The official statement from P. Terry's can be found below:
Effective immediately, all P. Terry’s and Taco Ranch locations will offer drive-thru and delivery service only. Our dining rooms will be closed until further notice.
With the safety and well-being of our employees and guests as our top priority, we feel we have a moral obligation to do whatever we can to prevent the spread of Covid-19. At the same time, we feel a sense of responsibility to our community to continue to be a trusted source for affordable all-natural food, especially as our friends in the grocery business face challenges to keep their shelves stocked.
Closing our dining rooms will support the national call to limit people congregating en masse, and keeping our drive-thrus open will allow people to safely purchase food from their vehicle or via delivery from our partners at Favor and DoorDash.
Our Congress Ave location will remain open for online order pick-up and to-go orders only. No dining-in will be permitted at this time. If you place an online order at any of our other locations, that order may be picked up through our drive-thrus. When you arrive, simply notify our crew member at the speaker that you are picking up an online order.
During this unprecedented time, our hours of operations may vary and change by location. Please visit the Locations section of our websites (https://pterrys.com/locations or https://www.tacoranch.com/location) and click on the photo of any location for their current hours of operation.
Please know we will continue to be extremely diligent across all of our central Texas locations in our hygiene and sanitation practices to keep our employees and guests as safe as possible, while continuing to provide you with the fresh, all-natural P. Terry's and Taco Ranch food you know and love. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Your friends at P. Terry's
