Christmas is almost here, and whether you’re getting the whole family together or keeping things low key, one thing is for certain — sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking. Fortunately, there are lots of amazing restaurants in Austin that have you covered! These are some great places to order either a traditional or non-traditional Christmas dinner in Austin.
Salt & Time
1912 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78702
Salt & Time is absolutely one of the best places for ordering Christmas dinner to go! The butcher shop and restaurant has closed their pre orders, but are providing walk-in service for all their seasonal offerings. They have everything — duck, chicken, lamb, pork, beef, and plenty of delicious Christmas sides.
Stella San Jac
310 E 5th St, Austin, TX 78701
Stella San Jac is open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for dine-in and takeout orders! Beyond their standard menu of modern Southern food, they’re doing something extra special this year. Make a reservation for your group to visit Santa’s Workshop and enjoy a special family style menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
2612 E Cesar Chavez St Suite 105, Austin, TX 78702
Intero’s take-home and finish up yourself holiday dinner package is sold out, but never fear! This delightful little Italian restaurant has regular hours on Christmas Eve — and who said Italian food can’t be Christmassy? Their food is absolutely divine and you simply cannot miss their desserts and artisan chocolates.
1011 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704
Mediterranean restaurant Aba will be open Christmas Eve for a special Friday brunch along with dinner hours from 3:00-8:00pm. Their menu has some lovely seasonal touches, without straying too far from the core style of food, and their brunch is simply to die for!
IBC Bank Plaza, 500 W 5th St #168, Austin, TX 78701
It couldn’t be Christmas dinner without including at least one Chinese restaurant. Almost more classic than an actual Christmas feast, Wu Chow is open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day from 5 – 11 pm, and is serving up a massive array of spectacular Chinese food. And of course, you can also order takeout and enjoy an Austin Christmas dinner right in the comfort of your own home!
