30 East Bay Restaurants with Family Sized Take Out Meals

Please note these may be special restaurant offerings during mandated shelter in place and may not be available once those 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.
