EVOS

I love burgers and fries. And I am loving the new trend in burger joints. Yes, Buns down on Franklin Street is fantastic, but I love the kid-friendliness of EVOS over by Trader Joe's.

First off, EVOS removes some of the guilt over serving your child fast food. Let's be honest, this is still fast food. Burgers and fries generally aren't going to be the healthiest options out there. But EVOS makes it better by airbaking (not frying), using organic products for the shakes, real fruits for the fruitshakes, and naturally raised beef for their burgers. And it all still tastes good!

For adults, there are also wraps and salads. For kids, the menu isn't too large, with burgers, chicken fingers, shakes, and hot dogs. But they label it as "Healthy Kids" and say "No shiny toys, and no mega playgrounds. Just ingredients you will feel great about giving your kids. And 50-70% less fat to boot. Without sacrificing the discerning taste of today's kids." That's a pretty tall promise! I like it, but also can't claim I did a lot of research into how true it is. It did make me feel better about the food there though.

What I do know is that I like to eat here (especially enjoying the ketchup bar).

I REALLY like that on Sundays kids eat free. If you buy 1 adult meal that includes fries and a drink you get a free kids meal. Score!

I also appreciate the lounge area in the back of the dining area. There are large chairs, soft ottomans, and some room for little ones to roam. As C hates to be in a high chair too long (no matter how nice the high chair is), he loved the big, comfy chairs.

Changing tables in the very large restrooms, and it is very clean.

Thanks for the review! Do you have some sort of master list of Restaurants with free kids meals on certain days in the area?? I think Tuesday is the Loop...

WRAL.com's Go Ask Mom has an incredible list of Kids Eat Free restaurants.

Hi Charlotte- We like WRAL's Go Ask Mom restaurant database, too, and recommend them on our By Day page (http://mominchapelhill.blogspot.com/p/by-day.html). But it isn't comprehensive (EVOS isn't on there, for example). You can always email them with information though and they will update it. A totally great link to bookmark, though!

I thought The Loop was on Tuesdays as well but honestly haven't been in a few months. Let me know if you find out!
