Raise your hand if your dishwasher is running non-stop and the sounds of snack wrappers being opened almost drowns out your spouse’s Zoom conference calls. We need a break from feeding the family and we are rooting for our favorite restaurants to stay open, but it is getting pricey to order take out food.

The restaurants are listening, and they are doing all they can to keep the doors open and provide an income for their staff.

We’ve put together a list of family meal deals priced under $50 and which feed between 4-6 people. Bear with us as offerings are changing daily, click their links for websites and Facebook pages for current specials.
