As everyone knows by now, dining-in at Austin restaurants is not an option these days. It’s got many folks searching the internet for “food delivery near me.” Luckily, in Austin, we have great curbside and delivery options for you to choose from. Not only do we mention those businesses below, but as if closing their dining rooms for an indefinite period of time wasn’t enough of a sacrifice for all of our well-being, these Austin restaurants are donating food, money or kitchen space to hospitality workers and other struggling Austinites.
Here is a list of Austin restaurants offering food delivery and curbisde near you. So you can help support local businesses during the Covid-19 crisis.

Hundred for Hospitality
Service industry workers in Austin are suffering job losses and income insecurity. In response, Hundred for Hospitality set a goal to serve 100 meals a day to hospitality workers who need a meal. You can donate directly to the organization and 100% of proceeds will go to local restaurants to cover food and staff costs. Or head directly to Austin restaurants that have signed up to support Hundred for Hospitality, which aims to serve 1,400 meals per week. Participating restaurants include P. Terry’s, the Peached Tortilla, Austin’s Pizza, Easy Tiger, Old Thousand, Burro, Tso, Chi’Lantro and MezzeMe.
Hours vary by location
P. Terry’s has always been known for supporting the community and now, they’re using their food truck to take food to workers fighting the pandemic. Even though store hours have been reduced across the company, the chain has so far avoided laying off staff. All P. Terry’s locations, and Taco Ranch, too, are open for drive-thru and delivery through Favor and DoorDash. They recently added sanitized credit card processing for added protection. There’s also an option for ordering your food online so it’s ready and paid for once you arrive at the restaurant.

And thanks to a unique business model for the service industry—Tsos pays employees a salary—customers do not have to pay gratuity for deliveries.
