Truth be told, tamales are really Texas’s best holiday dish. And Austin restaurants and food trucks are making it easier for those seeking the traditional food this season, either by keeping the corn husk-steamed item on the menu all year long or offering seasonal specials for pickups and deliveries.
Here are Austin’s best bets for tamales this holiday season. There are classics from Tex-Mex restaurant Tamale House East to vegan options at Mr. Natural to brisket ones at barbecue restaurant Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew. Many restaurants even offer preorders just for the month, including Lick It Up and Fresa’s.
For other seasonal needs, there are holiday takeout meals, holiday dessert preorders, and holiday dine-in meals. Likewise, check out these holiday cocktail pop-ups.
