We went to the restaurant Noodles & Company in Farmingdale. We tried four different kids’ meals. The meals were: spaghetti and meatballs, Wisconsin mac and cheese, buttered noodles, and grilled chicken breast with dipping marinara.

Three of us liked the mac and cheese the best, and one of us liked the grilled chicken breast with dipping marinara the best. The drinks we could choose from were milk, juice, or soft drinks. We could also pick two sides. The choices were broccoli, carrots, GoGo squeeZ applesauce, or Rice Krispies treats.

The place has pretty decent service and the Farmingdale restaurant is huge. The food was good.

Noodles & Company also has macaroni necklaces. While you wait for your food they give you a box with colored macaroni, a piece of string and tape so you can make a necklace. They give you big, small, and round pieces of macaroni.

The kids’ place mat is based on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). They want you to use your noodle at Noodles & Company. The mat also has questions that you could answer. One of the questions is “What do you like to do in your free time?“

We all recommend it to everyone because there are fun kids’ meals with your own side and drink. There is also an adult menu with lots of other great food. Besides the Farmingdale location, there are four other Long Island restaurants.

We rate it 3.5 smiles.
