There's nothing wrong with getting a great deal, especially when you have kids. There are some terrific choices for restaurants in the Greater Phoenix area where you can go and take advantage of a Kids Eat Free program. Here are the ones I found. A few of them aren't exactly free, but they are pretty close!
All programs, details and prices subject to change without notice. Please call the restaurant in advance to verify the Kids Eat Free promotion requirements, including the hours available. I also have Kids Eat Free program information in a weekly planner format, if you are looking for these specials on a particular day of the week.
