Austin restaurants: Where to eat outside

Health officials have said that dining outside — given restaurants and customers take proper safety precautions regarding sanitation, masks, distancing and more — comes with a lower risk of contracting the coronavirus than eating inside.

For many, dining outside is one of the few social joys that connects them with pre-pandemic life. If you’re one of those people, you should consider dining at one of the restaurants recommended below. (This list was current when the Dining Guide went to print in early September.)

Note: There are also many breweries now open serving food, and many bars with outdoor areas are in the process of adding food service that will allow them to reopen. Get the latest on Gov. Greg Abbott’s coronavirus restrictions at statesman.com/coronavirus. Check hours before you go.
