Once a week? Every few weeks? Once a month? Where is your favorite place to go out as a family?

Maybe twice a month to a restaurant and probably twice a week to "fast food" places. For restaurants, we mainly go to a mexican place down the road. It's quick, and cheap. lol. We also do cheddars sometimes.

To a nice (not fast food) place, probably twice a month. Fast food take out at least weekly, plus we go out for breakfast once a week too.

Very often lol We don't really stick to one place except for breakfast; we are Burger World regulars

We used to go often, probably 4-6 visits monthly with a combination of restaurants & fast food places.
Since I've turned over a new leaf, it's probably 0-1 times a month. I'm not strong enough to resist all of the savory dishes I can't have right now. For example, there is no freaking way I can go to Olive Garden & not eat chicken Alfredo & 2-3 breadsticks. No. Way. So, I choose to just stay away. Better on our budget & my stomach & thighs.

Not often these days. I'm not a huge fan of eating out as a family. It's just more work for me than it is nice. If we do go I like Montanas or the Springs. We do get fast food once in a while.

When DH is home we go out a lot more often. Usually at least once a week to a nicer sit down place with the occasional fast food thrown in.
With him gone I get fast food here and there but that's it.
We usually go out as a family to The Rock Pizza, The Ram or BJs.

Probably once or twice per month. We usually go to Boston Pizza as a family and if it's just me and DH we go to the pub.

Some weeks we get fast food once or pick something up from the Market at United Marketstreet (like last night) during the work week. We usually save that for when we have busy nights or get home late or something. We usually go out to dinner to a sit-down restaurant on Friday nights. We used to go get breakfast burritos on Saturday mornings, but now we stocked up on breakfast food for the weekends too (instead of just the work week).

We don't really have a favorite place to go out as a family. When we go out, Brynlee goes with us. So we go to every place as a family.

We go out to breakfast every weekend. It's a little diner down the street. We also end up going out to lunch or something too, if we are out running errands. But we never go to any place that is expensive. Just middle of the road places, like a diner or sandwich shop.

I am addicted to eating out, I'm not going to deny it. My husband tells me all the time that we need to watch our budget because it adds up so fast. And he is right, so I have gotten much better about it.

There's some weeks that we eat out more than our "norm". If we're out and about on a Saturday, we do the same as what you said. We grab something while we're out, but it's never expensive. (It does add up though.) My husband used to eat out 5 days a week at work. If they are out of town, they reimburse the guys $5. But what he doesn't understand is that even if he is out of town all 5 days, eats out all 5 days, gets $5 back, but spends about $10 a day with drink and tip, he still spends $25 a week eating out. But the thing is, they don't get they money back until Friday. If he doesn't keep his receipt (often) then he doesn't get $5 back. AND that's only when they are out of town.

He doesn't have a fridge or microwave so he has a big lunch box with ice packs in it. He eats a lot of tuna, but has a lot of different recipes for it, LOL

We go out about 1-2 times a week. Weekends we go out for breakfast, and I often go for a lunch with a friend once a week.

We go out to a resturant as a family maybe once a month? if that. Its just way to much work to take all three kids out sometimes.

We rarely eat fast food, maybe once every 2 weeks or something like that and its usually mcDonalds for the kiddies.

We have been really good about not going out to eat often. Our little guy is kind of a monster at restaurants anyways! He is find while he is eating, but as soon as he is done he wants to be out of the high chair or booster seat and moving around.

Last night hubby and I had a date night and went out to dinner and a movie, so we picked up fast food for the kids. That was the first time they have eaten fast food in months though.

Adding up work, school, date nights and family meals out I'd say 2-3 times a week. I like making sure my kids know how to behave at meals in public
