What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

Local restaurants run the gamut from local cuisines to almost all European types. There are a few Thai/pan-Asian and sushi places. Mexican and Indian are probably the two most popular culinary cultures that are NOT (or very poorly) represented here. Many restaurants offer either food delivery or take-out and there are several fast food chains represented here as well, including a new Starbucks. - Oct 24, 2017
Rabat has a wide variety of restaurants. Moroccan, French, Spanish, Italian, American, German, etc. restaurants are in the city. Many places deliver, and there's a smartphone app for delivery services (Jumia).

U.S. fast food options are McDonalds, Burger King, Dominos, Pizza Hut, KFC. All deliver. - Oct 23, 2017

Pizza takeout is easy and plentiful - Aug 29, 2017
McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, Pizza Hut, Dominoes. Nothing with pork products! Pepperoni is beef, bacon if available, is turkey. - Jul 20, 2014
There is a good, but not exhaustive, range of restaurants. The best ones are, obviously, Moroccan or French, but there are also some Spanish, Italian and Asian options. Casablanca has a much more vibrant and extensive restaurant scene, so when one goes there for work (or fun) you can scratch various itches. - Nov 17, 2011
McD's, KFC (hahahahah), Pizza Hut (puke). You can find really good Moroccan food. It gets old really fast. There's no infusion. It's standard fair....and after 3 months of Tagine you want to shoot your self in the face. - Nov 16, 2011
McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Dominos, TGIF, lots of Italian, a few Japanese and Chinese, a Lebanese, lots of French and needless to say, Moroccan restaurants. Cost is about the same as the US. - Sep 18, 2011
McDonald's, KFC, TGI Fridays, Pizza Hut. Prices are moderate. Local restaurants are good and can be a real bargain. - Apr 8, 2010
McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Domino's and they just opened a TGI Fridays. Local restaurants are pretty good but they open later in the evening. - Jun 3, 2008
