1. Squable

Justin Yu and Bobby Heugel's Squable Is Open in the Heights - Eater Houston

Sticking to takeout doesn’t mean eating out of boring drive-thru windows right now. Instead, head to this Heights favorite for its famed French cheeseburger, lasagna bolognese, and bright veggie preparations like beets macerated in blood orange juice and dill. Pair with a bottle of wine for the perfect date night at home. Order takeout via Squable’s website.

2. The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation

This iconic Tex-Mex spot has its takeout system dialed in, which makes it easy to order up a truly epic feast of fajitas, queso, and margaritas. Fill your online cart with queso flameado, the always-classic Mixta Ninfa fajitas, and a whole gallon of mango-habanero margaritas, then swing by the restaurant and pick it up. Delivery is also an option, available via DoorDash.
