Combined ShapeCaption
The results of this week’s Best of Dunwoody poll have proven that when it comes to Mexican food, Dunwoody just might be undefeated among its residents.

Business Insider compiled a list of the best takeout spots in the U.S.

While statewide dine-in closures mean you can’t sit down and eat at your favorite restaurant for the time being, there are still many restaurants in and around Atlanta that are open for takeout.

The financial and business news website reported that restaurants are among the industries most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the National Restaurant Association, 30,000 restaurants have already closed. Next month, it's expected that about 110,000 restaurants across the country will shutter forever. However, some restaurants have kept their doors open and are offering delivery, curbside pickup and takeout to customers.

Conferring with Yelp, Business Insider compiled a list of the highest-rated takeout spots around the U.S. Using a range of factors, such as total volume and ratings of reviews between January 1, 2019, and March 27, 2020, Yelp ranked restaurants. The eateries on the resulting list had a passing health score or a score greater than a B/80, when available.

In Georgia, Tacos del Chavo was deemed the best place to grab takeout and as of April 13, the spot is still open for takeout, the AJC confirmed.

The Mexican eatery offers traditional and American tacos as well as tortas, empenadas, quesadillas and burritos, to name a few dishes.
