Pick up 4th of July meals to-go from these Fort Worth restaurants
Like every public holiday since the pandemic began, Independence Day will look very different this year. There will be no mass gatherings for fireworks, no festivals, no in-person concerts, and no one out and about without a mask on as a mask is required to be worn in Tarrant County’s shops.
But the vacation itself isn’t canceled, and many restaurants have fun July 4th-themed menus for roadside pickup, perfect for socially distant picnics and small house gatherings with the family. Selected dishes offer classic dishes for the American Independence Day, from grill-ready burgers and smoked brisket to roasted chicken and mixed berry tarts. Check the order deadlines and schedule collection on July 3rd or 4th.
