The massive Winter Storm Landon landed in Austin on Wednesday, February 2, bringing along below-freezing temperatures, rain, sleet, to the area, creating dangerous conditions and bringing back memories of what happened during the last big freeze in Texas. Out of precaution, many Austin restaurants and food trucks are closing up shop temporarily or modifying services.

Eater is tracking these cold-weather closures and changes below. Be careful out there.
