Raising Canes Styrofoam Container Fried Chicken

A Styrofoam Container Review: Fried Chicken To Go!

Raising Cane’s fried chicken in a styrofoam container is next on our list for review. From a tasty burger from TGI Fridays to fried chicken in a week! Reviewing food and their containers has its perks. They have several different combo options to choose from. We decide to go with their “box” combo. As the image above shows, the container is a classic styrofoam container. It has two compartments within it that hold the food. The box combo from Raising Cane’s comes with 4 pieces of fried chicken tenders, a pile of crinkle cut fries, texas toast, coleslaw and their […]

A To Go Container Review: Do TGI Friday’s Burgers Hold Up?

We’re excited about this TGI Friday’s to go container review. We get to eat one of their signature burgers. Yum! You know the saying at this restaurant – “In Here, It’s Always Friday”. We wonder if we’ll still get that Friday feeling after taking home their food and warming it up. We recently tested out Chili’s packaging and found it didn’t do much to keep the food fresh. Surely, TGI Fridays will do better!   Our choice is the Signature Whiskey-Glazed Burger, medium-rare. We stop by a local TGI Fridays and pick up this delicious meal. As the image above […]

Fully Loaded: A Chili’s Restaurant Plastic Container Review

As we continue to look at to go packaging, next up is Chili’s and this boneless wings restaurant plastic container review. Our focus has moved from local eateries to national chains to see how they treat their takeout food. We tested Papa John’s delivery packaging and it does little to keep the food fresh. Chili’s represents a very popular dinner spot! In fact, a member of 3.8 million U.S. households visited Chili’s for dinner in 2018[1]. Let’s see how their packaging measures up. We stop by a local Chili’s restaurant and pick up the loaded boneless chicken wings. As the […]
Papa Johns Delivery Box

Fresh From The Oven: A Pizza Delivery Box Review

Next stop on our tour of to-go food options and their packaging is Papa John’s and this pepperoni and mushroom pie and pizza delivery box review. Our two previous posts were of a coffee shop breakfast and a freshly made lunch salad. These are companies that are either completely local or mostly local. We wanted to pick a national chain to see if the backing of a larger company gives the product an advantage. Papa John’s certainly qualifies as a large national chain as it is Top 5 in the country in annual sales[1]. Let’s see if any of that […]

Fighting The Sog – A Disposable Salad Container Review

As we continue our review of local restaurant takeout and their disposable food container, next up is a lunch salad from Verde. Our recent local coffee shop review shows a delicious breakfast can turn soggy quickly. Let’s see if this popular salad spot does a bit better. Lunch salad chain restaurants are on the rise.[1] Verde further proves that as they expand outside of their local area to another city. As many of their customers take lunch to go, they have put some thought into their packaging. Specifically, how it can help keep a salad fresh. The plastic bowl design works […]

How’s That Breakfast Holding Up? A Disposable Food Container Review

As 2018 comes to an end, we wanted to take a look at the disposable food container often used by restaurants. Over the next month, we will be reviewing the takeout food and packaging from 4 different styles of eateries. First up for review, a local coffee shop and cafe – Vintage Coffee Cafe. 1/3rd of the U.S. population drinks a gourmet coffee beverage every day.[1] To capitalize on this, many high-end coffee shops offer tasty breakfast food to go along with your coffee. We found one such coffee shop and ordered their cinnamon french toast breakfast to go. The […]

Takeout on Thanksgiving? It’s More Common Than You Think

Thanksgiving gives us all a great opportunity to reconnect with family, but it’s also a hectic time. The sometimes lofty expectations on quality of food can be overwhelming. Many people turn to restaurants to help remove some or all of the cooking stress that can come with the holidays. Not everybody feels the need to toil away in the kitchen for friends and family on Turkey Day. Statistics show that 10% of people dine out for their Thanksgiving meal and 5% enjoy a full takeout meal. Even if they are inclined to cook at home, 57% of a Thanksgiving meal […]
