Dine out on “Kids eat FREE” Nights. Many places have specific nights each week where kids will eat FREE if you purchase an adult meal.
Go early! Especially for things like Chinese takeout, many places have lunch specials, so if you are wanting to eat dinner out, order it during the lunch specials and then reheat it at dinner time. Also if you are planning to go out for a special occasion make it a lunch date instead of a dinner date. Lunchtime prices are cheap then dinner time!
