Several restaurants offer family meal deals to help you balance the chaos and feed your family without busting your budget. But are they a good deal? Some are. For example, you can save 50% if you buy the Olive Garden bundle. Others? Eh. Not so much.

Here’s a list of popular restaurants, their meal deals, and what your food would cost as individual orders. I’ve also put in my delivery costs for the restaurants I’ve ordered delivery from recently.

Prices may vary between locations.

Serve a fresh and nutritious meal with Panera Bread’s Family Feast for four. Pickup is available through the Panera app and website. If you want Panera to deliver, know that their prices are marked up for this service.

Since most of these meals had so many possible combinations, I calculated the cheapest spend possible and the most expensive for price comparisons.

3 Flatbread Pizza Family Feast, $31
Three flatbread pizzas, two whole salads
Compare to individual total: $42.75 – $47.75
Save $11.75 – $16.75

Your potential savings can go higher with other family feasts including the 2 Flatbread Pizza, Soup or Mac, or the Premium Family Feast.

They even offer two family feast breakfast options (sandwiches or bakery goods).

9. Save about $12 with the Qdoba Family Meal Deal.

Exterior of a Qdoba restaurant.

Qdoba Family Meal Deals are perfect for taco night. Although they serve four to five people, I did the math for four. Pick up or have your meal delivered via DoorDash, Grubhub, or Postmates.

Each family meal comes with rice, black beans, queso, pico de gallo, salsa verde or salsa Roja, shredded cheese, tortillas, and a large bag of chips.

You have two options:

The exterior of a Pollo Tropical restaurant.

Although Pollo Tropical only has locations in Florida, there are 150 of them across the state. You can select from several Family Meal Deals for around $20. Order your meal for takeout, delivery, and dine in. For the biggest savings go with the Pollo and Pork Family Meal.

Whole grilled chicken, roast pork, large white rice, black beans, sweet plantains, four rolls
