As of May, restaurants in Texas could reopen for in-house dining at 25% capacity — if they so chose.

Restaurateurs have words on that: whether or not it’s the right thing, how to do it if they think it is and how they plan to continue if they think it’s not. Here, we lay out who plans to open. If you're looking to keep things curbside, there's a list of those sticking to takeout, too.

As a reminder, if you go out — to dine or pick up — wear a mask and practice social distancing, as suggested by the CDC and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
