Like Ana says it depends! What you prefer to eat, The varieties of food type, etc, etc! Eg. I can eat pretty cheaply eating out with coupons, senior discounts, all you can eat meals! Then again I can eat pretty cheap at home using eggs, spam, leftovers, etc, etc!

Well yes of course eating out is more expensive......going strictly by your question....even macdonalds is expensive can by a steak and make a good meal for two for less than eating there ....

Typically eating out as one is paying not only for the food, but those who cook and serve it, and simply the experience of being in a restaurant. I suppose cooking at home can be just as pricey, but it would really depends on the occasion or food.

it depends entirely on how valuable you're time is compared to you're disposable income. If I had the option; I'd pay a chef in my home and have quality home cooked meals without wasting my own time on making them; or cleaning up afterwards.

Neither.

Depends on the experience you are looking for.

And, of course, your wallet.

If you consider heating up prepackaged dinners like mac ‘n cheese, cooking at home, rather than from scratch then, it’s cheaper than any fast food but, if you want to eat food made from scratch with expensive ingredients, home cooking costs more $$.
