About The Takeout

First launched in 2016 from the minds behind The Onion and The A.V. Club, The Takeout followed a tradition of expert-level analysis and observation presented by unique and talented voices. Acquired by Static Media in 2024, the brand continues its mission to improve people's lives through food, celebrating gourmet and everyday dishes with equal enthusiasm — and sharing the latest food trends, expert cooking advice, and taste tests in an authoritative and accessible way. Whether you're a passionate home cook, a devoted foodie, or simply someone who enjoys a good meal, The Takeout offers something for everyone.

At The Takeout, we keep food and culture at our core, catering to a diverse readership of varied experiences and backgrounds. That's why you'll find everything from guides to regional fast food chains to articles about why you should plunk down $1,500 on a water dispenser in your house.

We also aim to stay current with the latest food trends and offerings from both your favorite restaurants as well as spots you've never heard of. That's why alongside our food news and reviews, you'll also find stories on our site that dive into history and cultural context behind ingredients and cuisine.
