After a long week, mom and dad need a break from cooking, right? Sure, you deserve a break, but what if you want to take the kiddos along? It sure isn’t fun to be the ones with a screaming child at an upscale restaurant when adults are trying to enjoy a fancy meal. Here are five restaurants that welcome children and serve great food: 

Souper Jenny
This fun and funky Buckhead favorite is buzzing at lunch, so if you want to bring the kids when it is less hectic, come in during the Thursday evenings when they offer grilled cheese night - something both kids and adults can agree on. Get a yummy soup and sandwich on Thursday from 5 to 10 pm. Even better, a new Westside location just opened!

Taqueria Del Sol
With locations all around the city, Taqueria del Sol is some of the best Mexican food in the city. Although they don’t take reservations (seating is first come, first served only after placing your order at the counter), the line moves quickly. This is the perfect spot to bring the family on one of those nights cooking just isn’t going to happen. Fill your belly with shrimp and corn chowder and delicious chicken, beef or fish tacos. 

Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria
Located downtown, Max’s has three-hour validated parking in the adjacent garage. Max’s has coloring placemats for kids and sometimes they will give dough to kids to play with while food is being prepared. What kid wouldn’t love that? 
Bonus: The portions of kid’s pizzas are rather large, possibility enough to feed two children. 

Chick a Biddy
Owned by the same owners as Midtown’s Bantam + Biddy, Chick-a-Biddy serves up fresh food suitable for adults and kids in Atlantic Station. As the name suggests, chicken is king here. Expect to find items like chicken sandwiches and chicken and waffles. Don’t leave without having the sweet potato fries. Children will enjoy chicken tenders or the quesadilla. 

Doc Chey’s
If you are a foodie craving Asian food, you might not head to this Morningside spot. But if you are parent in search of a restaurant to bring your kids that is different from the usual, you’ll want to give Doc Chey’s a try. Their fried rice and lo mein kids menu options are large and satisfying. Tip: Join their club and get offers for free kids meals.
