    Friendly and helpful staff, be sure to try a hotdog as you walk around. They're great for a quick fix if you're hungry.

    Why do parents bring their children to this store? I swear every child in there was screaming. But the meatballs are delicious!

    On Tuesdays, kids eat free. Coupled with the free play room for kids for up to 90 minutes, and it's like a mini parental vacation!

    It's a giant one! Tip: get there a few minutes before 10am. Doing an IKEA run without the crowd makes for an experience

    I love the place, but their employees are often rude and condescending. To put it simply many (not all, but many) of their employees are assholes who think they're the shit for working at an ikea.

    Make sure you get here early in the morning on weekends if you want to shop peacefully. Weekdays are a good time to go visit too.

    If you're not going to browse (only do this at odd hours), look up item locations within the store from home, then crush your visit to the store.

    They seriously need to get some new toilet paper in their restrooms. The current "ASZVIPEN" is basically scratchy wax paper.

    On certain dates you could eat for free, where they will deduct the price of your restaurant purchase from the total if you spend more than $150.
