Valentine's night is fast approaching. How are you going to spend it? Book a table for two at a restaurant full of other couples who all had the same idea? It's a nice thought, but there is a danger of feeling like a bit of a cliché on Valentine's Day. Instead, you could to stay at home with the love of your life and bask in each other's company – no distractions. Yes, there's a lot to be said for bucking the trend and staying home on Valentine's night. And with so many restaurants ready to bring dinner to you, all you need to do is order, dim the lights and light the candles. Let's take a look at the best in American fast food for a romantic night in.
1. Americana Express
Why not pick a favourite romcom to snuggle up on the sofa and watch while you share the Americana Express Meal from the Fernandez Grillhouse with your Valentine? Along with proper Beef Burgers and Mac'n'cheese Bites, you'll get curly fries and coleslaw and a nice big bottle of Pepsi. That's Valentine's dinner all taken care of with one simple click!
2. Ba'Rack O'Ribs
We like the clever play on words here; who wouldn't want reminding of a famous American President as they dig into a succulent rack o' ribs! Buddies makes a habit of naming its American-diner style dishes after famous people and characters, so you can tuck into the Schwarzenegger and Tony Soprano burgers too! But Ba'rack to the ribs (see what we did there?). They're rubbed in a BBQ sauce and come with a helping of fries and slaw, so all you need to provide are the napkins for this sticky and satisfying Valentine's treat.
3. Fizzy Feast for 2
You may have opted for a laid-back Valentine's dinner at home, but you're still celebrating a special occasion – so why not order the Fizzy Feast for 2 from MuMu? It comes with a bottle of chilled celebratory Prosecco, perfect for toasting your love together, and goes well with whatever combo of juicy burgers and crispy fries you pick from the menu. On the side you'll get onion rings, slaw, extra sauce and mac 'n' cheese bites too.
4. The Godfather Burger
There are so many appetising choices on the Grill49 menu it's hard to choose just one. However, for a Valentine's dinner on the sofa, we think you can't go wrong with the Godfather Burger – a beef burger loaded with extra toppings such as salami, pepperoni and Swiss cheese, and served on a brioche roll. Have one each, or order another main like the Rib Eye Steak Sandwich, with its stack of onion rings, and share the two dishes between you.
