Paper plates generally. Something like a burger in a wrapper goes on a plate, especially with fries. I don't like to do ketchup on the thin wrappers.

Mostly, but I'll either use a paper plate or put some aluminum foil over a ceramic plate so I don't have to wash it afterward

Note, I'll only plate so as to get everything on the same level/surface.

Depends on what it is. Some are more messy than others and go on a plate.

I definitely donít bother.

I would imagine my Mom would have, though, if we had ever gotten any fast food. She would plate my Mac and Cheese, even though I was content to eat it out of the pan. She said that I should always respect myself enough to use a plate.

I think I plate the occasional fried chicken we sometimes buy. But everything else, no. We donít do take out that often, though.

Depends on how it's packaged. if it comes in a container that lends itself will to an individual serving, yes.

I don't like Styrofoam clamshells, so I'll usually remove it if that's the case. But more places are going to other materials that work well as serving plates.

if its being reheated, yes, i will reheat appropriately, whether in the toaster oven, microwave, or stovetop. then transfer to a plate.

reheating in a styrofoam container is gross and a good way to eat weird petrochemicals.

It has never occurred to me to bring fast food, other than a pizza, home. Why wouldn't you eat it where you purchase it, when it is still hot?
