Sorry kids, but you probably should eat something other than just candy on Halloween.

Luckily, at many restaurants on Halloween, kids eat free — and we're not just talking about all the Snickers, Skittles, and Hershey bars they collect trick-or-treating. Chains like IHOP, Friendly's, and 99 Restaurants offer customers free kids' meals on October 31, often with the purchase of an adult entrée, and sometimes with the requirement that kids dress in Halloween costumes.

Meanwhile, some restaurant chains, supermarkets, and stores offer Halloween freebies and deals to adults and kids alike. For example, no matter how old or young you are, you can get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut on Halloween when you're dressed in a costume. There's a great Halloween burrito deal at Chipotle too: Wear a costume and you can get a burrito or other Chipotle entrée for just $4.

Here are all the spots where kids eat free on Halloween, as well as where you can find great restaurant Halloween food deals available to everybody.
