Rancho has free refills

I just learned on this trip that Rancho del zocalo gives free soda refills. They have water cups too, so it was easy for the kids to share a soda and then refill it if one wanted more.

Where else refills sodas?

When you say free refills are you referring to refills while you eat or can you come back at any time throughout the day a get a refill?

I had heard that Rancho works the same way as Pizza Port with regard to refills. At Pizza Port, you can have one free refill during that one visit, and you may be asked to show your receipt. Usually the cashier will apprise you of this rule during your purchase.

Refills while you are there eating. Just make sure to bring your receipt in case you are asked.

Yes, refills can be had while you're eating there.

Using a water cup to share sodas with your kids, however, is stealing. Great lesson?

I am not sure I agree. How is it stealing? The soda was purchased and includes a refill. The poster is not getting anything they didn't pay for.

I think it is 'stealing' if one person in the party orders a refillable soda and shares it with others in the party who ordered water. But when a soda is $5 I might be tempted, if I was on a tight budget.

I paid for 1 soda and got 1 free refill. How I chose to split that soda is 100% up to me. If I made them share the same cup would that be better? Either way it's the same amount of soda I didn't cheat or steal.

It is being dishonest when you say one is just having water and in reality is not. At a sit down restaurant where there are unlimited refills such as Denny's for example, you cannot order one drink and stick it in the middle of a table of 4. The intent of the free refill offer is not to feed a family, just the person ordering it and it is a courtesy that you can have a refill if you feel to.

Question:
Is it even possible to order a kids soda by itself?

Is it also stealing to order a large soda (where avaiable) and split it? The places that offer Larger sodas don't offere refills.

People split meals all the time is this cheating?

Is ordering a kids meal (meant for ages 9 & under) for an adult cheating?

I think splitting anything NON-refillable is fine. Anything refillable is usually intended to be for one person.

I didn't say I was having water, I asked for an extra cup. It is not a sit down restaurant and it was not for 4 people. It was 2 kids and next time I won't post anything to help anyone out.
