Been awhile since you treated the clan to a night on the town? We get it—feeding all those kiddos can quickly get expensive. Lucky for you, Restaurant Week has 3-course meals for the whole family from 120+ of Columbus’ best restaurants—all at a fraction of the usual cost!

Load the kids into the old Wagon Queen Family Truckster and set them loose on an unsuspecting waitstaff. Here are 5 Restaurant Week destinations to please youngsters and parents alike!

El Vaquero | Multiple locations
With eleven locations to serve you, Restaurant Week at El Vaquero is a no-hassle family fiesta. With nachos, quesadillas, and sugary desserts on the RW menu, this local favorite is sure to be a hit with the little ones.

Beer Barrel | Multiple locations
Don’t let the name fool you—this family-friendly eatery has a huge menu that’s sure to have something for everyone. Beer Barrel’s Restaurant Week offerings sample some their standout items, including their killer pizza. And after all, kids and pizza go together like…pizza and kids!

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Spaghetti Warehouse | 397 W Broad St
No kid-friendly Restaurant Week roundup would be complete without the prospect of spaghetti and meatballs. Spaghetti Warehouse is an obvious choice in that department. Plus, the kids will love gawking at all the cool crap hanging on the walls at this classic Italian eatery.

Pecan Penny’s | 113 E Main St
Spaghetti sauce not messy enough for you? Set the little tykes loose on some BBQ at Pecan Penny’s. So maybe they get a little sauce on their clothes. Between three courses with options like poutine, pulled pork, and a slice of pecan pie, you’ll be too stuffed to care.

Rusty Bucket | Multiple locations
While its happy hour makes The Rusty Bucket a perennial contender in our annual Columbest voting, the restaurant’s classic American fare is perfectly suited for a night out with the whole family. Thanks to several convenient locations, enjoying Restaurant Week at The Rusty Bucket is only as hard as walking out the front door.

Frankly, you’ll love the new hot dog restaurant open now in Graceland

Hot-diggity-dog, there's a new hot dog stand in central Ohio! Links-N-Lemonade has completed its transition from food truck-only to brick-and-mortar, slinging creatively-topped dogs in the Graceland Shopping Center.

Links-N-Lemonade's menu consists of several hot dogs topped with different sauces and sides like cole slaw, coney sauce, and fries. Customers can opt for the classic all-beef dog or go for the veggie option.

Guests can choose from predetermined loaded hot dogs or customize their own with up to 10 toppings. Fresh-cut fries, both loaded and not, and fresh-squeezed lemonade are also offered.

Owner Damon Owens began serving his all-beef, quarter-pound dogs out of a food cart in 2011 with hopes of opening a restaurant soon thereafter.

Columbus Dispatch reports the recession slowed him down, but income from a coveted spot at Tanger Outlets Columbus off Interstate 71 put him in position to buy a food truck in 2017. From there came the 128 Graceland Blvd. restaurant, which opened in June.

Damon continues to operate his food truck, having just made an appearance at the Columbus Food Truck Festival.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. For more information visit linksnlemonade.com.

Prost'ing has been postponed for an Olde Towne East brewery. The opening of Gemut Biergarten at 734 Oak St has been pushed back indefinitely due to "unforeseeable circumstances."

The brewery was supposed to open to the public on August 16, but ran into a "little bump with the state."

When it does open, guests can expect European and German-style lagers and pilsners brewed by former Four String Brewing Co. employees Kyle Hofmeister, Rob Camstra, and Nick Guyton. Gemut Biergarten is owned by Hofmeister and his wife Chelsea Rennie.

In addition to brews, the venture will serve wine, cocktails, and traditional German and European fare.
