2016 Halloween Dining Deals
Dinner on Halloween is always a challenge between school and Trick or Treat. Over the years, we’ve taken advantage of a few Halloween dining deals for a convenient meal right after school.
With trick or treat hours starting as early as 5p in Ann Arbor, stopping for dinner on the way home from school (and the class Halloween party) is a great choice.
IHOP will be celebrating Halloween on Monday, October 31 with a Free Scary Face Pancake for kids ages 12 & under. The deal is available from 7a-10p (and only for Dine-in customers). We’ve taken advantage of this deal a couple of times over the years. It makes for a great early dinner between school and trick or treating.
IHOP is located at 4221 Ellsworth Rd, Ypsilanti near the Carpenter Rd Meijer.
Chipotle is offering a $3 Boo-rito for anyone (adults and children) who visit in costume. The deal is available on Halloween from 3p-closing. There are 3 Ann Arbor Chipotle locations:
- 235 S. State St
- 858 Briarwood Circle
- 3354 E. Washtenaw Ave
We did the Chipotle Boo-rito deal in 2012 between school and trick or treat. And yes, my witch’s hat counted as a costume for me.
Piada Italian Street Food is offering Kids Eat Free (Friday, October 28). Kids in costume will receive a free kids meal with the purchase of an adult meal. Paid is located at 311 S. State St. Check out our Piada review. Note: I originally listed the deal as valid on Halloween. When I went to redeem it, we discovered the error in date.
Chuck E. Cheese
Celebrate Chucktober at Chuck E. Cheese. All kids who come to Chuck E Cheese in their costume during the month of October will receive 50 Free Tickets. On Saturdays and Sundays there will be an Airhead Candy Splash for kids to sing and dance and get treats.
Chuck E. Cheese is located at 2655 Oak Valley Dr, Ann Arbor.
Noodles & Company
There are 3 Ann Arbor Noodles & Company locations:

BurgerFi is offering a free custard to all guests in costume on Halloween.
Locally, BurgerFi is located at 1235 S. University Avenue. Check out our review from this summer.
Kids Eat Free on Mondays
Since Halloween is on a Monday, the regular Monday Kids Eat Free options are options.
- The Original Cottage Inn – 512 E. William Street in Ann Arbor – Kids Night 5-8p. Kids Eat Free, Crafts, and Cupcake Creation Station. (Verified 10/2014)
- Harvest Moon Cafe – 5484 West Michigan Avenue (between US-23 and I-94) – Kids Eat free after 3p (Verified 9/2015)
Dine at Home
With Halloween on Saturday this year, we likely will be at home before trick or treat, so dinner at home is a great option. A few weeks ago I shared an idea for an Easy Halloween Dinner that would still give you lots of time for last minute holiday prep – costumes, pumpkin carving, etc.
If I hear about other deals before Halloween, I’ll be sure to update the post. If you hear about an extra deal, please let me know in the comments, on Facebook, or by email.
