Since I'm the shopper, prep person, cook, and often cleaner upper, dinner OUT is a wonderful treat. I love to go try something new and then try to make it myself at home another time. So I'd say restaurant is a treat for me..Besides when I cook it, I usually get about 3 bites before I'm on the run for someone who wants more of this or that kadesma

With the exception of a rare pizza delivery or Chinese take out (obsolete now that our only small-town Chinese restaurant closed), if I eat at home, I'm cooking. The fact is, if someone else is cooking, I also want them to serve and clean up AND provide some atmosphere. I like to cook, so getting food from somewhere else isn't the issue. Getting out of the house, and having someone do all the other c--p that goes with cooking a meal, having someone wait on me -- well, that's half the point.

it depends... doener kebap is an always-home-thing, chinese is an always-out-thing...
and the pizza? Depends on our mood, but now there is no italian restaurant for the next weeks.

I would prefer to get take-out & bring it home to eat it. Especially if it's something like wings or ribs - messy stuff!!! ;-)

I prefer to eat at home, because at home I can prepare the food to my liking, spend less money, and generally the food tastes better. But I would agree with RDG that for some dishes I just don't have the skill or technology to make at home and it is just easier at times to eat out.

I think we're missing the point of D.S.'s question. If you are going to eat food that was prepared by a restaurant, would you rather eat it at the restaurant or take it home with you & eat it there?

May be I hadn't understood. In this case, absolutely at restaurant.
