For hear or to go?
Is this for here or to go?
It's for here, please.
It is to go, please.

(Are the expressions above all grammatical? What is the meaning of 'is to' in 'It is to go, please.'?
Does it mean 'must'? That is, "It (the food) must go, please." Am I right? Would you let me know the meaning of 'It is to go, please.'?)

  • English -

    It is all grammatically OK, but "hear" in the first line should be "here".

    "To go" is in this case being used as an descriptive adjective phrase, not ans an unconjugated verb. It means that the purchased "food to go" will be taken out and not eaten in the place where it was purchased. The alternative is to eat the food "here".

    The last two lines are contradictory alternative answers. The "please" is a nice touch but would usually be omitted in America, since the person buying the food is really just answering a question.
