30+ East Bay Restaurants with Family Sized Take Out Meals

Please note these may be special restaurant offerings during Covid-19 and may not be available once local restrictions are lifted. I’m in two helpful facebook groups that helped me as my eyes, ears, and taste buds to build this list: Oakland and Berkeley Curbside Food & Restaurants and our own {510} Families Group for East Bay Parents. Thanks to them both!

I love having curbside takeout or delivery once (or twice) a week. I especially appreciate the restaurants and caterers who sell family-size portions. Drop your favorites in the comments, please.

    Vanessa’s Bistro on Solano Ave in Berkeley has an amazing fried chicken family meal! Must be ordered in advance, but sooooooo worth it!

  2. Mago on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland also offers wonderful family meals–one for vegetarians and one for omnivores–each day, Monday through Saturday.

  3. Comestible Catering in Oakland https://www.comestibleoak.com/ is also offering a weekly family meal for $50 for pickup or delivery and it has been excellent! The menu changes weekly and they need 24 hours notice. They also sell soups and stews by the quart.
