Are you missing some of your favorite foods right now? Or maybe cooking at home is a lot harder than it looks. A lot of people are saying that the first thing they are going to do when they get out of quarantine is going to their favorite restaurant.
Nothing says cabin fever like missing out on Margarita Fridays and realizing that you haven’t had a good taco in weeks because local businesses can not keep their usual hours.
That’s right, small, local food vendors such as El Fogon and Tacowasso are suffering now because not enough people are ordering from them anymore. Because they are not national chains, these businesses do not have the same support places like Chillis or RedRobin have.
What people don’t realize is that some of your favorite places are still open, and they’re working hard to keep our community going. Due to the national quarantine, many people have lost their jobs and business’ have had to find ways to stay in business while also staying safe.
So, your favorite spots have closed their doors and put up their chairs, but that shouldn’t stop you. Many of them continue to offer takeout during the remaining hours they are open. You may even find them on delivery apps such as DoorDash and Grubhub who are now giving away great deals to save you and the restaurant money.
To make sure your spot is still serving, check their website for new hours and how long it takes to deliver. For constant updates on what businesses in Owasso are doing during this time, check out the All About Owasso Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2933553376687693/.
It is important to remember places like these who make your community unique. So if you plan re-connecting with your favorite foods, support your local restaurants. That way they are still around when you are finally able to leave the house.
