Here’s a List of Chain Restaurants and Retailers Offering Free Delivery Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

The coronavirus outbreak has made getting to the grocery store a bit of a nightmare for most Americans.

Between being on ‘stay-at-home’ orders in major cities, to the actual grocery stores themselves being empty due to everyone buying whatever they can grab — getting a good meal can be frustrating.

Here’s a list of a few major restaurants and retailers offering free delivery at this time:

Chipotle will offer free delivery on purchases of $10 or more through March. The meals will be made in kitchens dedicated to digital orders using a separate line of ingredients than what’s available to walk-in diners, and everything that goes out for delivery will be protected by a tamper-evident packaging seal. You can even leave a note for your delivery driver to limit direct contact.

Participating El Pollo Loco restaurants will offer free delivery to customers who order through Grubhub from March 25 to April 7.

Moe’s is offering free delivery on orders of $10 or more. Customers can purchase online or through the Moe’s app now through April 10. A free kids burrito, burrito bowl, quesadilla or taco meal will be included with the purchase of any adult meal between March 21 and April 10.

Through April 26, KFC will also offer free delivery. Unlike Chipotle, you don’t need to spend a certain amount of money to get the deal, but a small fee will apply to orders under $12 before tax, tip and fees. To get the deal, order directly on or through third-party services Grubhub and Seamless. Those who prefer to pick up their meal can do so by placing an order at and then heading to their local restaurant’s designated pickup area at the front counter.

For a limited time only, use the promo code “DELTACONOW” to get free delivery from Del Taco through Postmates with no minimum purchase required. All packages will feature a protective seal.

Uber Eats has waived the delivery fee on more than 100,000 independent restaurants in the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, to increase cash flow to local businesses, they have the option to receive their earnings daily, rather than weekly. All orders must feature tamper-evident packaging and can be left at the doorstep for minimal contact.

To help support local businesses, DoorDash is offering free delivery on orders from more than 100,000 independent restaurants through the DashPass subscription program. The company is also dispersing more than one million sets of hand sanitizer and gloves to delivery persons.

If you’re in the mood for ribs or pit-smoked chicken wings, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has initiated contactless free delivery. The option is available at participating locations nationwide now through April 30. Like Chipotle, all Dickey’s food will come sealed with a tamper guard.

Getting people their prescription drugs is just as important as making sure they’re fed, so Texas-based grocery chain H-E-B is temporarily offering free delivery on all pharmacy orders. All you have to do is call your local H-E-B pharmacy and request that your prescription be delivered to your home or work address. Same-day orders are available only on weekdays, you can only pay with a credit card and you must be 18 years or older to accept the delivery.

If you have a prescription at CVS, the drugstore is also waiving fees on home delivery. “When you’re in a position to increase convenience and help provide some peace of mind, you act,” Troyen Brennan, executive vice president and chief medical officer of CVS Health, said in a statement. “As long as COVID-19 continues to be a threat, we’ll maintain a relentless focus on how best to serve our patients, members and customers.”

Popeye’s is offering free delivery for orders placed online and on the Popeye’s mobile app. When inputting your address for drop-off, you may add instructions for the delivery person, including where to leave your food.

Carl’s Jr. is offering free delivery on Postmates now through April 6 with the code “CARLSJRNOW.”

Smashburger closed its dining rooms and has shifted to takeout and delivery only. The chain is offering free delivery through March 31 online and through DoorDash, Uber Eats and Grubhub.

Outback Steakhouse is waiving the delivery fee on orders placed online now through April 30.

You can get free delivery on all Denny’s orders placed online now through April 12.

Indefinitely, Edible Arrangements is delivering fresh fruit and produce in bulk with no delivery fee. This includes same-day delivery on orders placed by 3 p.m.

Jamba, formerly Jamba Juice, is nixing its delivery fee on orders placed online and on the Jamba app. Guests can also request contactless delivery.

Now through March 29, Red Lobster is offering free delivery on online orders of $30.

P.F. Chang’s is offering free, no-contact delivery on orders of $25 or more.

Burger King currently has $0 delivery fees on Grubhub for orders over $10. Beginning March 16, the burger chain will have free delivery on Postmates and, over the next month, free delivery will be available through all of Burger King’s third-party partners including DoorDash and Uber Eats.

Of course this isn’t a comprehensive list — feel free to leave a comment with other places offering free delivery to help each other out.
