Noun[edit]

tableful ‎(plural tablefuls or tablesful)

    • 2007 March 7, Peter Meehan, “The Big Apple May Never Be Known as the Big Sparerib, but It’s Smokin’”, in New York Times[1]:
      It was a perverse amount of meat — enough to slay a tableful of hungry eaters and send everyone home with a to-go pack of smoky ’cue — and even with gas money figured in it was wildly cheaper than anything in the city.
