I rarely order by phone. if i do i mostly order pizza either from pizza hut or shakey's. i love pizza. but sometimes i crave for other foods like burgers and chicken. but lately i like to order chicken from Kenny Roger's Roasters but i find it quite expensive so i hold back from ordering. i just plan to buy it in the store itself and eat it there or just have it packed for take away. I know that when you order by phone for home delivery that the price of each product is little bit more expensive and so when you order that price difference is quite big. so it is better you pick it up on the store itself. but when i just buy only a bit above the minimum order then it is just fine as the price difference is not totally big.

I love to eat,as I am sure a lot of people out there like to do,and sometimes I like to eat more then I probably should,even though I think I work it off when I am pushing carts at work,and I love pizza,and wish I could eat it everyday for every single meal because I never get tired of it,and the only pizza place around here who will deliver is Dominoes and we will sometimes get delivery with them especially if we do not feel like going out to get pizza,even though I prefer Pizza Hut,and Little Caesars when it comes to eating pizza because theirs is better,and my parents will usually get Chinese delivered when me and my wife have pizza,even though sometimes my wife will get Chinese,but I will not eat Chinese.

That is so true pizza is good and all but if you eat too much it makes you fat and no one wants to be fat.

I don't know about America but in Trinidad it can take a whole hour or more to get delivery and the prices they charge for fastfood here are so high its better you cook it at home yourself. You can get about three ( 3 ) whole fryers from a wholesaler for what you pay for a 5 piece KFC. As for the pizza, that's over a hundred dollars for the smallest one with three ingredients. In Trinidad its just better you do some cooking.

oh. things are more expensive there. i think here in my country it is not that really expensive actually compared to your place but still i can still save a lot if i don't order by phone. but still if i really get lazy and have no way to get out of home cause i need to do something at home then i have no choice but to order by phone. $300 for a small pizza. are you sure. is that US $ you are talking about. that is way to expensive. why would any one buy just a pizza for that prize. i would rather buy other things else with my money that just a pizza.

I've ordered pizza and chinese food over the phone before. I don't do it often though. We have been trying to eat all our meals at home here lately though because we are tying to save money. It saves a lot when you eat at home and don't spend so much money eating out. It's easier to eat out because someone else makes it for you and you don't have to clean up but it cost more than eating at home.

yeah it is not that hard to prepare at home and lot cheaper too so i prefer to cook at home now too.

i think many people like pizzas too as we can really choose from different kinds of pizza from meat to vegetables as toppings.

WE don't order out so much at all anymore because of the cost. For us its a treat these days. It really is more when you order it to be delivered. For one thing, you can't use any of the coupon specials and you have to tip. So now we usually just go pick it up for the most part.
@hotsummer (10308)

yeah that is what i hate about home delivery the special discount coupon can't be used. it can only be used if you buy at the store yourself.

I order mostly pizzas on the weekends when I have my nieces and nephews over. That way I can give them something that they like to eat and I don't have to worry about what to feed them for that evening. And everyone is happy. I don't order home delivery as much as I used to only when my family's kids come over on a Friday night for movie night.

yeah it saves us time and energy in preparing food specially if we don't know how to cook delicious food. but i don't get worried cause i have a cook at home. before when we don't have any one to cook for us we often buy outside.

I used to order Chinese food or pizza/subs from delivery places much more often than I do now. With the cost of everything increasing, I am trying to cut down on all expenses. I would rather prepare food at home or pick something up to bring home when I'm out doing something else than order delivery food these days. Plus, I've been eating healthier and still trying to lose a few more pounds, so I rarely order delivery food these days. Maybe once a month or once in two months I'll order a pizza or something, but that's about it.

that is true. i do a lot of home cooking now unlike before i mostly order a lot. but i learn to appreciate home cooking more as i get more satisfied and feel full more and i can save a lot of money and can ensure i am eating nutritious food with less or no harmful fat at all. unlike these fast food that is stuff with too much unhealthy fats and calories and so forth. and so there are so many disadvantages in ordering these fast food besides putting a hole in our pockets.

We can't get home delivery from fast food or pizza here out in the boonies. The only home delivery we get is from places like Schwans. That is something that is available in the rural area. I just think there are some places that will not go very far in their delivery efforts.
@hotsummer (10308)

yeah even here in rural places here there are only few things that can be delivered there. i am in a city or urban so i can order almost anything but i still rarely do cause i don't have that much money though.

Hi hotsummer, well I never eat fast food as I don't actually like it and no one could describe a Greek pizza as fast food anyway. One of the local tavernas did start offering a delivery service but I never used it as it would be so wdifficult for anyone to find the house in the dark as may not see the olive trees clearly enough to count them for the right turning. I should explain we don't have addresses. Also if they could find it it would arrive in broken shards after being bumped through all the potholes in the dirt track.

oh it is nice to know that houses over there have olive trees in front. anyways, it will be pretty difficult to have any thing delivered at your home if you don't have any home address. it will be such a difficult task to count the olive off just to know if you are already in front of the right house.

Not that much. We don't usually eat fastfood since we have time to cook the meals and we feel that they're better in terms of taste and nutrition. However, when we do feel the craving for pizza, we usually go there to eat as part of the 'relaxation'. If it's pizza, we usually eat at Pizza Hut or Yellow Cab.

nutrition wise it is better to cook food at home as we know what are the things that we put in our food. but if we want to satisfy our craving it is just okay for sometimes to do that, it is good to order sometimes. but i rarely do now too cause i am health conscious now.

We order home delivery when we are craving for pizza's or spaghetti's of a certain fast food etc. but we don't do it all the time, just when no one will be able to go out to buy the food from the stall personally or if we're gonna go buy them by bulk. :) *drools for pizza right now* xD

We used to order delivery food in the area several times a week. Then, the money ran out and the debt built up and we changed our tune significantly. Now, we make our own pizza's and bread sticks, Chinese food, and anything else we can think of. We maybe order out once every 2 or 3 months now. It is just too expansive, it does not really taste as good as homemade and it is not nearly as good for us! As a side note, since we stopped ordering out my husband has lost nearly 20 lbs and I have lost about 15 lbs. I am sure there are other factors besides eating out but I know that played a major role in it!

I don't. I haven't made a food order by phone in years! But that is because I live out in the country and no place will deliver out where I live. So if I want a pizza or other fast food I have to drive there myself to get it. Happy mylotting!
@manong05 (5030)

The only food I ask to be delivered is pizza and I don't do it often though. It is expensive and have a minimum amount of order. I only do it when there is an unexpected event in the house and I have to serve guests or have fun with the family. Other than than, I will just take my family to the mall and enjoy our time together. cheers!
