This Halloween, kids can get some great free treats (and even free dinner!) before they go trick-or-treating and straight into a sugar high.

Check out these 4 venues for some sweet deals:

1. IHOP
ihop

Kids can create their own free, scary face pancake from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m on October 31st (must be 12-and-under).

2. Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme is offering EVERYONE a free "boo-tiful doughnut" on Halloween when they wear their costume to the store. All treats, no tricks here -- just one donut per costumed customer.

3. Chipotle

Chipotle's "Boorito" is where it's at -- drop by the store after 5 pm in full trick-or-treating gear for a $3 burrito.

4. Olive Garden
