Best Family-friendly Restaurants in Shawnee, Kansas
Tired of being consistently disappointed by your neighborhood restaurant. You know, the one that claims to be family-friendly, but always has obnoxious drunkards at the bar (and hey, the food’s pretty crappy too). That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the best family-friendly restaurants in Shawnee, so you don’t have to deal with all that nonsense.
Take the family to Pizza West for made-from-scratch salads, pastas, and pizza. This place is inexpensive, even cheaper if your kids are 12 and under. They can choose from kid favorites like mac n’ cheese, cheese or pepperoni pizza, and noodles with marinara. Just $2.99, drink included. Free refills on ice tea and soda, regardless of your age. They’ve even got a buffet (I know, buffets can be icky and scary), but theirs has gotten rave reviews.
Believe me, kids don’t mind getting a little messy with their food, so bring them to Char House Barbeque and Fried Chicken. Try the saucy ribs and tender pulled pork sandwiches. The southern style fixins’ will fill their tummies right up, so they won’t be begging for snacks later. Prices are very reasonable for how hearty the food is. This place is family-owned and run, which means they understand family dining pretty darn well.
Treat the family to some delicious Mexican food at Jose Pepper’s. You’ll enjoy their inexpensive margaritas while your kids chow down on some creamy cheese dip and $4.29 food items off the kid’s menu. Main dishes average about $8, and kids get free drink refills. This place gets packed, so don’t worry if your kids are being loud. Plus, their service is super speedy. You’ll be putting your little ones to bed in no time, both full and happy.
