There’s so many great places to eat in Birmingham, but sometimes finding time to grab a quick lunch, or to take your family out to dinner can be a challenge. Why not try a locally owned delivery service? The TakeOut Bham has been making ordering from independent restaurants in Birmingham easy – since 2010. I tried them out and this is what happened.
Using The TakeOut Bham
There was no way I’d be able to get out of the office for lunch between my busy job at Bham Now and needing to pick up our daughter from daycare, so I visited thetakeoutbham.com on my phone. There I found a huge list of 75 local neighborhood restaurants to order takeout (sorted by delivery times). Sometimes, time is of the essence and this was one of them.
I decide to go for smoked turkey and pineapple ham, hot cheddar pasta, and a broccoli salad from Urban Cookhouse in downtown Birmingham. Yum!
I love eating there when possible; the food is farm to table and the plates are accompanied by tiny bites of heaven – their delicious orange rolls. I also added a couple of brown sugar brownies for good measure!

One of the things I like most about The TakeOut Bham is that it’s genuinely simple to use. I start my order and select the first available delivery slot.
I complete my basket, use code LOCALISBETTER to Save $3 off delivery, submit payment details and my order is on the way!
Urban Cookhouse received my order and are busy preparing it for collection. Meanwhile I’m busy reviewing a Bham Now guide for the weekend.
Tony, a local delivery driver for The TakeOut Bham is on the way to collect my order.
The chefs do their business and the order is checked and collected by Tony who carefully places it in an insulated food carrier.
Tony battles through downtown traffic and calls me to let me know that he’s in my building. I run down to collect my lunch!
Success! I’m eating my lunch in less than 45 minutes, thanks to The TakeOut Bham

“I’ve lived here for 20 years and love it! I went to college at Birmingham Southern and wanted Birmingham to be home for my business. It’s exciting to see the positive changes the city has gone through and its continued growth. I’d like to think we’ve played a small part in that.
