    do you really know of any restaurant that does NOT have carry out. I cannot think of a single one.

      People go to the Penguin because of the atmosphere/people and because it's written about so much. Worth the experience if you've never been there, but the food is actually pretty sub par.

        Their website says no take out window. But that doesn't mean they won't let you pick it up. Call em.

        Penguin Drive In @ 1921 Commonwealth Ave., Charlotte, NC 704 - 375 - 6959.

            Seriously, does anyone know of any restaurant that does NOT have carry out. I cannot think of a single one. In this economy especially any customer who pay's is gold.

              I agree. I was just clarifying that the Penguin doesn't have a functioning window, you have to walk inside to get your food.

              Oddly enough, I once had a restaurant tell me they were "too busy" for takeout when I called. Never felt like going back.
