Why just lunches?  because these boxed lunches are ready to be picked up since people have lunch hour from 30 minutes to one hr. You don't have to order in advance.  It is like Fast Food  "prepared and to go".

As for dinner, you do a take out order.  it takes about 10-15 minutes.

可是如果我晚上也是吃盒饭, 也是打电话给快餐店说" 给我一份boxed lunch"吗? 这不是很奇怪?

FZ:    yes, that would be very funny indeed, esp the joke is on you. That is like you try to order a  can of coke, or a can of beer. Besides, most of the prepackaged lunches are either gone or "thrown out" (by law).  But if you call in an order which is considered a take out order, it is no longer for a boxed lunch.  BUT if you remember what the name of the dish is, you just roder that dish. [BUT the price is not the same]  I presume in your country there are two to five items that have been prepared daily as boxed lunches, like our sandwitches here wrapped in see-thru plastics. People come and just pick it up with a can of soda or a package of potato chips.  Our home delivery also serve lunches to companies but they again are prepackaged sandwiches or boxes with meat and pasta, or pizza.  Then there are the roach coach that comes to the firm's front door and sell and cook on the van on prearranged time (usually stays for less than 30 minutes..

快餐店有很多的饭可以挑的.不过我不知道他们是不是预先准备好的,我没去过他们的店.我一般都是打电话.

有很多外卖做很多的菜单在我们公司门口发,我就挑菜名,打电话过去.

不过我不喜欢吃三明治或汉堡.我喜欢吃米饭,吃中餐
