Money can’t be tight these days (we are in a recession people!) but I’ve compiled a list of restaurants where not only do you get a value meal, but these places are very kid friendly! What’s better than eating delicious food and getting the bang for your buck!

What Folks are Saying!

The Sacramento "City of Trees Food Tour" is the best I have been on. We walked the back streets and I learned so much about the history of many buildings and Sacramento itself. We tasted at 7 restaurants. The tastings were filling and the quality of the food was great. The menu was diversified. Appetizers, wine, salad, soup, deserts, smoothies, and fresh pasta. I would highly recommend this tour.
