Supporting Local Restaurants During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Local businesses have been drastically affected by the pandemic. They need patrons more than ever, but with everyone staying home, it could be difficult for them to sustain. Many restaurants, however, allow take-out orders to serve food to their customers, even with the lockdown due to COVID-19.

Social distancing is very important in beating COVID-19, so it is advised that you order food for take-out or delivery, when you want something you can’t cook at home. Take a look at these local restaurants that allow you to take your food to the comfort of your own home during this time of crisis.

*Metro Phoenix – Mesa, Tempe, Glendale, Gilbert, Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Peoria, Avondale, Chandler, Fountain Hills, Arcadia, Uptown, Downtown, Ahwatukee *Tucson Area – Oro Valley, Marana, Sahuarita, South Tucson, Casas Adobes, Catalina Foothills, Flowing Wells, Midvale Park, Tanque Verde, Tortolita, and Vail.
