Memphis Restaurants Offering Curbside Pickup and Takeout
In an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Memphis, Mayor Jim Strickland has declared a state of emergency for the city. As of March 19 at midnight, restaurants in the City of Memphis must close their dining rooms and go to a takeout or delivery only model. This is devastating for food industry workers, many of whom have been laid off already.
If you want to help the situation, PLEASE donate to the Memphis Food Industry Emergency Worker Assistance Fund and the Memphis Virtual Tip Jar. See more ways to give back and donate here.
BUT you can also continue to support your favorite restaurants, liquor stores, and breweries by taking advantage of their to-go, takeout, and delivery options.
Question: What restaurants are doing takeout in light of the COVID-19?
Answer: Every restaurant that’s open! Just drive right up and pick up your food. Even places that don’t normally do take out are doing it now. Restaurants and breweries are also now allowed to sell beer, wine, and liquor-by-the-drink to go in sealed containers!
I’m getting a lot of questions about which restaurants will do take out. ANSWER: Nearly every restaurant in town that’s still operating is offering takeout – most will even bring your order out to the car. Just call ahead to your favorite places and arrange it.
Despite the fact that it’s every restaurant that’s still open, here’s a running list, because I know people like to look through lists. I will update this once or twice daily as I can. If you want to be added, leave a comment on this blog post.
Definitely definitely definitely check out this massive thread for even more restaurants. I’m adding as many as I can as fast as I can, but the thread is another great resource with even more options. Check out the Cooper Young guide here.
Most importantly: You have to tip well. Have to. And tip well. At least 20 percent, but 25 or 30 percent is better. Servers depend on tips for livelihood during the best of times.
