Family Dining

Almost everything about Springfield is family-friendly, including dining options. With everything from fast food to a sit-down dinner with mashed potatoes and mac’ n’ cheese, you’re sure to find something to please the kids and everyone else in the group.

For an iconic experience, try Steak n’ Shake, including the downtown location that’s on the National Register of Historic Places thanks to its longevity and location on Route 66. Or check out Red’s Giant Hamburg modeled after the original Red’s which is known as the first drive-thru restaurant in the world. 

Entertainment goes hand-in-hand with a huge buffet at America’s Incredible Pizza Co. where arcade games, indoor go-karts and many other activities go along with a giant buffet offering more than 150 items from pizza to tacos and dessert. Themed dining rooms and a fun atmosphere will have the kids begging to stay just a little longer at this establishment. 

At Andy B’s Social Bowl, you’ll also find games, bowling and a delicious menu in the full-service restaurant.

The list of options the family will enjoy goes on and on. Check out the options listed below.
