This page is about the phrasal verb order out
If you order out, you order food from a take-away restaurant and have it delivered to you.
- order out I'm going to order out less, and cook dinner for myself more often.
- order out Simone said she was too tired to cook, so I called a restaurant and ordered out instead.
This is typically used in American English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
When we order out, we eat dinner
