Top Picks for Takeout Near East Carolina University


What’s a Pirate to do when their bellies are empty? Why, head out to some of the best takeout in Greenville, just a hop, skip, and jump away from East Carolina University. Best of all, these eateries all offer takeout or curbside pickup, which means you can bring your food back to The Jolly Roger and enjoy your meal relaxing in the comfort of home.

Get Spicy at Cinnamon Indian Cuisine

This restaurant features an extensive menu of all your favorite Indian dishes – and probably even more that you have never heard of. Chicken Curry, Tikka Masala, Vindaloo, Biryani, Aloo Gobhi, and even vegetarian dishes are available here. And be sure to check out their naan. Not only do they offer the classic recipe, but they also have Cheese Naan, Peshwari Naan stuffed with raisins, nuts, and coconut, and Chicken Naan, which is a meal in itself!

Chill Out with Mellow Mushroom Stone Baked Pizza

This restaurant, a favorite among Pirates, wants you to trip out – on their amazing pizza and appetizers. Try their Buffalo Chicken with caramelized onions and applewood smoked bacon which comes with blue cheese or ranch dressing, or their incredible Wild in Havana, which features jerk-marinated meats, Swiss cheese, pickles, and a mayo-mustard drizzle.

Satisfy Your Hunger at Cook Out

Fries. Milkshakes. Gigantic bacon cheeseburgers. When you’re starving, this burger joint is the place to go. They have more than a dozen milkshake flavors – you’ll definitely want to try Pineapple or Cheesecake. And their burgers run the gamut from steak-style beef with A1 Sauce and grilled onions, to club-style chicken with bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

Enjoy Unique Italian and Greek Cuisine at Basil’s

Basil’s Restaurant and Pizzeria offers a menu of delightfully classic dishes with a fun spin. Try the Shrimp & Grits, Sebastian’s Delight (shrimp, crab, tomatoes, and spinach in alfredo sauce over a bed of linguine), or their delicious Gyro Sandwich.

Get Your Friends Together for Some Burgers & Hot Dogs

Burgers dripping with juicy bacon, crispy fries, and yes, hot dogs with all the fixings… Sup Dog has the ultimate hangout food. Their chili dogs are epic, and you will never go back to plain hot dogs after you try them with bacon!
