Ever since Gov. Baker ordered that all Mass. restaurants and bars need to halt dine-in operations on March 17, and would only be allowed to offer takeout and delivery options until May 4, Boston diners’ eating habits have changed dramatically. Restaurants were forced to get creative with their business models, with some launching takeout and delivery for the very first time.

Delivery apps have making adjustments, too. Caviar now offers no-contact delivery, which can be requested within the app’s instructions at checkout. Grubhub has suspended its collection of commission fees from independent restaurants, while Uber Eats has waived delivery fees.

In addition to your usual takeout spots, consider the following restaurants that have joined the ranks of those on GrubHub, Uber Eats, Caviar, and DoorDash, or are now offering takeout and delivery through their websites. Some are promoting free delivery, others are offering considerable discounts, and one is even offering the option to “text a taco.” However you choose to order, please be sure to tip well — these restaurants, and all restaurants throughout Boston, could use the extra help right now.
