Houston’s Best Restaurant Take-Out and Drink Kit options during COVID-19
New York Style Pizza anyone? Frank’s Pizza in Downtown is offering their full menu for to-go and delivery. This includes their delicious pizzas like the Pesto Chicken, or Bar-B-Que Chicken made with extra cheese. You can also feast on their Wings, Beef Lasagna (a personal favorite) and Cheese Pizza Rolls! You can feed your entire family and have leftovers with their group meals that are also available!
Two Guys Pizzeria in the Med Center area is also available for pickup and has delivery available via GrubHub, or DoorDash. They also have a 28” pizza available for all of you with big families!
I can’t forget about my favorite food trucks that are still firing up delicious meals. If you haven’t tried the Chicken Shawarma Sandwich or the Italian Beef Shawarma from Abu Omar Halal you are definitely missing out! They have 5 locations and delivery available through UberEats and Doordash and Postmates. Oh My Gogi, Houston’s first food truck also has their full menu available at their Rice Village and Heights locations. Try the OMG! Fries with Bulgogi, the Gogi Melt, and the Ramen Burger – they will not disappoint! Be sure to check out their Instagram for hours of operation and more.
You guys know I can’t live without getting my Indian and Pakistani food fix, so I’ve been hitting up Aga’s Restaurant for Goat Chops, Tarka Daal, Butter Chicken Handi, and their delicious Garlic Naan. You can get 15% off when you order directly from Aga’s for curbside or in-store pick-up. They are also offering FREE delivery through Door Dash and UberEats.
Looking for some drinks? The Rustic is offering Mimosa Kits ($12) and Margarita Kits ($8). El Big Bad is also offering Margarita Mix with its famous fresh squeezed lemon and lime juices and agave nectar. One quart will give you around 16-22 margaritas and is just $18! Monkey’s Tail has Margarita Kits, Moscow Mule Kits, and Old Fashion kits all for $25 each, and includes alcohol. I could use any of these specials right about now…

Finally, you can also donate to the Southern Smoke Foundation which is a crisis relief organization for people in the food and beverage industry led by Houston food guru, Chris Shepherd.
