Farm-to-table restaurants serve up thoughtful meals in Austin & San Antonio
Did you know that the average American meal travels 1,500 miles to get from the farm to your plate? That’s why Central Texas restaurants are taking on a new mission to source ingredients more locally from nearby farms and hometown vendors.
For Earth Week, we decided to dig in to see how our UberEATS partner restaurants are embracing this new mantra across Austin and San Antonio. Check out our short list of farm-to-table restaurants offering fresh, thoughtful meals for your enjoyment.
From their delicious breakfast tacos, to their local roasted veggie plates, Cenote uses only naturally raised and hormone free proteins and Texas-sourced produce. Get a taste of Johnson’s Backyard Garden, organic Margarita’s Tortillas, and more when you dine with Cenote. Try their Mango Fields Salad for a taste of fresh veggies and seasonal fruits.
