Many Austin restaurants and food trucks are sticking to takeout and delivery services during this time, and this includes local taco spots. With that in mind, Eater Austin put together this guide highlighting the best of the best taco trucks and restaurants still open for service, from Veracruz All Natural’s contactless pickups, barbecue taco family meals from Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ, taco kits from Cuantos Tacos, quality offerings from Nixta Taqueria, classic ones from Papalote, birria tacos from La Tunita, and more.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant/truck is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants/trucks themselves.

For more general takeout options, scope out Eater Austin’s takeout and delivery package and the running guide, as well as the ongoing restaurants with pop-up markets list.

A number of Austin restaurants have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
