Best takeout in Portland?

cathpah | Nov 10, 2008 04:04 PM

My wife and I recently moved to the Portland area, and we've hit quite a few of the board favorites (fore st, street & co, walter's, backbay grill, and I'm lucky enough to say my wife is actually a server at 555) so we've been very impressed with the food we've found in Portland thus far. That said, there are certainly occassions when upscale sit-down restaurants just don't fit the bill for a specific meal ($$$, time, etc).

As I do a lot of my work from home (in Buxton), my wife often offers to bring me some food from portland, but I feel like I don't really know the best spots for takeout. While I enjoy upscale cuisine, I'm also a big fan of so-called "pedestrian" food. I've relied heavily on the wonderful wings that Bingas Wingas has, but there's gotta be other options outside of buffalo wings.

What are some of your fallbacks when you're looking for something quick (cheap doesn't hurt either) ideally available to-go? Being open late is a plus!

So I'll start it off with my recommendation: Bingas Wingas tenders in their diesel sauce (damn hot, but still has great flavor)

Thanks!
