When I wrote about eating conveniences for parents over on Chapelboro.com Katie and I started chatting about Tarheel Takeout (and services like it across the Triangle). Well, alas, they won't come to where I am but Katie has tried them out. Here's her take.:
The service has always been fast. They ask you to allow an hour for delivery, but ours has almost always been delivered much faster. Of course, it also depends on weather, traffic, and the restaurant you choose.
The fee is $4.99. You can also include additional restaurants in the same order for a small fee per restaurant. It really is quick and easy. You can go to their website (see below), browse the restaurants and menus, and order directly from the site. Tarheel Takeout takes care of the rest! Feeling left out in Durham and Raleigh? Don’t. They also have Raleigh Takeout and Durham Takeout.
The only downside is for the folks who live in Chatham County. As of the date of this post, they do not deliver to Chatham, though it’s a wish I will hold on to. I’ve got plenty of friends in Chatham County who would love to have use this great service, too!
Overall, it’s a great deal whether you are looking for a night off from cooking, a meal for guests, or having a dinner delivered to those friends who just had a baby! We are certainly repeat customers.
