= to eat a meal in a restaurant rather than at home
“let’s eat out tonight shall we? ”
” we don’t have any food in the fridge, do you fancy eating out tonight? “

This is Luke from Luke’s English Podcast, and this year I’m teaching you a phrasal verb every single day of the year, and today’s phrasal verb is TO EAT OUT.


which is pretty clear I imagine, but do you use this expression?


So, this means when you decide to go out outside to, for example, to a restaurant in order to eat a meal instead of just staying at home and eating there.

So, EAT IN – “IN” meaning at home, “OUT” – meaning somewhere else, like a restaurant, a bar, a pub or something like that.

– “Let’s eat out tonight, shall we?”

– “Look, we don’t have anything in the fridge, do you fancy eating out tonight?”

– “Come on! Let’s go to a restaurant. I’ll treat you. Let’s eat out tonight.”

Okay? and then,

– “You know, we eat in all the time, I know your cooking is good, but come on, I fancy eating out tonight!”

Yes, that’s it for this one.

Don’t forget to visit teacherluke.wordpress.com and there you can find stuff, you can find like a transcript for this episode and loads, and loads, and loads, and loads, and loads of other content which can help you learn English.


So that’s it for this one. I hope you have a lovely friday evening.

Hey, maybe you’re gonna eat out tonight?


Bye, then, speak to you tomorrow.

    That’s exactly what i did, i ate out before to get home after my english class.
    even though I’m a such good cook, i hate cooking and doing the dishes.
