Social distancing has unfortunately become the new norm in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and eating out at your favorite restaurants is no longer an option.
With restaurants across the U.S. forced to close their dining rooms due to COVID-19 concerns, many are relying on carryout and delivery orders to retain a steady revenue.
Fortunately, many national chain restaurants are showing their support for their community by offering free delivery services. Here are a few:
Buca di Beppo: The Italian restaurant chain says it’s offering free delivery to your home or office.
Burger King: The fast food chain is partnering with GrubHub to offer free delivery on orders of $10 or more through March 29. You can also get two free kids meals with any app purchase through April 6.
Chili’s: The casual dining restaurant is offering free delivery on orders totaling $15 or more.
Chipotle: Through March 31, the fast-casual restaurant is offering free delivery on order of $10 or more through its Chipotle app or online at Chipotle.com.
Del Taco: The fast food chain is offering free delivery with no minimum order through Postmates. It’s also waiving its delivery fees with DoorDash and GrubHub, but with your order must total at least $15.

With so many national chain offering free delivery, it's also important to support local restaurants. Uber Eats says it’s waiving its delivery fee for more than 100,000 independent restaurants across the U.S. and Canada.
