Stability Food Guide: Texas


While every city is at different stages of re-opening, there is one thing that you can do just about everywhere. Get take out! 

Take-out is a great way to explore the culture of the city you are working in. You can enjoy it in the comfort of your home or even set up a picnic at a park.

With COIVD cases spiking in Texas right now and a lot of travel nurses taking placements there, we thought it would be a great state to start our Stability Food Guide! 

Giddy up!


Vaquero Taquero

Of course, you can’t be in Austin without eating tacos on a regular basis. Vaquero Taquero is one of our personal favorites. They currently have a walk-up window for takeout orders, and options for delivery (online or phone calls).

Franklin Barbecue

What’s a placement in Texas without some BBQ? You absolutely can not go wrong with Austin’s classic Franklin Barbeque. We recommend ordering a few days in advance to make sure you get your hands on their best BBQ before it’s sold out.

Lick Ice Cream

If you’re looking to beat the heat and in the mood for something sweet, you have to check out Lick Ice Cream. Their scoop shops are currently open as usual, available for curbside pick-up, and available via third-party delivery.


Saigon House

If you haven’t tried Viet-Cajun cuisine yet, you’re in for a treat. Saigon House is best known for “Viet-Tex” smoked brisket pho and “H-Town Bang” crawfish. You can order online for both pick-up and delivery.

Rosie Cannonball

If you’re wanting to unwind after a crazy shift, Rosie Cannonball is just what you need. They are currently offering boozy negronis in adult juice packs that make for the perfect after-work cocktail. And of course, we can’t forget about the food, their menu offers a wide range of pizzas and sides. P.S. Don’t forget to take a peek at their dessert menu. Did someone say frozen s’mores?

Houston Sauce Pit 

If you’re vegan and feeling bummed about missing out on the Texas BBQ scene, have no fear! Houston Sauce Pit’s menu boasts overflowing baked potatoes stuffed with chopped “veef” and Beyond Meat sausage and much much more. Try it out yourself, they are currently open for pick-up.


Nori Handroll Bar

If you’re in the mood for sushi, Nori Handroll Bar is a MUST. With a special curbside pick-up menu available, you’re all set to have the perfect sushi spread. If you’re having decision-making problems or want to try a little bit of everything, we recommend the NHB box set.

Cane Rosso 

Cane Rosso is known for their authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas. Some have even gone as far to saying this is the best pizza you’ll find in Texas. They are currently available for pick-up and delivery.

Keller’s Drive-In 

This Dallas staple is one you most definitely don’t want to miss. Keller’s Drive-In has the best burgers in town. Don’t forget to grab some crispy onion rings and a milkshake for the full experience. Not to mention, you’re always sure to have a friendly experience with their staff (even though their smiles are hiding under a mask).
