Where to Find Family-Style Meals for Takeout and Delivery Around Nashville

From crispy fried chicken to take-and-bake pizzas, tacos, and more

View as Map

For Nashville households, families, and groups, the “safer at home” order and the banning of dine-in service at local restaurants through the end of the month in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic means there are comparatively limited sources for feeding everyone at the same time without a lot of a lot of prep involved. And with parents working and now homeschooling their children at home, larger format restaurant options offer much needed respite.

Fortunately, there are Nashville restaurants are offering larger family-style meals for takeout and delivery services. The meals come with ample servings to feed large groups, giving people a break from constant meal prep. The hefty specials work for one-off meals or even leftovers for multiple meals.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly.
