresher & less processed than most chain restaurants. Soho Hibachi is good food at a good price. My son loves it and it isn’t hamburgers or chicken fingers. Shane’s Rib Shack has a good variety and there peach cobbler is awesome.
Moe's southwest grill because it's not too expensive and both kids will eat it.
Country house buffet. They are so sweet with my boys and they have a decent selection.
Mellow mushroom. What kid doesn’t like pizza?
O'Charleys & Steak n Shake
Johnny's and Steak & Shake - best price kid meals.
Chick-fil-A, Johnny’s, Jefferson’s... they are all loud enough that young kids don’t stand out.
Schroeder’s or La Parilla
Jerusalem Grill and Chick-fil-A. Very kid friendly and they have good kid food selections for picky kiddos!
Provino’s - my kids love the food, salad and bread.
Waffle house! We love the jukebox. Where else can you pick the music that you and the entire restaurant get to listen to! We love blasting "let it go" to the wide mix of customers.
Chili’s and O’Charleys. They correspond with the kids well and aren’t trying to quiet them but more or less cater to them. Joking and such.
Chick fil a because people are friendly and it is clean
O’Charleys bc kids eat free. And for fast service we enjoy Steak & Shake (added bonus kids eat free on weekends).
My son loves Moe's (mexican) so we go there a lot. As far as nicer restaurants we go to Chili's or Longhorn, sometimes Olive Garden. And McDonald's is always easy!
