As the coronavirus pandemic continues to keep many citizens quarantined, many restaurants such as McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's are offering free meals and other deals to customers. Much of the nation has been under social distancing guidelines for nearly two months, which has led to several food businesses closing down their dining rooms. However, a lot of those same businesses are still offering pick-up or delivery options.
Understandably, with many people being at home for 90 percent of their time, the number of take-out and delivery orders has been growing. Furthermore, while some people still get out to go to the grocery store, occasionally it is nice to have someone else do the cooking. That's where this great list, first shared by Good Housekeeping comes in. It features a number of delicious restaurants that have some enticing offers to help customers decide what to chow down on.
While most of the offers below are know to be available nationwide, customers should call ahead to see of their local restaurants are offering them. Additionally, customers will want to make sure they confirm new business hours with the restaurants, as many have changed during this time. Scroll down to check out the deals!
