The tricky thing about having multiple kids is, if I buy one of anything, I usually have to buy three. (And soon I'll have to buy four!) Something that seems reasonably priced is suddenly expensive when multiplied by three.
And this is why I like the IKEA Restaurant. Kids meals are only $2.49 each, every day!
Adult meals are also very reasonably priced, with many options under $4. The only thing that is really "expensive" are the $2 drinks.
Food is served cafeteria style... and I recently found a little cart that makes carrying multiple trays much easier. Ask for one if you have lots of kids meals to carry.
Once you eat, you take your tray back to the clean up area (like you are back in college).
