As Gov. Greg Abbott’s stay-at-home executive order has now expired, restaurants are beginning to open back up, while many have continued to go the takeout route. This weekend, we’re sharing five fantastic dining options from restaurants around town, covering both dine-in and curbside service, and some Father's Day options.

Note: Anyone who may have recently been exposed to COVID-19 or is experiencing symptoms should please keep others safe by staying home and using contactless dining options.

Dine-In or To-Go at The Annie Café & Bar

In addition to Bar bites and dinner served inside and on the covered outdoor patio, the longtime restaurant and bar is offering curbside pick-up and delivery (by Favor or a complimentary delivery by a manager if made by phone and within three miles from the restaurant). Those who prefer to stay home can check out the Dinner Take-Out Packages and margaritas to-go; each package includes the choice of one soup or salad and one side dish with your selected entrée, from Gulf red snapper a la Veracruzana to coffee-crusted filet mignon.
