Our Mission

To grow and benefit with our community. The way in which we put meals on the table whether at work or home—is complicated, and making good choices for you and your family can be difficult. We are changing that: By cooking with seasonal and fresh ingredients our chefs prepare delicious food ready for you to grab and go. Our meals are prepared with zero refined sugars, no white gluten (AP flour etc), and no processed foods. Our packaging is 100% recyclable fiber and local. We aim to do business solely in and around our surrounding neighborhoods as much as possible. 



Johnny Burke decided to open Johnny's Takeaway in West Roxbury because of his new roots in the neighborhood.

After spending the last 3 years as a personal chef to a family here in Boston, Johnny saw the need for easy access to great tasting meals with health and taste being of utmost importance. He began a meal delivery service 2 years back which operated in Newton, Needham, Wellesley, Brookline, and Wayland. The business took off but became more about the delivery than the relationship of those he was cooking for. He moved on knowing that he would need to do it right and better the next time.

Here he is today in a great location in West Roxbury with great parking and ready to cook for you all!


About Johnny

Johnny started his career in food way back in high school at a local pizza shop.

Unlike your average pizza delivery high schooler, years later he took that passion and learned traditional technique while cooking at some of Boston's best restaurants. You may have already enjoyed his food at Barbara Lynch's The Butcher Shop, T.W. Food, or Belly Wine Bar to name just a few. 

After several years in the industry, Johnny left the restaurant kitchen to challenge himself as a co-founder of a Food Tech company, Corporate Consumer Goods Consultant, and Personal Chef.

Through these experiences he realized he wanted to design a meal service company that could reach more than just a few families. Giving access to delicious ready-to-eat meals for busy folks and families. Where better than where he lives now with his family in West Roxbury!

Johnny's Takeaway is your solution to weeknight dinners and weekly meals all ready prepped and ready to heat and eat for your enjoyment.


We love having Johnny in our lives. His food is always incredible, original and creative
