    Is there a limit of just 1 child per 1 adult? I have 5 kids under 11 so just curious. Thanks.

    • NV2007

      yes, one free kids meal for every adult entree

    VERY cute! Just be careful – cannot combine with any other discounts means, if you are dining with a senior and they order off the senior menu, they consider that a discount. My mom ordered a smaller meal off of the senior menu one night with me and my 2 boys and they charged us full price for the rest of the mean (no free kids meals because they said the senior menu was already a discount). She got something like $1.75 off the regular price of a non-senior meal (vs saving the entire cost of 2 kids meals). Anyway, just beware. They were NOT very friendly when we told them to revise the bill, charge us full price for the “senior” meal and then discount the two kids meals. I wrote into IHop about it to tell them they should make this clearer (that senior meals count as discounts) and they never responded. 🙁

      *meal, not mean.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I agree, so fun DH!
