Where to get take-out food in San Juan Bautista

Local restaurants continue serving as stay-at-home order goes on.

While San Jaun Bautista works on redesigning Third Street to accommodate outdoor dining and shopping, restaurants in town are still offering food to-go.

With San Benito County moving through Stage Two of the state’s four-stage roadmap, restaurants are also able to self-certify and reopen for dining. Things are changing daily, so be patient if your favorite items are not available or if hours vary from what is posted here. To support these restaurants without leaving home, consider purchasing gift certificates that can be redeemed when the shelter-in-place order is lifted.

I’ve been a freelance photographer since my dad stuck a camera in my hand on the evening of my First Grade Open House. My dad taught me to observe, empathize, then finally compose the shot.   I have had gallery showings and done commercial work but photojournalism is a wonderful challenge in storytelling.   The editors at BenitoLink have encouraged me to write stories about things that interest me, turning me into a reporter as well.  It is a great creative family that cares deeply about the San Benito community.
