I like to dine in when I can. But when it's not possible, I prefer to do take-out. I like to get my own food. Delivery isn't popular in my household.

I really enjoy home delivery. I can stay comfortable at home wearing whatever I want and with my hair messed up and eat a meal just as if I were in a restaurant! That is a treat for me to be honest. Not having to travel is another benefit. The only problem is that sometimes they take long to arrive and there is a minimum order quantity.

I also like home delivery but it depends on the situation. Sometimes I feel like going out because staying at home for a few days can be boring and eating out is one good reason to refresh my mind in seeing another environment. However dining out is more expensive than having the food delivered because we usually go to classy restaurants which is definitely more expensive than the fast food.

Home delivery is the one for me, i mostly prefer to just order my food than going to a fast food restaurant and eating there. Just that i have to place my order on time so that it doesn't come in late. I don't usually mind the waiting time too, but when am not ordering food i just make some thing for my self to eat. If am with my family, we do strictly home cooked foods.

I suppose it depends on the situation. If I'm wanting a nice meal or going out with someone, I'll dine in of course to get out of the house for a meal. I don't mind takeout if I'm in a hurry or don't want to be hassled with eating in public or have something I want to complete over lunch at work. The only food I ever have delivered to my house is pizza, and that's it.

My preferred choice in order is: dine in, delivery and then take away.

I absolutely love to dine in at the comfort of my home. It is the best because you can just relax. I also enjoy cooking so make a meal is not a problem at all. We get the delivery, mainly Chinese food, probably only two times per month. It just isn't worth it because it costs much more compared to if you make it.

And the take away requires you to drive there, order food, wait for it and drive home to eat it which is too much time and effort. That is why my top choice is dining in!

I like to pick up my food and have it as take away. I like the eat it in the comfort of my own home or take it and go somewhere else to eat like the park or beach. I very seldom eat inside at a restaurant unless it is a high end restaurant but I only go to those on special occasions.

Fast food is best enjoyed outside if it is warm and in the comfort of my own home when the weather is less then ideal.
Posted by Sue on 07-10-2017
I'd rather do take-away becacuse I wouldn't want to show my eating skills in public you know. Haha! Well, I just prefer eating at my own comfort unless I'm on a date with someone.

My family rarely eats out and when we do it's hardly ever fast food. I like to cook at home instead of eating out. It"s cheaper and healthier to cook at home. The only downside about eating at home is having to do the dishes!

All the options available for voting are extremely valid and totally useful, of course. However, I think what should be taken into consideration before choosing the "best" among them, is the convenience of the specific moment. :)

It depend on the situations, if the restaurant is full I will prefer to take out. But I like to dine in with my friends and families. Delivery is not common at home, we mostly go out and dine in the restaurant.
Posted by rose thornes on 07-12-2017
I like to dine in when I go to a restaurant and we usually choose one that is not fast food style. If we are traveling or want something quick and easy then we will choose to go to a fast food restaurant. Pizza is about the only thing that we get delivered to our house although sometimes they run specials that are cheaper than having it delivered. I do not know of any fast food restaurants in my neighborhood that delivers. I would love to have Chinese delivered.

I prefer to dine in, but this is not always possible for us so we go out to McDonald's or KFC and dine out. When this happens our kids are the happiest on earth because we don't give them junk food too often!

We very seldom have any kind of delivered food. I really enjoy just sitting in a restaurant and enjoying my special meal, and not having it at home. Sometimes, we do pick up food to have at home, like chicken from Bojangles, and then we can eat it at our leisure once we get back home. We also enjoy having pizza at home, and seldom even go to someplace to eat out and buy pizza; so it really depends on the type of food that we are eating it, where we usually eat it at. I love salad bars, and given the choice would always go to a restaurant that has a salad bar, which pretty much eliminates all of the fast food places except Pizza Hut, which always has a nice salad bar, and also CiCi's Pizza, which is one of my favorite places to eat out. It is a fast food chain; but they have a buffet that includes salad, pasta, pizza, drink and dessert, and with a senior discount... you just can't beat that in my book ! My husband doesn't like to eat there for some reason, so I usually go there with my friend who also enjoys eating at CiCi's.

Dine in home is the best choice because, first dinning in home is safe, and everything is well..which makes us feel good.
Posted by Moaz on 07-21-2017
For me, Dine-in is the best choice when considering to buy food from outside since the price you will be paying is not just for the food, but also for you to be accommodated in the restaurant. This is the case for fancy restaurants wherein the experience of dining in such restaurants is not to be missed. Unless you have plans of watching a movie at home or you are all tired from work, you could just order food for delivery. I just see that the value of what you pay for food is much more worth if you dine in the restaurant too. You can't ask for extra gravy at home after all.

I prefer to dine-in. Fast food delivery is convenient but it is really unhealthy. I only have fast-food delivery if my family agrees to it. Most of the time, we will drive out to eat at restaurants. There are more choices outside compared to fast food around my location.
Posted by fishmonk on 08-07-2017
Depends on the situation really. I do believe eating out once or twice a week makes up for a healthy life. Still, I wouldn't advise people eating out every day due to the costs that can add up and the quality of the food which is usually lower. Still, nothing beats a home cooked meal on a cold Sunday morning. That hits the spot just well.

I prefer to dine in, nothing is better than a homemade meal. Take away and fast food are good for certain occasions when you want a change, I mean when you want to break the routine. But eating fast food and take away food too frequently can become tiresome, not to mention very unhealthy.
Posted by Dkaraly on 08-28-2017
I love home delivery! It saves you a lot of time and you can choose from many options. Unfortunately, it costs more than eating homemade food and there aren't many food delivery services in my town so I don't order my food this way often. It happens quite rarely to be honest but it's great to have this option if you know you won't have the time to cook and you really crave a hot meal.
Posted by felabruno on 08-29-2017
I like to dine in my home, I love home cooked food. First of all, when you cook and eat in home, you will save money, secondly, when you are eating your self cooked food, it is very healthy. Cooking and eathing together with the family is very therapeutic. Cooking is also a great way to de-stress yourself. Cooking is a hard work, however, your labor is well paid.
Posted by vinaya on 09-01-2017
Supposedly I have time to go to a fast food restaurant, I prefer it dine in as it will be served hot and fresh rather than taking it at home or ordering it to be delivered. I haven't tried ordering from home though as I think it will charged a ridiculous amount of delivery fee now that I'm quite far from the restaurants that offer home delivery. If I do have money for ordering though I might try to order a large pizza as I've never tried one before lol.

Definitely dine in whenever I went out side and have lots of time spare, and of course whenever I have date with my love one. As food served will be hot and fresh from the kitchen and mostly the most freshest ingredients will be used supposedly you're on a restaurant or similar cafe's outside.
Posted by narutos3nn1n on 09-11-2017
I always prefer to eat dine-in than home delivery because the food is always warm and fresh and you always have the options to order again whenever the food is finished and you're still not done yet. It's also a good thing that after a meal, you do walking for proper digestion because if you do home delivery, once you're done eating, you just sit for the entire time or lay on your sofa or bed. It's also a great bonding with your family to sometimes go outside and dine-in and do some shopping.
Posted by ColdFlameChris on 11-14-2017
Home is always my top choice because I can eat as much as I want and also choose the type of dishes that I want to prepare. Nothing beats a good dinner at home with my family and a nice dessert afterwards.
Posted by Marvadaum on 11-15-2017
Home delivery because it's convenient. It feels good to eat at home with your loveones and there is no need to go outside the house. I often use home delivery service and it helped me a lot especially if there is no available to cook in our house.
Posted by Scarlet on 12-19-2017
I prefer more of home delivery especially when I'm very busy,it comes in handy though at more cost but I don't mind since it will help keep me away from worry about preparing either lunch or dinner because it always about preparing this two.Home delivery makes it easy to add or subtract from the food what one doesn't want and it always okay by me.
Posted by lovely on 12-20-2017
Any of these options are fine and I'm certainly just appreciative that I am able to buy and taste food that good when I do but I much prefer eating at home when I can because I can be more comfortable there. When I'm at a restaurant I feel like I have to be a lot more proper and when I'm at home I can just eat while wearing my comfortable clothes and while watching TV if I wanted to. It's why I would choose takeout or delivery even if I get food fresher by eating at the restaurant.

We are always in a hurry so most of our purchases in fast food outlets are for take out. Especially in the morning when I am in a hurry to reach the office early, I would go to the drive thru and buy my breakfast that I will eat in the office. When I am with my husband and we have the time to spare, it’s nice to dine in because we enjoy the air conditioning and we can add more in case we are still hungry. I have noticed that fast food is now really fast because your order is instantly delivered to your table.
Posted by Corzhens on 01-19-2018
In fact fast foods are very tasty and practical, but let's face it, they are not healthy. In addition, they are usually expensive, so it becomes impracticable to buy fast food frequently. I prefer to make food at home simply because it is healthier and cheaper.
Posted by hermessantos on 01-22-2018
I prefer dine in because it means hotter and fresher food, it's more convenient because I can ask for extra condiments and in case that they mixed up the order, it can be easily corrected and if I feel that I'm still hungry, I can order additional food faster.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 03-08-2018
There are times that we don't cook meals at home because were all busy and we dont have the time to do it so whenever this happens I'm off to do take-aways from our favorite fast-food joint or restaurant. Doing take-aways saves us time and money in preparing our meals and also whenever I'm buying, I always get some extra sauces and stuff that can be used at home.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 03-12-2018
I think the dine is good if you have family and friends. But in case of the fast food you should take out. And that works as well. I guess for each one of us things can be lot different. And we just have to see on the basis of the time spent with the loved ones. I guess that's what is more important in that case. We learn from others and have fun along the way.

I love to order food to my home--we have a local place, called Wings and Things, near where I live, and they deliver wings (of course) of all flavors, cheeseburgers, chees sticks, french fries, mexican dishes, cole slaw, tacos, chcken fingers, etc.--you name it! However, if asked for my preference, I would always rather create and cook my own meals at home instead of ordering delivery. I know exactly how I want my food to taste, and, also, if I prepare it myself, I can almost always make it more healthy for me than something that is being cooked by someone else and delivered. Of course, I take advantage of the delivery service at times, but i prefer cooking and preparing meals in my own kitchen for myself and my loved ones.
Posted by JoeMilford on 03-29-2018
Because of my spouse's diet restriction,I prefer to dine in, with one exception. Spicy garlic chicken from the Chinese restaurant nearby where we live. They have take out, delivery, or dine in! I'm good either way.
Posted by cmoneyspinner on 06-30-2018
Dine in of course. Eating the food you ordered on the restaurant itself makes the food look tastier as you feel the vibe of the restaurant. McDonald's for example. It has a unique vibe that I could only feel on their restaurant. Eating it at home is fine too if I'm too tired or lazy to go out or if I'm busy doing something.
Posted by hstinscdln on 11-28-2018
Dine in for me. I can't stand how long it usually takes for a delivery to get to my house! Basically because my address is hard to find lol! Buying take away means food just gets cold and it sort of tastes different. Food is always better when it's just cooked or fresh out of the oven.
