Where To Order Thanksgiving Food To-Go In Austin

Thanksgiving is upon us! And while some people love spending weeks planning, shopping, cooking, and crafting every single detail…some of us love to outsource. If cooking isn’t your love language you don’t want to spend your entire holiday working in the kitchen, good news: there are plenty of places to order Thanksgiving food to-go in Austin! From restaurants to grocery stores to caterers, here are some of the most delicious options. 

As with all holidays, the earlier you plan, the better your chances of getting the food you really want. Some of these restaurants open their ordering windows very early (like in October) and sell out immediately. 

Also, keep in mind that these folks in the hospitality industry are working very hard on this holiday. Be sure to show them lots of gratitude and tip well!

For sides, these are a bit less “classic” Thanksgiving and lean more bbq-heavy. But this is Texas, and no one is complaining! Pre-order their famous charro beans, Mexican rice, and smoked mac and cheese for Thanksgiving sides, and add on some classic banana pudding and smoked corn cake for dessert. 

Ordering your Thanksgiving meal at Valentina’s is perfect if you want it to be a little bit  of a classic Thanksgiving meal…but with a smoky Tex-Mex twist.
