Don't feel like cooking? Can't say we blame you!

The South Hills of Pittsburgh has AMAZING restaurants, but taking the whole family out can get expensive. Luckily, many offer great meal deals for families, if you know where to find them. We've done the work to find as many restaurants that offer kids eat free nights, family entertainment, or just great deals for kids.

All offers on this list were confirmed at the time of publishing. When in doubt, please validate special with the restaurant prior to arrival. While we do our best to stay on top of all of our guides, should you come across any new or expired deals while dining out in the South Hills, please let us know about them HERE, so we can update the list. 

Whether you want to dine-in or eat out, here are restaurants where kids in the South Hills can eat FREE (usually with the purchase of an adult entrée); or at least without breaking the bank:
