Happy Easter 2019!

Don't worry if you haven't had time to cook the perfect Easter brunch. There are plenty of restaurants open on Easter for brunch and dinner every year, and they often even have special Easter deals and menu items.

As you'd imagine, diner chains like IHOP, Denny's, and Waffle House are open on Easter 2019, as are nearly all of the big fast food players, including McDonald's, Starbucks, Wendy's, Taco Bell, and Burger King. The one notable exception is Chick-fil-A, which is always closed on Sundays, Easter included.
