For the carnivores and craft beer fans among us, nothing beats an exquisite burger washed down with a pint. Dixie Grill & Bar, a South of Southern neighborhood hangout, prioritizes both components in equal measure. Order one of its famous burgers to go—the Fire Burger is perfect for those who crave a little heat—and pair it with a crowler (a 32-ounce aluminum can sealed on-site) of one of the house-brewed creations, such as the Hoplomatic Immunity IPA or the Ambrocious Amber Ale. Call 561-586-3189 or visit the website to place an order.

Now more than ever, I find myself craving foods I can’t easily recreate at home. Leila Restaurant, family-owned and -operated for 17 years in West Palm Beach, provides the right combination of exotic and familiar. Open for takeout and delivery during both lunch and dinner, the Mediterranean grill serves the Awad family’s Lebanese and Syrian recipes, like Shish Tawook grilled chicken, flame-grilled fish, and vegan- and vegetarian-friendly mezze, such as crispy falafel, tabbouleh, labaneh, and creamy hummus. Call 561-659-7373 or visit the website to place an order.

Maison Carlos, the tiny, family-owned West Palm restaurant with the cult following, is feeding our pizza and pasta habit with weekly takeout specials on both. On Mondays, pile on the pizzas, and on Tuesdays, choose among linguine allá vongole, penne Bolognese, and penne with sausage and rapini (or, better yet, grab all three)—for just $10 each.
