With tempting takeout restaurants popping up right and left in Westchester County, there’s no better time to make that food order to-go.

More and more fast-casual takeout spots have been popping up all over Westchester and, while we don’t know if it’s a COVID thing or some other phenomenon, we do know this: We now have a wealth of options at our fingertips to make dinnertime that much easier.

Most offer a handful of non-server-attended tables for a quick bite when you need a change of scene from your kitchen, though there’s still nothing better than a night on the couch, waiting for the “delivery guy” like a kid at Christmas. Here are some of the newest, coolest, and quickest service offerings on the county scene.

Tako

1789 Central Park Ave, Yonkers; 914.652.7004

This spin on Mexican street food creates a fiesta of flavors with its fresh, authentic platos. Jeevan Pullan, owner of highly acclaimed Vega Mexican restaurant in Hartsdale, has opened this crave-worthy spot for indulging in tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and more made with local produce at a reasonable price point. Get some heat with arbol chile peppers in the house-made chips and salsa or “guac” your world with the made-to-order guacamole starter.

Chigo

58 Saw Mill River Rd, Hawthorne; 914.495.3323

With a play on “Chinese to go,” Chigo is a takeout, delivery-only business model, and what more could you ask for than a night in with Shanghai soup dumplings and sesame chicken? Organic, fresh, and locally sourced ingredients make for an extensive, flavorful menu of Chinese classics full of options for everyone. On a cold day, opt for wonton soup and some spicy fried chicken or beef bao bun. Want more? Get a half or full order of chicken and broccoli and team it with one of the many rice or noodle dishes. This is definitely a knock at the door you’ll want to answer.

Gustico Latin Kitchen is a taste of home for Latin Americans and a new craving for those desiring a mouthful of rich, authentic, foreign flavors. The menu focuses on the cuisine south of Mexico with many Peruvian accents populating plates made with anything your corazon desires, from steaks to seafood to whole roasted chickens and oxtails — two of Gustico’s most popular meals. Indulge your sweet tooth with a dessert like flan or dulce las tres leches.
