Restaurants around Central Texas aren’t just pivoting to takeout and delivery during this disruption caused by the coronavirus. Some are now selling grocery products directly to customers.
That means you can now go to some restaurants and buy not only takeout but also eggs, meat, toilet paper and more. Below is a working list of some of the restaurants (and catering companies) that have added grocery service to their portfolio.
