Purely from a parental convenience point of view (ignoring price or menu differences), do you find it easier to do a table service or counter service meal with young kids? I'll be solo with a 2.5 and 7 yo and I'm debating my meal plans. The 2.5 yo is definitely in the phase where he might climb/grab/run at any moment, and the 7 yo can't quite be trusted to keep his little brother in line. I'm thinking that sitting down and ordering from a waiter will beat having to stand in line to order, then wait, then carry food back to a table, go get napkins and silverware, etc. Of course TS will be slower, requires planning around an ADR... Does anyone have different thoughts on this?
