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.

For more money-saving tips and deals, download the KCL app.

4. Save 50% when you order the Olive Garden Family-Style Lasagna Bundle.

If you’ve got pasta lovers, Olive Garden’s Family-Style Lasagna Bundle will be a hit. Unlike the rest of the restaurants on my list, this feast serves eight. If you’re feeding four, you’ll get two meals out of this deal, saving you money and time. Curbside pickup or delivery ($50 minimum order).

7. Save about $18 with KFC’s Meals for Today & Tomorrow.

Although Kentucky Fried Chicken has several bucket meals available, you can stretch the 8-piece + 12 Extra Crispy Tenders KFC Family Fill Up for two nights. Pickup via the KFC app (available for Android and iOS) or website or delivery via Grubhub.

The KFC Family Fill Up $30:
Eight pieces Original or Extra Crispy Chicken, Two large orders of mashed potatoes and gravy
One large coleslaw, Four biscuits, 12 extra crispy chicken tenders with four dipping sauces
Compare to individual total: $48.44
Save $18.44

TIP: The price for the meal is also $30 if you order with Grubhub; however, you should expect additional fees. My receipt had a $3.99 delivery fee, $6.02 taxes, plus $8 driver tip making this meal $48.01. Only saved $0.43. Not such a deal!

 

8. Get Cracker Barrel Family Meal Baskets To Go, but skip the Sunday Chicken Meal.

With five different family meal baskets to choose from, you’ll have no problem pleasing your family. The menu says each basket should feed three to six people. I’ve used four people for my math here. The best deal is on the Pancake Breakfast. The worst: The Sunday Chicken. Curbside, pickup, or delivery ($5 min. order) available for orders placed through the Cracker Barrel app and website.

Cracker Barrel Family Meal Baskets To Go options include:

9. Save more on Chicken with the Qdoba Family Meal Deal.

Jazz up your taco night with a Qdoba Family Meal Deal that serves four to five people, but I’ve done my math for five people, because they give you a lot of food. Even though you save more money on the steak meal, the chicken, at $5 less, is a better deal. 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:

Grilled Chicken Family Meal $34.95
Compare to individual total: $50.75
Save $15.80
Grilled Steak Family Meal $39.99
Compare to individual total: $55.25
Save $16.25

PRO TIP: Pick up yourself if you can! The Grilled Chicken Family Meal ordered with Grubhub runs $38.45 plus a $2.99 delivery fee and $9.21 driver tip. With $4.63 in taxes, my order came out to $55.28. That’s $20.33 more for delivery.

The Grilled Steak Family Meal ordered via Grubhub is $43.95. Tack on the $2.99 delivery fee, $10.44 driver tip, and $5.27 in taxes and I paid $62.65. A difference of $22.66 for delivery.
