However your Christmas looks this year, food is likely part of it, whether you’re looking for a quick bite or special holiday meal.
Luckily, plenty of restaurants will have options for you on Christmas Day. Various chains will stay open for dine-in meals, and many will offer delivery and order pickup on Dec. 25.
All the chains below have confirmed they’ll be open in some capacity on Christmas, although hours may vary by franchise. If you’re dining in, it’s strongly recommended you make a reservation due to capacity limitations. In fact, some restaurants will require you to do so.
You’ll also need to pay close attention to your municipality’s COVID-19 regulations. Some areas have closed indoor and outdoor dining and allow takeout only. So just because a chain has communicated it will be open doesn’t mean all locations in all areas will be open for dine-in customers.
