Family Fun Kids Eat Free

Families bond over delicious food in Southwest Louisiana; whether at a backyard barbecue, weekend brunch or casual summer night out to eat. As many of our favorite restaurants have reopened their dining rooms during COVID-19 recovery, they’ve also resumed their signature Kids Nights where kids can eat free or at a discount.


Alex Duplechin, manager of Casa Mañana on Ryan Street, said the community’s support has been incredible during the pandemic. Kids eat free Monday nights at Casa Mañana (two free kids’ meals per adult entrée). "All the regular faces that have been die-hard fans for years flocked to us when we re-opened our doors and have been very accommodating with longer wait times, especially on Monday nights,” Duplechin said. "We hope, once we get past these first couple of phases, to get face painting and the magician back in so our Kids Night can be great again, but right now we definitely appreciate all the support.”


Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is another family-owned restaurant that offers kid-friendly specials every day in Lake Charles and Moss Bluff. Pit Boss Rebecca Curtis said the daily promotion differs from Dickey’s Corporate, where kids eat free on Sundays.


"We figured offering it every day makes the kids happy and helps the parents out, especially during this crazy time,” Curtis said.

Family Meal Options 


When COVID-19 prevented families from dining in at all, some locally-owned restaurants like Southern Spice chose to add family-style meals to their menus. 


Southern Spice in Moss Bluff (277 US-171, Suite 1; 337-855-0010) was still offering family-style options in June, General Manager Brandon LeLeux said, because they were still receiving many to-go orders. "All of our family meals are items we have on our menu; it’s just the option to get it at a better price in a larger quantity,” LeLeux said. "They come with two large sides and serve about four people. Our best seller is probably our fried fish.”
