If there was ever a great reason to hop in the car and get out of your house, this is it!

One local diner has decided to put a classic twist on the traditional takeout, offering carhop food service to patrons who drive on up to sample their menu.

RnR Diner in Saanichton is one of the many local dining establishments that has had to adopt a takeout-only model due to COVID-19, but they’re not letting that get in the way of a bit of good old fashioned fun.

The diner implemented the idea, trays and all, as a way to still serve their customers at a time when sit-down service is unavailable.

The carhop takeout service is available from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m Monday to Friday, with their full menu able to be delivered right to your door — car door, that is.

RnR offers daily specials which change every week, including a prime rib dinner with Yorkshire pudding with mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies available each Wednesday.

They’re also offering a 20 per cent discount for all healthcare workers and first responders for the month of May.

You can check out their menu here and call (250) 652-9966 or (250) 652-9965 to place your takeout order.

Unfortunately, roller skates are not included…
