Who lives in south Durham? (Durham Take-out)

Posted by YAR 11 Dec 2008 4 Comments

If I did, I would use this service all too much (mostly for Shiki Sushi, probably): www.durhamtakeout.com.  I mean, I like to go out to eat but there is a significant portion of me that sometimes just isn’t up for getting dressed.  Particularly during finals.

These are the same folks as Tarheel Take-out and Raleigh Take-out, which I’ve never had reason to use.  Apparently they’ll be starting up tomorrow (December 12).  Maybe if they get enough interest they’ll spread to other parts of Durham.

    [...] Carpe Durham, Durham Take-out, a new branch of Chapel’s Tar Heel Take-out, is supposed to start up today. [...]

    I saw ads for this service when I first moved to Durham a couple of years ago, but it seemed to be defunct at the time. Hope they can make a go of it this time – I’ll gladly pay somebody else to navigate the hell of south Durham for me.

    We live near Chapel Hill St, which is technically in the delivery area (which they describe as bounded by 147, I-40, and 15-501) but only by a couple of blocks. I wonder if they’ll really come all the way up here…

    Don’t use this place! They are terrible. I have given them so many chances b/c I don’t like to cook! However, they are just terrible (see yelp.com). The customer service is awful and I was actually hassled by a driver over a non-existent coupon! It was really scary! He was preventing me from closing my door! If they don’t have drivers in Durham (which is often) they will not notify you until you start looking for your food!

    I have used Durham Takeout on numerous occasions. I have a newborn & a toddler at home so it’s too much of a pain to load them up in the car just to pick up takeout. It is nice to have someone bring it to me. I have enjoyed their service and their drivers have always been really pleasant to me. On one delivery (and one delivery only) they were about 10 minutes later than expected, but my house is a little hard to find so I chalked it up to that.

    I have been pleased with their service and my food has always arrived hot.
