Still, I think housing is a bigger deal for most people than pizza.
For sure.
But it's not just the pizza. It's everything. Cost of living is just higher here (in addition to the outrageous home prices)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Not on groceries or on take-out food.

Hm...
Quote
Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia exempt most food purchased for consumption at home from the state sales tax. South Carolina is the state that most recently eliminated its sales tax on food (effective November 1, 2007).

Seven states tax groceries at lower rates than other goods; they are Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Five states — Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Oklahoma, and South Dakota— tax groceries fully but offer credits or rebates offsetting some of the taxes paid on food by some portions of the population. These credits or rebates usually are set at a flat amount per family member. The amounts and eligibility rules vary, but may be too narrow and/or insufficient to give eligible households full relief from sales taxes paid on food purchases.

Two states continue to apply their sales tax fully to food purchased for home consumption without providing any offsetting relief for low- and moderate-income families. They are Alabama and Mississippi.

Nope.
According to this table, Ohio is the only state that doesn't tax dine-in take-out prepared food (other than Delaware, where there's no sales tax at all).

All of that is referring to groceries, not prepared food. See the table I linked to above.

Home consumption to me means take out too.
I know for sure in CA if it's to go, there's no tax. The people at Coffee Bean always remind their customers to say the food/drinks are to go.

Do people get all their food "to go" with waiter service?

Groceries in that table generally means unprepared food. It's a general summary, so obviously you have to look at specific states for details, but for Ohio, they only charge tax on prepared food for dine-in. All other food (unprepared, or prepared take-out) is tax exempt.

In grocery stores, unprepared food items are not taxed but vitamins and all other items are. Ready-to-eat hot foods, whether sold by supermarkets or other vendors, are taxed. Restaurant bills are taxed. As an exception, hot beverages and bakery items are tax-exempt if and only if they are for take-out and are not sold with any other hot food. If consumed on the seller's premises, such items are taxed like restaurant meals. All other food is exempt from sales tax.
