We also encourage you to follow any and all COVID-19 protocols in place at your go-to spots. That said, these ones should be good to go on Good Friday this year.

Restaurants Open on Good Friday 2022 for Takeout and Delivery

Easter is a marathon of sorts. As soon as you finish up the Easter egg hunt with your family, it’s time to get to work on your brunch spread, holiday ham, or festive dessert (or possibly all three). This is in addition to all of the out-of-kitchen activities on your to-do list, like dyeing Easter eggs and setting up craft projects to keep your little bunnies occupied.

Before you hunker down for the holiday, visit one of these restaurants on Good Friday (April 2), so you can kick back, relax, and let someone else handle the cooking. To give you plenty of options to choose from, we’ve rounded up 40 chain restaurants open on Good Friday — all of which have carryout or delivery options available, if you’d rather enjoy your meal in the safety of your own home.

Many of these restaurants are franchised, which means hours may vary from location to location. Just to be safe, always call your local restaurant beforehand to confirm their most up-to-date hours and policies, especially since dine-in procedures are constantly evolving amid the coronavirus pandemic.
