Houston-area restaurants are getting in the Halloween spirit offering free meals for kids (and adults) this weekend and October 31.  Some require a costume!  Here are a few of the opportunities to save some money when dining out this weekend and Halloween Monday:

Barry’s Pizza: Kids can eat free October 29-31 when they arrive in costume. Plus the annual pumpkin carving contest is tonight, October 25, 3 pm – 9 pm. Barry’s will provide the pumpkin and tools, or bring your own. Leave your pumpkin for judging through October 31. Barry’s Pizza is located at 6003 Richmond.

Bullrito’s: Kids in costume eat free on Halloween at Bullrito’s, 11 am – 9 pm, October 31. Limit one free Bull Bag with the purchase of a regular Bull Bag. Valid at all 15 Houston-area locations.

Chipotle: OK, so this one isn’t free…. Score a $2 “Boo”rito (bowl, salad, or tacos) on Halloween, 6 pm to closing, for everyone who wears a costume inspired by the family farm (regularly around $6.29). Ideas might be farm animals, crops, farm tools, and more. Chipotle is donating the proceeds, up to $1,000,000, to The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation and Farm Aid, to keep farmers on the land.
