Many restaurants have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help them during this difficult time, here are local restaurants offering takeout service right now. The coronavirus pandemic has crippled the nation's hotel, restaurant, and tourism industry leaving many wondering how they will make ends meet. Many restaurants are trying to remain open during the crisis and are abiding by new restrictions that have their occupancy at 50% and mostly fulfilling to-go orders. This is the time that the community should be out supporting our local businesses and restaurants as much as you financially can. To help you find out what local restaurants are offering takeout service, we compiled a list from businesses that were sent to us from a Foodie Facebook group. The list includes links for UTEP/Kern area restaurants and how you can order from these businesses. If there are some businesses that aren't included, comment below so we can add them!
