This article is sponsored by reader Lisa Hopkins who has lived in Houston for almost 20 years and in the Heights area for 10 years. One of her favorite things about Houston is its incredible food, restaurant and bar scene, and she’s proud to support local neighborhood spots and independent journalism. When she’s not following all of the latest food news, she works in digital marketing at Stacey E. Burke, PC. She encourages everyone in Houston to keep ordering curbside, takeout and delivery for as long as possible to keep our vibrant restaurant industry alive!

Restaurant dining rooms across the state are shuttered but most still have their registers, curbs and kitchens open, adapting to the ever-changing challenges of the coronavirus crisis.

Many food establishments in the Greater Heights are now offering takeout, curbside pickup and delivery. If you are looking for a break from cooking or some comfort food during these trying times, we’ve pulled together a list of places providing those services

In addition, we have an ever-growing, citywide list, which includes a convenient map, and several other neighborhood-specific lists (plus, we are adding more every week):

A suggestion: to get maximum dollars to the restaurant and save yourself delivery fees, the best way to order is to call and then pick it up. Many establishments are even offering curbside delivery and will bring it straight to your car. (The exception is if the restaurant is using its own employees for delivery, in which case, delivery is helping keep them employed. If that’s the case — don’t forget to tip since they’re not waiting tables right now!) However, using a third-party delivery service is better than nothing.

Also, consider buying gift cards from your favorites now. This is a crushingly difficult time for the restaurant and bar industry, and every dollar counts. Sufficient support from customers means these places will still be here when COVID-19 is just an ugly memory. For additional ways to help, you can read here.

Important update: On March 20, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a waiver allowing restaurants with the proper licenses to deliver alcoholic beverages. TABC media relations officer Chris Porter clarified this rule, saying “The Governor’s waiver allows to-go sales of alcoholic beverages in their manufacturer-sealed containers only.” The TABC notice on this issue is available online. Porter added, “As before, locations with a Wine and Beer Retailer’s Permit can continue to sell growlers to-go as they did previously.
