  • I live in Norfolk. My husband and I eat out twice per month. We usually eat at a sit down steak, mexican, or chineese place and generally spend $10-$15 per person. So I would say we generally spend about $50 per month or so.

  • We're saving for the babies, so lately we haven't been out to eat at all. But just before we got married we went out I'd say around four times a month. Generally with a few friends or some other family members. We normally spend about $15 on a meal for each person I'd say.

  • We go out to eat maybe once a week on average. There are times we go twice a week and there are times we only go out once a month. Depending on where we go, I'd say the average amount we spend is $30-$40 for 2 adults and one child.

  • We go out usually once a month - sometimes twice. We never spend more than $35 for all 4 of us...

    We live in PA, about an hour south of Pittsburgh.

  • We go to a sit down meal, like Logans or Outback 1 time a month normally, and spend about $50 for 4 people. We hit a drive through at least 2 or 3 times a week and spend $15 to $20 each time. Trying to cut back but it's hard with our crazy schedules and ball practice, etc
