Not all furniture stores offer the promise of Swedish meatballs and ice cream, but IKEA isn't like other furniture stores. The Swedish company is known just as much for its cheap eats as it is for bookshelves separated into 100 individual pieces, with meatballs being the main culinary draw. At IKEA Burbank, the menu revolves around roughly 15 dishes under $10; you can try them all for less than a LISABO side table or a HINDÖ shelving unit. So we did—try them all, that is—and found the best bites for your buck. Hint: stay away from the veggie meatballs.
This in-depth ranking comes from the original IKEA Burbank location, but be sure to check out IKEA's brand new—and much bigger—outpost at 600 IKEA Way.
