The official Foursquare page for IKEA USA - The Life Improvement Store.
Swedish meatballs ftw!
don't come on weekends
Bring a map, flashlight, blanket, hiking boots, a compass, and food to distract the Minotaur.
Meatballs and mash potatoes are good. Store gets me dizzy.
Try the Moroccan Prawns and spot it on Foodspotting!
$1.99 breakfast for the win! A poor man's (ahem, student's) feast!
50 cent hot dogs. what.
After eating the delicious swedish meatballs here, you'll notice that IKEA also sells furniture at reasonable prices... what are the odds!?!? Enjoy!!!
fill your belly of meatballs before shopping around
Where startup employees buy furniture.
Sing Jonathan Coulton's "IKEA" while shopping.
Vegetarians, just eat the fries.
be prepared to wait for at least 30 minutes if you are returning an item.
Much to my amazement. Besides cheap hot dogs & tasty meatballs, this place also has furniture. Cool!
shop here an hour before closing (8'ish). it's super mellow, no crowds, no lines.
FAMILY PARKING UP TOP
the shopping carts are hard to control haha
3G does not work well here :(
I love the creativity here :D (The food ain't too bad either)
Instead of getting Swedish meatballs from the cafe, buy a jar of lindenberry sauce and make some *homemeade* meatballs and mash to go with it. Yum!
Revamped Swedish grocery area now... Ooh la la!
Arrive at 10:00 am on weekends for the optimal ratio of furniture to humans.
Come before noon and avoid lines!
There is hybrid vehicle parking right outside the entrance! Non-hybrid vehicles should not take these spots!
Friends, if you need me to put together your furniture, I'll do it in the payment of Swedish meat balls! :)
Check out the fjlurgen and the gortbyt. The lente-wurrl is really comfortable and the galm are really delicious.
$1 yogurt!!! Yum!!
Always leave with a six pack of cinnamon rolls.
going to go shopping with friends... but 1/2 way through going to get some meat balls... MMMMMM
Since you're at IKEA, skip the meatballs and head over to Mi Pueblo Market across the street and hit up their amazing deli for a plate of carnitas or bowl of caldo de pollo.
Get the Wednesday rib special
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.
Avoid on holidays like Labor Day
Avoid this place like the plague on Saturday nights. It's a combination of the Star Wars cantina, DMV, and Mumbai.
It's always a shitshow here.
#SF Sit in traffic on the 101, or eat meatballs? The obvious choice
It's President's Day and they're remodeling inside. It's a madhouse in there and parking is slim.
Epically bad parking...
We love Ikea! Putting the furniture together can be a drag, though. Did you know we have expert TaskRabbits that can assemble your Ikea furniture for you (affordably)? Live smarter with TaskRabbit.
Can't really beat the 99c breakfast!
$1 nonfat vanilla yogurt cone, $2 two hotdogs, drink, chips, $1 cinnamon bun, $4 for 6 cinnamon buns, $1.75 pizza slice... Free refills
There is a European-accented woman in Returns who has a sour attitude and a stick up her ... Point is, avoid her if you want to get anything returned or even a pleasant attitude
2 hot dogs for a buck. Good snack for cheap. Not crap, either.
50c for unlimited coffee :)
great drift carts here
Stay away! Evil place!
Products are still made of 100% crap. lol
EPA location closes later than Emeryville. 9 PM instead of 8 PM! Also no extortionate toll to cross the bridge. Win!
