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.
