It's Labor Day weekend this weekend, the traditional last holiday weekend of summer in which many people all across the United States enjoy a Monday off by enjoying the warm summer weather before fall arrives with its cooler temperatures. For many that enjoyment means cookouts and food-related gatherings, but what if you're not in a cookout mood? What if you've been tasked with bringing something to the picnic but cooking isn't your thing? What if you just want to go get a fast food taco because why not?
Fortunately, many restaurants and food-related establishments remain open for Labor Day, especially fast food locations. That's right, if you need your Taco Bell fix or you're in need of a delicious chicken sandwich (just not from Popeye's since they're sadly sold out), you'll be able to satisfy that craving pretty easily. In fact, we want to make it even easier for you so we've put together a list of some of the major fast food chains that will be open on Labor Day. You might want to double check your local restaurant's hours before heading out as the holiday may impact hours of operation, but these are some of the places you'll be able to hit up over the holiday.
That's right, we're starting with coffee. Starbucks locations will be open for all your Pumpkin Spice Latte and new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew needs. Most stores in the popular coffee chain will be open for the holiday, but you definitely want to check your local store before going for your caffeine fix. Store hours vary by location and some stores do adjust their individual hours based on business.prevnext

They may be sold out of chicken sandwiches. Someone may be suing the Miami-based chain, in part, because they are sold out of those chicken sandwiches. None of that is going to stop Popeyes from being open and available for your chicken needs on Labor Day.prevnext
Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings just announced their contender in the chicken sandwich wars and yes, you will be able to try it out over Labor Day! The restaurant is open, letting fans try out their new Southern Chicken Sandwich and their Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. Both sandwiches use the same Beer-Battered Chicken base, but interpret things a bit differently with the Southern version topped with Swiss cheese, bacon, aioli, Napa slaw and house pickles on a challah bun while the Nashville version switches things up by tossing the chicken in Nashville hot sauce, trading out the aioli for Ranch, and kicks things up a notch with Fresno chiles on top.prevnext
