Not in the mood to get out the charcoal and lighter fluid? Don’t worry, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Chili’s and most national restaurant chains have got your back.

Unlike Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, most major restaurant chains are typically open on Labor Day, the federal holiday dedicated to the achievements of American workers.

On-demand services such as Postmates, Grubhub, UberEats and DoorDash will deliver orders on Monday for participating local and national restaurants.

However, as restaurants continue to have staffing shortages amid the pandemic, which eateries are open to dine in Monday — and their hours — can vary depending on where you live. Several businesses will have special holiday hours.

While Dunkin’ and Starbucks kicked off pumpkin spice season in August, more restaurants will add the fall flavor around Labor Day. Krispy Kreme starts baking its pumpkin doughnuts Monday, which will be available through Sept. 12.
