Welcome to Tacoma! We hope you have a great experience. Here’s a dining guide with restaurants that offer take-out. All of these restaurants are within a 10-minute drive of the Tacoma Convention Center, but most are much closer than that.

DINING OUT TIPS


CALL BEFORE YOU GO: Snow accumulation has made dining out this weekend tough. I originally had 40 restaurants on this list, but I’ve confirmed more than 20 are closed this weekend due to snow. I put an asterisk below on restaurants I was not able to confirm as open. Otherwise, if not marked, I’ve confirmed the restaurant is open. However, call ahead because hours might vary due to road conditions.
DINING STYLE: Restaurant capacity is limited, which is why this guide is a take-out guide.
MASKS REQUIRED: Masks are required inside all restaurants and heavily enforced. You must provide your own mask, no exceptions. Our local culture is heavily in favor of mask wearing.
DIETARY TIP: If you have a dining restriction, such as a vegan, keto or gluten-free diet, please do a search of the page for the terms “vegan,” “gluten free,” etc. I’ve noted where you can find food to meet your dietary needs.
