20+ East Bay Restaurants with Family Sized Take Out Meals

I love having takeout or delivery once (or twice) during a busy week — and they are all busy. I like to order a pint of cooked chicken or beef when I grab a lunchtime burrito to make an easy dinner. And, I especially appreciate the restaurants and caterers who sell family-size portions for a weeknight supper solution. What else should I try? Drop your favorites in the comments, please!

Menus may change frequently, so check with the restaurant for current options.

    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.
