A pretty good burrito place is opening on Wednesday, and I fear for my waistline.

I work three shifts. When I work mornings I usually bring a sandwich or some leftovers to nuke in the break room's microwave. There's an option to order cold or hot lunch from a local butcher who delivers daily though.
We usually order takeout when working late shift from a nearby gyros/pizza place. They have a variety of pizza in different sizes, various pasta dishes, salads and gyros. You'll get a free 1 liter bottle of Coke with every delivery when the bill is more than $25.
It's either back to sandwiches or leftovers when working night shift, or BurgerKing. There is one BK about 5 minutes away open till 2 a.m.

I usually pack a lunch, but my wife and I eat out once a week. There's a local place called Neato Burrito that we both like, as well as a food court in one of the buildings near our respective workplaces. Either way, though, I try not to eat at my desk, especially if I'm buying lunch. I enjoy the atmosphere of most restaurants much more than fluorescent lights and cubicle walls.

I pack a lunch. I'd rather use the money for student loans.

I try to pack, but it's easy to get lazy and eat out. Most often I bring it back, especially with food trucks natch, but sometimes I'll eat there if it doesn't pack well or if I'm meeting someone (unusual).

I don't get a lunch break at my job. So to make up for that the boss buys us all lunch every day. There's a rotation of about 8 or so places. Usually just get a salad unless we're ordering Chinese or Italian.

normally i pack a sandwich (turkey and cheese, pb&j), some chips and a granola bar. we order out (pizza, chinese) about once every other week.

I go home for lunch to let my dogs out. I try and limit my lunch to < 300 calories which is pretty hard going out especially the lame places around my office.

I used to either not eat lunch or eat out, depending on how cheap I was feeling. I now pack lunches every day, and I don't feel as weighted down in the afternoon.

I work from home, never make my own lunch.
Places I get food and bring home: Taco Bell, Jimmy Johns, this greek deli (GYROS!)
Places I stay there to eat: Chipotle, Lee Ann Chin, Baja Sol, Broadway Pizza, Arbys, Smash Burger

I go out every day for lunch. I just can't stand to sit at my desk and eat. I feel like I need the break to get out of the office for a while. Sometimes I go work out and then grab something on my way back but only because I don't have enough time to stay out and eat.

I usually bring my lunch in tupperware, nuke it, and then go eat out in my car. I like to listen to podcasts and then take a 20 minute nap. I definitely make the most out of my lunch hour!

I go home for lunch every day (I live 5 minutes away from the office).
I usually nuke a chicken breast and some veggies then pass out for a half hour. Occasionally go to Chipotle or Pollo Tropical and get a burrito bowl, or Whole Foods and grab some soup.

I pack my lunch. A 6oz yogurt, granola bar, and a bologna&cheese sandwich usually fits the bill and is cheaper than eating out everyday.

When working, like now...I typically do "healthy" fast food.
-Chick-fil-a Grilled chicken sandwich (occasionally the club)
-Potbelly, Turkey sandwich on wheat with no mayo, oil or cheese or the Farmhouse salad with no bacon or dressing
-Subway 6" sandwich on wheat, chicken, no dressing and lots of veggies
-Chipotle chicken salad with no dressing, veggies and guac
-In N' Out - burger protein style (no bun) and no dressing (w/mustard, ketchup)

Both my wife and I cook quite a bit, so we always take our meals. I haven't eaten out while at work in a couple of years.
