The dining rooms are closed, but the kitchens are open! COVID-19 has brought a lot of businesses to a standstill and has a lot of us staying home while safely social distancing. But we still have to eat and the good news is, we don't have to cook.

While state and local governments have forced bars and restaurants to close their dining rooms, they’re still letting the cooks into the kitchen for takeout and delivery in Greater Fort Lauderdale. And many local restaurants that have never offered takeout before are shaking things up and rising to the challenge. Plus, services like DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Delivery Dudes are working to up the game when it comes to food delivery around Broward County.

From deep-fried guilty pleasures to healthy meals, you can get anything your taste buds crave delivered or you can swing by for quick pickup. We have an ever-growing list of restaurants you can check out.

Here are few serving Greater Fort Lauderdale, serving something for every palate in every location. Be sure to check with each establishment for the most up-to-date hours.
