A lunch trip to South Congress is a welcome duck-out from a workday, but if you work downtown it takes so long to drive across the river that fording it becomes preferable despite the inevitability of your oxen drowning. Crossing the river to you, SoCo To Go.
Headed by a UT grad, SoCo's an online-orderable kitchen delivering home-cooked comfort food to the downtown area (Cesar Chavez to 15th, Mopac to IH-35), helping you avoid heavy traffic while still furnishing you with an alternative to the typical pizza/Chinese/sandwich delivery roulette, or even worse, chicken-strip poker. Register your address once (it'll be saved for all eternity), then choose from Southern classics like battered chicken fried chicken smothered in cream gravy, a hickory smoked chopped brisket sandwich, and crispy tilapia/slaw/spicy cilantro ranch Ultimate Fish Tacos -- as close to Heaven as you're going to get, since you can't do The Ultimate in the break room. To round out both your meal and you, add sides like fried pickles, baked cheddar cheese hash brown casserole, jalapeno mac & cheese, or garlic mashers, perfect protection against Vampire Weekdays.
For catering and larger orders (10+ meals) SoCo requires 48 hours notice, but their delivery is always free with an order of $7 or more, ensuring that your refusal to get off your butt and cross a river won't mean you'll have to part with any sweet, sweet wagon tongues.
