Run, Forrest, run… down to Bubba Gump Shrimp to get a free kid’s meal on Halloween with the purchase of an adult entree. The offer is limited to one per table and is not valid with any other discount. Tax and gratuity are not included.

8. Chuck E. Cheese’s

As part of its Chucktober promotion, every kid dressed in a Halloween costume receives 50 free tickets through Oct. 31. You can also snag a free slice of Chuck E. Cheese’s Candy Corn Pizza every hour on the hour from 4 to 8 p.m. on Halloween, while supplies last.

And we know what you might be thinking — we thought the same thing. No, it’s not a pizza made out of candy corn. The Candy Corn Pizza is actually a white pizza topped with sharp cheddar cheese and garlic mozzarella cheese arranged to look just like candy corn.

9. Cici’s Pizza

Before the kids start collecting treats for their Halloween candy buffets, treat them to a free kids buffet at Cici’s! The offer is available with the purchase of an adult buffet and a regular size or larger drink. Limit one child per adult purchase, and the kiddo must be in costume.

10. Joe’s Crab Shack

Get the kiddos decked out in their Halloween costumes and head down to your local Joe’s Crab Shack for up to three free kids meals this Halloween when you show this flyer to your server. Make sure you go hungry, too — one adult entree purchase is required for each free kids meal.
