Nothing could be easier than stopping at a favorite restaurant and picking up a meal portioned to feed the gang. One of the primary ways restaurants have pivoted to add a new income source into the mix, offering group meals for pickup and delivery is a win/win. Most restaurants offer a rotating menu, usually posted on Instagram or Facebook and updated regularly. Most, but not all, require ordering the day before, so plan ahead to keep the kin happy.
