It’s going to be a rainy and cold next several days so our take out game is gonna be strong! Not like we were dining out anyway but for those of you who want suggestions of good spots with a strong to-go program, I gotchu!
I’ve made it my mission to support as many local Austin restaurants as I can through take out. I know many of you are wanting to try new-to-you spots so here is another list of my favorite spots with the best bites I’ve ordered for take out! Get out there and support local Austin if you can. Our restaurants in Austin sure could use the support!

Southside Flying Pizza
This staple spot for dang good pizza in Austin has one topping $14 heart-shaped pizzas available Feb 12-14th for Valentine’s Day! They’ll be available at all Southside Flying Pizza locations for pickup or delivery. They pair perfectly with wings, a salad and some sparkling rose or champs! Do it!
We’ve ordered the Family Pack #1 from TLC a few times and while it serves 4-5 people, the 2 of us enjoy it hot and devour leftovers! Their seafood boil is seriously the best! You’ll get a lb. of shrimp, 1/2 of snow crab, corn, sausage, potatoes with sides of a caesar salad (it’s huge and I think there is wasabi in their dressing and I love the kick), mac n cheese, and hushpuppies! If you’re not a snow crab fan, get the Family Pack #2 with the shrimp and all the other items listed above. Pairs perfectly with their margarita kit too. Enjoy!

Chicken As Cluck
If you’re a fan of all things Nashville Hot, then Chicken As Cluck needs to be on your radar! We tried the Big Papa Poppers, Double Dredged French Fries, Evil Ex Girlfriend, and Bavarian Churros. I’d eat all of those again but I’d personally go for their non-killer spicy sandwich over the Evil Ex Girlfriend. I’m a wimp so it was HOT for me but I know many of you like that hot hot hot so that sandwich would be your jam! The chicken is fried perfectly and doesn’t go soggy. The fries were crispy and loaded. OMG the churros are a must too! They’re a ghost kitchen, so no dine-in but they’ll deliver and that’s a win!
I hope you enjoy these spots this week! Feel free to check out all the previous roundups I’ve put together with recommendations for take out. I’ve been writing these since last July so you’ve got tons of restaurants to check out!
