Whether you like enchiladas, fried rice, or a hamburger, you now have two options when it comes to eating out. Do you want to pick up your food or order in?
Today, in light of the novel, Coronavirus American’s are having to change their eating habits. Many are choosing to save some money and spend the time at home with the family. Others have already had enough and have to get out.
If you are itching to get out of the house, you can order online or call in like always. In this day and age, some businesses have chosen to provide an online ordering option that had never before, while others have already shut down. I hope you will join me in supporting those businesses that are fighting for their existence. Order in or pick up your family meal from that favorite restaurant.
Be patient, especially in these early days, as businesses are still working out the kinks. For instance, you can now buy liquor to go with your meal. Now I have talked with two different Mexican restaurants and heard very different answers. One was selling a margarita in a plastic cup with tape over the straw hole. The other showed me her fridge of frozen margarita mix to go tequila bottles that she provided to make your home mixer. Can you guess which one is the right way? That’s right, the home mixer.

Another example of growing pains includes new store hours, curbside or inside pick up, and portion sizes. That’s right restaurants and other businesses have changed their hours to meet the unique demands, so be sure to check before you head out likewise, with the curbside vs. inside pickup. Some places don’t want you to go inside, while others won’t go outside. And of course, as the restaurants work out everything else, they are also working out how much to provide in their meals. Some meals are showing up a little short on portion size, so be ready to ask questions and remember those businesses still have the same overhead that they always did, but more often than not, nowhere near the number of customers.
