Take-out or takeout, carry-out, take-away, or parcel is food purchased at a restaurant that the purchaser intends to eat elsewhere. The restaurant involved may or may not provide table service. Take-out is usually cheaper than table service for the same dishes. In the United States and Canada, food ordered this way (especially at fast food outlets) is ordered to go, and in the UK it is ordered to take away or sometimes to eat out, as opposed to eating in or dining in.
