Memphis is turning into quite the foodie town, and finding excellent take out here goes way beyond pizza or burgers - although you will still find those on this list of our 10 favorite take out spots in the city. All of the options on our list are locally owned, so they have their own made-in-Memphis taste - and you can have the added satisfaction of supporting local businesses.
Note that each of the eateries on this list have different take-out options - and by that, we mean in terms of how you can order. Some take no phone calls, others offer online ordering. Because Memphis is an easy town to navigate and in which to park, grabbing a meal to go is usually pretty easy - exceptions have been noted.
From hand-tossed pizza to juicy burgers and the city's best Asian food, finding take out to suit your taste is easy and relatively inexpensive; take options range from a few of Midtown's best eateries, including pizza from Trolley Stop and deli-style sandwiches at Fino's, and our favorite East Memphis go-to's - Swanky's for tacos and Mosa for Asian.
And for a really quick take-out experience, check out the the local food truck alliance, which offers food truck rodeos and special lunchtime gatherings throughout the city.
