Trust us: If there's one thing on every mom's wish list for Mother's Day, it's to stay out of the kitchen. Sure, you can treat her to a Mother's Day breakfast in bed or a delicious Mother's Day brunch (and it's not too late to order a last-minute Mother's Day gift!), but she'll be just as happy if you keep the kitchen clean and order out. When is Mother's Day, you ask? It's on May 9, 2021, so it's time to start planning! Check with locally owned restaurants in your area to see if they're serving up anything special for Mother's Day, or try one of these tried-and-true family favorites, many of which are offering specials to feed the family. And if you can't be with your mom this Mother's Day, plan a virtual Mother's Day with her and have a meal from one of these spots delivered to her home! We recommend calling ahead to check the locations to determine the best way to order and to find out their hours of operation, as they can vary by location.
