#TakeoutTuesday: Casual and classic fare

We’ve been sharing suggestions with you on where to grab-n-go your meals in Downtown Nashua. Now that we’ve done blogs grouped by proximity, we thought it might be helpful to share those names with you grouped by restaurant type.

Now, let’s look at dining styles, to help you decide where you want to eat, and enable you to find new places to support, as our locally owned businesses continue to stay open for us despite their challenges.

Why not commit to #TakeoutTuesday every week, and expand your culinary horizons? Affordable and delicious options await you, with easy curbside pickup or delivery, and no grocery shopping and cooking for you!

This week, we’re shining the spotlight on those local hangouts that offer casual dining and classic dishes. From a quick sandwich, to burger and fries, or a hot slice of pizza, these local spots have you covered.
