Tully's Good Times
It's no secret to those who know me well that I am a big fan of Tully's and for years, I have loved the tradition of taking my picture with Tully the Turtle (that is me pictured above with my cousin Maria). One of the things I love about Tully's (well obviously other than they have the best chicken tenders on Earth) is that it is not just a sports bar but also family fun for everyone surrounded by all kinds of games and Syracuse memorabilia.
On that note, doing a post about affordable meals for the family made me want to start with Tully's. Sometimes they have some very cool late night specials and sometimes they have great deals for the kids. Right now they are running a promotion for children 10 and under. Below is their flyer taken directly from their website.
And speaking of favorite places around Syracuse, I don't know about you but I can't drive through Mattydale without wanting to stop in for some Zebbs. Did you know on Sundays that Zebbs offers a free meal (not including drink or in association with other discounts) for children under the age of 10? For the link to their children's menu and more information on this deal, you can click the link here. And since I love old school TV ads, here is a fun one of Zebbs to enjoy.
By the way, if you've never been to Zebbs, they are well known for their burgers but their shakes are great as well (dad always looked forward to having a shake when he went there).
This was also another heads up from Stephen on Twitter and I found they have a couple good family deals. Their offers include a Warehouse Wednesday menu, Saturdays & Sundays Family Feast for 4 for $30 (with the coupon you can find at this link) and a Kid's Monday deal where kid's meals are $1.99 with the purchase of an adult meal. And here is a link for more information on their deals.

Thank you @KimReid for this tip! Not a lot of details available on their website (which you can find here) but they do advertise that kids eat free lunch or dinner on Sundays and Mondays with a note that some restrictions apply so you may want to inquire before ordering. They also offer some happy hour special, daily drink specials and 10% if you have a ticket for that days SU sporting event.
Denny's will forever be known in Syracuse for the Coach Jim Boeheim quote as Syracuse was about to enter the ACC, which you can read more about on NunesMagician.com, However they also advertise that kids eat free on Tuesdays from 4pm-10pm as well as state on their website here that they still offer free grand slams on your birthday.
My friends at PizzaPromos.com also can help you find great deals on local pizzerias if you are looking for specials. They have a directory of local pizzerias, advertise deals for some and can help you sign up for text messaging services if you are interested in getting text alerts when your favorite pizzeria is offering a new special that day.
For example, thanks to Pizza Promos, I know that Paladino's Cicero Pizza (a personal favorite) has the following deals, among others, if you are interested:
M-Sun: Lg chz, 12 wgs-$19; Lg chz& 24 wgs-$25; (2) Lg chz pizzas & 24 wgs-$34
That is my list for today! If you know of anyone else doing free kids meals or great values for the family, please feel free to contact me and I will do another listing in the future or maybe do a special post just for them, Thank you and I truly hope you enjoy your meal deals. Central New York is a beautiful place to live and there are some great businesses and deals to help you enjoy it even more.
