To Celebrate the Launch of Kids Eat Free, the Moe’s Mini Chef Contest will Allow Kids the Opportunity to Create the Next Kids Menu Item

ATLANTA, GA (April 14, 2021) - Today, Moe’s Southwest Grill® is announcing that beginning Sunday, April 18, all restaurants nationwide will offer one kids meal for children under 12 years old every Sunday with the purchase of an adult entree. Children can customize their kids meal with a kid-sized burrito, quesadilla or taco plus a cookie and drink.
Disclaimer: one free kid's meal with the purchase of an adult entrée of $6 or more. Kids must be 12 and under. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Valid in-store only at participating locations.

Moe’s always allows customers to pick and choose their fresh ingredients to build the meal that they’re craving, but in honor of the Kids Eat Free program Moe’s is taking personalization for kids to a whole new level. To kick off the program, Moe’s is teaming up with former reality TV star and mom, Cameran Eubanks Wimberly, to announce the Moe’s Mini Chef Contest, giving children the opportunity to create and name their very own kids menu item.

One lucky winner will receive a free trip for two to a Moe’s test kitchen where they’ll have a VIP food tasting with Caroline Morris, Moe’s Executive Chef, a personal photoshoot with their custom menu item which will be available in Moe’s restaurants across the country and a year’s supply of Moe’s chocolate chip cookies.

“I know first-hand that finding a restaurant the entire family agrees on can be a challenge - especially because we have a picky eater in my household”, said Cameran Eubanks Wimberly. “My daughter is very selective about what she likes to eat and is going through a stage where she only enjoys five foods, one of which is a chicken quesadilla. Thankfully we can get her quesadillas from the kids menu at Moe’s and she can customize them to her liking.”

Navigating meal time with children who are picky eaters is no easy feat as parents can struggle to find meals that aren’t just tasty, but also feature fresh, quality ingredients they can feel good about and the whole family enjoys. The Kids Eat Free program will allow more access to those foods at Moe’s and the Moe’s Mini Chef Contest gives kids the chance to explore their tastes in new ways.

“Kids love to help in the kitchen, so the Moe’s Mini Chef Contest is the perfect way to encourage our youngest fans to experiment with great tasting ingredients like all natural white meat chicken, handcrafted guac or made-in-house pico and salsas,” said Caroline Morris, Executive. “The possibilities are endless and we’re excited to give kids an opportunity to have fun and get creative in the kitchen with their families. We can’t wait to see all the delicious creations to come!”

Here’s how it works:

  • Starting April 14 through May 16, families can enter the contest via
  • Moe’s Executive Chef will select three finalists based on the menu item’s creativity, flavor combination and ability to capture the essence of Moe’s.
  • On May 31, fans can head to Moe’s Facebook (@MoesSouthwestGrill) to cast their vote for their favorite creation and to determine the winner
  • The winner will be announced on Facebook on June 10.
