A reader was looking for “restaurants with drive thrus other than the taco bells and McDonald types… For those days you need dinner fast but you’re a hot mess and can’t get out of the car or unload the kids.” I think we can all identify with those days.  There were lots of recommendations. First, two great tips:

  • There is an app called favor. For $6 and 5% of total you can have anything delivered
  • Pretty much everywhere I’ve called ahead will bring it to me if I’m a bit earlier than the dinner rush and mention I don’t want to drag my four tired kiddos in just to pick it up

Here are restaurants that offer curb-side pick-up or have a drive-through window:
