Dine in service is the core revenue source for most restaurants, especially locally-owned establishments. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s recent executive order halts dine-in service, but allows and encourages drive through and carry out service to continue. Many Longview restaurants remain open and have added curbside pick-up and delivery options to their services. Additionally, some are offering specials to encourage residents to eat out during this time. Ask your favorite local restaurant what "to go" options they have and shop local to support One Longview.
