Drive-Thru Roundup

We're a couple months into the COVID-19 pandemic, and fast food restaurants have mostly let their free delivery offers expire. There's no shortage of new limited-time specials and family meal deals, though, so it's still worth a trip to the drive-thru. (Feeling nostalgic? Check out these 20 Fast Food Restaurants Then and Now.)
