In our efforts to stay home, stay safe, our local dining is taking a major hit. Also, you might be getting tired of cooking by now. The CDC has said that there’s minimal chances of catching the virus from food and containers, so lets order takeout and support local dining! Just remember to:
- Call ahead or order online
- Pay ahead so that no one has to handle cards or cash
- Maintain social distancing
- Wash and sanitize those hands
If you’re worried about exposure, this is also an awesome time to buy gift cards to your favorite places. Our small businesses need us; stay safe and eat something amazing!
CurbsideUtah.com allows you to quickly search by city and food type. Need pizza in Ogden? Got it. Sushi in Sandy? This is the place, guys. The site also has filters for price, operating hours, and more.
The Support Utah Dining website has been built specifically to create a directory of Salt Lake restaurants who are offering takeout or curbside service. Links to websites for online ordering and phone numbers are provided. There’s also a link to Ty Burrell’s “Tip Your Server” effort, which is raising awareness and funds for service workers.
Don’t forget about bakeries and specialty shops, too!
Heading south of Salt Lake? Utah Valley has built a resource for their hungry residents, too. As a bonus, many of their restaurants are offering special deals! Family packs, freebies, and coupons are listed at the top of the page. If none of those fit your craving then cruise the directory for just the right thing.
Davis County has also pulled together a searchable list of curbside and takeout dining. They have some additional filters, helping you search by type of food or look specifically for things like drive-thru service. Each listing also has specific instructions for current ordering procedures.
Ogden City has created a directory of locally-owned dining options. Their list includes many of their local coffee favorites, along with great sushi and pizza options. Take a scenic drive up Ogden Canyon on your way back home!
If you have the ability, this is an incredibly important time to support our local eateries. Enjoy!
