In normal times, Chew on This focuses on restaurant openings and closings. These are not normal times, with restaurants closed except to carryout, curbside and delivery. We know these businesses still need support from the community to survive, so each week we are going to highlight five local restaurants.

These are just a few of the many places offering carryout burgers; look up your favorite restaurants on Facebook or give them a call to find out what they have.

If you don’t want to leave the house, try a delivery service like Chomp, GrubHub or MyTownToGo.

As spring brings warmer days (Can we be done with snow now, please?), people are firing up their grills. But if you want a burger without the work, here are five places offering burgers for carryout or delivery.
