We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. As you know, many cities around the world have limited restaurants and bars to takeout and delivery, and others are in the process of reopening. We’re continuing to update our site with the latest information about restaurant reopenings, guides to getting something great to eat at home, and community resources to help support the restaurant industry. Stay tuned, and stay well.

Maybe you splurged a little too much at the beginning of quarantine (shoutout to Amazon), or maybe you just dropped $50 on a packet of yeast in an abandoned parking lot.

Whether you need a quick break from cooking or just don’t feel like spending a ton on lunch and dinner today, here are 13 delivery and takeout options where you can get a great meal for $10 or less.

Juan In A Million

$$$$
Tex-Mex  in  Holly
$$$$ 2300 E Cesar Chavez St

If Austin ever started a walk-of-fame, The Don Juan taco from Juan In A Million would undoubtedly be on it, right alongside Willie Nelson and Leslie Cochran. Is it our favorite breakfast taco in town? Probably not, but it’s basically a rite of passage, and we don’t know anywhere else that you can get a literal pound-and-a-half mountain of food for just over $6.

Order delivery

Delray Cafe

$$$$ 1133 E 11th St

You might get some confused looks if you tell people you’re ordering from Delray Cafe, but just say “the food truck behind Nickel City” and you should see some eyes light up. They’re background characters that deserve a more prominent role, with a focused and straightforward menu with things like burgers, wings, and tater tots. Currently, this place has a more pared-down menu alongside Nickel City’s “Daiq Shack” popup, but even if you’re getting a daiquiri to-go, the burger is the real star of the show. You can grab one with tater tots or crinkle-cut fries for about $7.

Discada

$$$$
$$$$ 2024, 1319 Rosewood Ave

If you’re the type of person who stresses about menu choices, you’ll be glad to know that Discada has taken that pressure away from all of us. They specialize in one thing: small, beef-and-pork discada-style tacos with cilantro, onion, and pineapple - so the only choice you’ll need to make is how many to get. An order of five comes in at $9 and should be enough for just about anyone.

Don Japanese Kitchen

$$$$ 2716 1/2 St Guadalupe

This food truck is a favorite among students and whoever else lives in West Campus, mostly because of their namesake “Don” bowl - a generous portion of fried pork, chicken, or fish over rice for just $5. They stay open until they sell out, which tends to happen around 4-5pm every day. There are a few other options on the menu as well, like karaage and teriyaki bowls, and nothing is more than $9. For now, orders need to be placed in person for pick up.

Cafe Nena'i

$$$$ 1700 Montopolis Dr Ste A

Cafe Nena’i is a small, mother-and-daughter owned Latin American bakery near Riverside and Montopolis where nothing on the menu is over $5. We’re fans of the pastries like the alfajor (a cookie sandwich with dulce de leche and coconut flakes) and the pastrafrola (guava tart). Their Cuban-inspired coffee menu also has things like cafecitos and cortaditos. And if you’re picking up lunch, make sure to grab a couple of empanadas, though we can’t guarantee they’ll survive the car ride home.

Crown & Anchor Pub

$$$$
Bar FoodBurgers  in  Campus
$$$$ 2911 San Jacinto Blvd

With $3 pints and affordable burgers, this little neighborhood pub is just as popular with grad students as it is with Hyde Park lifers, and it’s been a favorite of ours for, well, forever. The pint specials might be on hold for the time being (get a growler instead), but you can still grab a burger with fries for just $6.50.

Bouldin Creek Café

$$$$
AmericanVegetarianVegan  in  Bouldin
$$$$ 1900 S 1st St

As one of Austin’s longest-standing and most popular meatless restaurants, Bouldin Creek built their reputation on quality food and affordable prices. But of all the values on the menu, the breakfast taco might be the toughest to beat, at $4 for a taco so stuffed that you’ll need a fork to even get started. We love their house-made vegetable chorizo tacos with free-range eggs and cheese, and the vegan version is just as great. If you order two breakfast tacos, you’re definitely taking some home - this is not a challenge, or is it?

Top Notch

$$$$
$$$$ 7525 Burnet Rd

This Austin classic has been around for almost 50 years, and not much has changed about their charcoal-grilled burgers. Most of them go for around $5, or you can get a chicken-fried steak dinner with a side, salad, and toast for just under $10. And since they operate an old-school style carhop, you don’t even have to get out of your car to get your food, which sounds just about perfect for right now.

Baguette House & Cafe

$$$$ 10901 N Lamar Blvd

Baguette House has been serving quality banh mi in Austin’s Chinatown for years. They have a variety of traditional options, from the cold-cut classic - served with house-made mayonnaise and pickled vegetables, pate, cilantro, and jalapeño - to the super-savory grilled pork. We can’t really pick a favorite, but at less than $5 each, you can grab a few and save one for later.

Taqueria Morales

$$$$ 1415 W William Cannon Dr

Taqueria Morales, serves up some of our favorite tacos in South Austin, with generously-filled breakfast tacos for under $2 and street tacos that you’ll want to eat by the dozen. They also sell quesadillas, burritos, and tortas, and nothing on the menu will run more than $6.

Nicolai McCrary

Oddwood Ales

$$$$ 3108 Manor Rd

Oddwood Ales might be best known for its very good beers (try one of their pilsners or saisons), but they also make one of our favorite bar-style pizzas in town. These thin-crusted, cheesy 10” pies start at just $7, and taste so great at home that we’ve started calling them couch-style pizzas.

Chen's Noodle House

$$$$ 8650 Spicewood Springs Rd

Chen’s Noodle Shop is a small counter-service spot near Spicewood Springs and Highway 183 that has some of the best noodles in town. All of the noodles are knife-cut and served in soup or stir-fry, so you just pick the meat. Just about everything on the menu is under $10, and the portions are generous. If you do find yourself hungry though, or just want to try some more of the menu, we love the lamb skewers and green onion pancakes.

Nicolai McCrary

Taco-Mex

$$$$ 2613 Manor Rd

Taco-Mex is one of our favorite walk-up taco windows, with a variety of tacos, tortas, and lunch plates that are all very affordable. The build-your-own breakfast tacos are great, but if you’re there in the afternoon, make sure to grab one of their al pastor or fish tacos. All of the tacos at this Manor spot are under $3, and none of the plates are more than $9.
