Poll: Do you box up leftovers at restaurants?

When you're done eating at a restaurant, will you request a box to take the leftovers home?

I'll even box up a salad if I got it as my main course. Like Cobb salads. I love those things.

Pizza is the only leftover food I will touch. I don't even put it in the fridge. Only thing I will fuck with if it is more than a few hours old.

Usually - though depends on where I'm going after dinner. If it's straight home then it's more likely. If dinner is just the beginning of the night I'm not going to carry a bag of food around all evening.

Mostly this. I'm not sure where you guys are eating that you can't finish your meal. It also depends on weather. I'm not going to take home pizza in July but in January it'd be okay.

LOL. You seasonal eaters. Tell us about when you avoid spicy foods.

I take leftovers home all the time but I usually end up throwing them out a week later. The leftovers are usually from my wife or son though. I usually eat all my stuff but if there's enough for another meal or snack I'll take it home and if its worth me taking home I tend to eat it.

I was out on a lunch date with this broad the other day, and I said "yo - I know this looks tacky, but I aint got fuck all in the fridge for dinner, so I'm boxing this for later."

After the obligatory "oh yeah no don't worry about it"; she had a rather humorous look on her face.

If that was directed at my comment - I feel like it's more the date thing where it's rather odd.

If your out with friends and family, absolutely.

No. It is not. You'd be surprised. As a business, and service to the community, portions should create as little waste as possible. This is important. If you expect leftovers, hit take-out, or kill the local Cracker Barrel. Places that tend to yield big take home wins, such as Olive Garden....suck at business. Their business fucking sucks. Darden, the parent company....what more could be said. If you are really giving the consumer a dining experience, they have a meal. The end. Too many chains play into the magic show where they pretend they are not fast food, or at least quick service.

Simple reasons for not giving the guests too much fucking food:
*Basic health issues. Not going into details here but look at some menu items at many, many places. Do not kill your patrons.
*Food costs. The glorious bacon ceiling. Your product is important. Shit that gets wasted and never eaten becomes part of the next bit...'Wastes'. Where there is expense in disposing of shit you should not be disposing of. Bad business practice.
*Wastes. Packaging material on top of the costs of a usual dining experience. Somebody has to wash your dishes. Materials, time, and everything involved to then take your fucking lunch home. Trash service.
* Undervaluing your product. Product, service, service and product. There IS an added value of a delivery, of sitting down and being served. Served being key. Vending is not serving.
*You have to be good at what you do. Olive Garden sucks. Corvettes making up for small penises.

Shit is just illogical.

I usually box up the main entree; mostly being just the steak/chicken I or the wife didn't finish. Half of the time I forget the box on the table and when I notice it's too late to go back and get it, or when I do bring it home I usually feed what's leftover from the steak to the dogs. If I box everything up that's left over it's usually not much and I won't eat it anyways, so just the meats for the dogs. If that sounds weird, oh well. instead of giving them a treat, the leftover pieces of steak takes its place.

Very rarely. I'm not a huge fan of reheated food. I don't even eat out that often though because I know most places it's not really fresh. Pizza is probably the one exception for me. I can eat pizza that's been sitting on the counter for 2 days.
