Restaurants with their own Takeout and Delivery

It’s not an easy time for restaurants right now. With the entire hospitality industry effectively at a standstill, delivery and takeout were supposed to serve as a vital lifeline to owners who desperately need to make some revenue. However, online delivery platforms slice and dice their profits, so restaurants have adapted to introduce their own delivery or pick up programs. We have narrowed down some places that you can support directly at this time, without the middleman.
