Staying in doesn’t mean you need to miss out on food from your favorite restaurants

Take out specials like Bud & Marilyn’s fried chicken dinner for two makes it easier to “go out” for dinner while social isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whether you need a date night or you’re already out of ideas for what to cook at home, now is a great time to support your favorite local restaurants by ordering delivery and takeout. In addition to a la carte menus, some of Philly’s favorite spots are offering great deals on family meals, dinners for two and more. Here are some takeout and delivery deals to try while you’re isolated at home in Philly.
