Staying home is one of the most heroic decisions that a person can make at the moment, whether they realize it or not. While we are missing a number of our favorite restaurants, there are ways around this issue. Many restaurants are still providing to-go orders or delivery options. And, DoorDash has now created a program that allows us to enjoy the same ambiance of our favorite restaurants, even when we are eating at home.

The Lunchroom is here to provide you with Zoom backgrounds that are designed to look like your favorite eateries. Those of us who grew up in small towns (and still live in them) are grateful. For us small-town dwellers, these restaurants represent the best opportunity to enjoy a social life. When there is not much to do, we can simply head to the Cheesecake Factory or Applebee’s.

Lunch! Who’s in? Invite your crew. Choose a backdrop. Cue the music. Head over to The DoorDash Lunchroom (link in bio) and download video chat backdrops and playlists from some of your favorite restaurants. Join us for a meal, the gang’s all here.

Best of all, DoorDash has also seen fit to include the Spotify playlists that these restaurants rely upon. There are a number of restaurants included in their program, so you can choose the one that works best for you. Chili’s, McDonald’s, Outback Steakhouse, Baskin Robbins, The Cheesecake Factory, Auntie Anne’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera Bread, and Cracker Barrel are all participating.

We cannot wait to hear the playlists that all of these restaurants have to offer. There’s something about hearing soothing melodies while you enjoy your favorite foods that cannot be beaten. If we cannot make our way to these restaurants in the meantime, the good folks at DoorDash are more than happy to bring them to us. The process is as easy as you would have expected.

Once you are on the DoorDash site, select the restaurant that you are looking to enjoy. After the delivery order has been placed, you can download your chosen Zoom background. The Zoom background and Spotify playlist will correspond with each other, giving you the true casual dining experience without even having to leave the house.

These backgrounds are a great way to beat the doldrums when you are tired of eating at home. Virtual dinner parties have become all of the rage lately and for good reason. DoorDash is now bringing the restaurants that you know and love directly to your doorstep. If you’ll excuse us, we are going to be hitting up our group chat to see if they are down for a virtual dinner at the Cheesecake Factory once the weekend rolls around!
