Children friendly restaurants

All of the American-chain restaurants are children friendly, providing high chairs, boosters, and even crayons and colouring books, along with a children's menu.
Some other restaurants cater to adults during the week, and on weekends they focus more towards the family. They hire clowns and entertainers on Saturdays and Sundays.

Then there are  restaurants -especially the most elegant or business-oriented ones- which won't allow children and will say so when you ask or visit. Some others won't prevent you from bringing your children along, but won't be able to provide a high chair or booster seat, nor accomodate food items to cater  to your little one's tastebuds.
With this variety of situations, we recommend that you call in advance before visiting the restaurant for the first time.

When visiting a restaurant with no children's menu, and if not sure what to order for your little ones, try for a plain quesadilla ("quesadilla sencilla") or a chicken broth with no condiments. Children usually like these selections.
Among the many options, here are a few recommendations for child-friendly restaurants, as well as their website for a location near you:

And of course, you will find McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, and the like everywhere you go.
