Chicken wings are a ubiquitous food that works well in so many forms: marinated, fried, smoked, grilled, innocently mild, ridiculously spicy, and so much more. What makes chicken wings even better now: the poultry item lends itself well for takeout and delivery services from many of Austin’s restaurants and food trucks.

These options include meaty lollipops from chicken wing trailer Tommy Want Wingy, Korean versions at Chi’lantro, Texas-forever takes from Hoover’s Cooking, halal takes from Arpeggio Grill, Buffalo chicken wings from Delray Cafe, Japanese iterations from Kome, and even a vegan option from food truck Spicy Boys. Order up on celery, dressings (ranch, of course), and to-go beer, and the meal is complete.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant 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 restaurant themselves.

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.
