where they eat six they eat seven ... and eight and so on until there is no more.

It's like the fritos, you can't eat just one.
or a girl too pretty having too much fun.

Hola!

Donde comen seis comen siete......

To me, this means that there is no problem with sharing what we have. You are welcome and we are glad to share what we have with you even if it means we get less. If we have enough food for 6 people, we can stretch it to make seven servings.

This is how I have interpreted it in the past.

What do you think?

I agree with Eliana.
Usual saying when an unexpected visitor comes at dinner's time.
You have a pie for 6 kids. If a new kid comes, you make it for 7.
It's the same with a dinner/servings.
