We usually bring sarnies to long games so tend to play through meal times.

As long as it times out right, it is nice to have such an intermission in a long game.

Depends on the game, really. I'd rather not take a dinner break, but some games run long and make it necessary.

I took a dinner break once when I was clearly winning the game. Came back and resumed only to suffer a great defeat. Never again will take a break.

we generally eat in the pregame phase.

Unless it is a long game or we got late start, I would prefer just to push through and finish the game.

Other depends on how much is left, how the game is going, how late it is, etc.

When I host we almost always take a meal break, keeping it to a reasonable short time frame so we can complete the gaming.
For me gaming is more about social than the competition aspect. Everyone plays to win but that is a far second to having fun – and enjoying a good meal.

We don't game that late!
We do take lunch breaks and they have not resulted in too many game enders

Sometimes we get together after dinner sometimes before. Never had dinner kill the game once started.

We all go to the same place to eat in one or two cars so I know they are coming back. Most of the time we order pizza and keep playing.
In my younger days we gamed one day a month for ten straight hours. We ordered pizza for lunch. For dinner we all went to a local sports bar. Had a great meal and a few beers. Then we came back and got right back to it. Eating out together was part of the fun.
I had to move for a job. The guys in this town don't like to game anywhere near that long. They game once a week, for just a few hours. Although there are a few us who will game 8 hours or so. A three hour game is hardly worth setting up the terrain for.
