Your Valentine’s Day might be spent between the same walls you’ve become so familiar with this year, but try thinking inside the box, the take-out box that is, to spice up your celebration. Local restaurants in Overland Park are making it easy to bring the special occasion home. Our picks for great take-out and loads of romantic food puns below.

 

ITALIAN

Ever since Lady and the Tramp’s snouts met while eating spaghetti and meatballs, Italian food has been synonymous with romance. Not to mention the whole dreamy country and culture of Italy. We could go on and on, but the moral of the story is that counting carbs is not important on Valentine’s day, you must penne away!

 

AMERICAN

Sticking to the classics is an excellent choice to wow your loved one. A perfectly seared steak, or delectably grilled veggies travel well and all that melted butter will surely melt their heart.

 

MEXICAN

Dial up the heat and give them something to taco-bout with a little Mexican cuisine. This comfort food is a take-out home run for your special night. A little spice makes things nice and we haven’t even mentioned the to-go margaritas yet!

 

ASIAN

Overland Park has some heavy hitters when it comes to Asian food. From Thai to Chinese, Korean and more your Valentine’s take-out partner will be happy to indulge. Dim sum sharing is caring.

 

BBQ

Honestly, there is no bad time for barbecue if you are in KCOP, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. It’s smokin’ and sweet, and all about the meat. (No, we’re not thinking Arby’s.)

 

SWEET ENDINGS

All you need is love, but a little dessert doesn’t hurt.
