After carry-out Easter deals began selling out last month here locally, it became very clear that despite this pandemic, people are looking to enjoy a carry-out restaurant meal together as a special treat.
So with Mother's Day coming up, we contacted our local restaurants to find out what kind of carry-out deals they would offer on May 10. Based on the rush at Easter, I would suggest placing your orders sooner rather than later at these locations:
Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery - Danville
Bread Basket will offer a couple of specials for mom this year.
Their first promotion will offer customers their choice of a baby cake or sweetie pie and a bouquet of flowers for $30. They will even deliver it to your mom for no extra charge in Hendricks County.
If that wasn't enough, they also will provide a carry-out Mother's Day dinner for families that includes rosemary garlic roast pork with apples, mixed vegetables, quinoa salad, garden salad and oat roll for $20 a person.
Boulder Creek - Brownsburg / Charbonos - Avon / Stone Creek - Plainfield
Their Mother's Day Package deal feeds four people for $75 plus tax. It includes ham with apple cider glaze, field greens salads with spring mix, candied walnut, red onion, bleu cheese, bacon, craisins, cranberry poppy seed & ranch, corn & brussels succotash, sausage & penne pasta bake, bread pudding with caramel and bread and oil.
Mayberry Cafe - Danville
The Mayberry Cafe will also offer a Mother's Day dinner to feed four people on May 10. And of course, their meal will feature their signature fried chicken.
In addition to the chicken, they will also provide mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with bacon and onions, coleslaw and their popular fried biscuits with apple butter.
You must order their Mother's Day feast by Friday, May 8 by calling (317) 745-4067. The meal costs $40 and can be picked up between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on May 10.
Chicago's Pizza - Plainfield
If your mom is a pizza lover, this option might be more to her liking.
Chicago's Pizza in Plainfield has a Mother's Day deal that features two large one-topping traditional crust pizzas, two orders of breadsticks and a small dessert pizza for $31.99.
Frigid Frog & More - Plainfield
Finally, you can take mom to Frigid Frog & More where she can get a little treat for free. All mothers can carry out a free shaved ice on Mother's Day.
Be sure to check with each of these locations on availability before stopping in. And to all you moms out there, let me be the first to wish you a very happy Mother's Day!
