New menu, hours, and online ordering!

We’re still open, and now we have online ordering! We have five locations open for take-out and curbside delivery (South Lamar and Triangle are temporarily closed), new hours of 10:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m., a new, simplified menu (scroll to end of this article for link), and ONLINE ORDERING! Three locations (Milagro, Hacienda, and the original Maudie’s Cafe) have online ordering up and running and the other two will be added very soon.

Our catering department is currently closed. If you have an event scheduled with us, we’ll reach out to finalize details.

Things in Austin and around the world are rapidly changing. While we adjust to this new reality, we’re looking forward to the day things are back to a new normal, with the devout hope that we’ll then bring back all of our employees to all of our locations. In the meantime, we’re still here for you, and are making every effort to ensure the safety of our customers, employees, and food. Thank you for your support.

Help Maudie’s employees

From Maudie’s owner Joe Draker, a fundraiser to help raise money for Maudie’s employees who have been laid off due to the pandemic crisis: Like so many of my colleagues, I would never have imagined the situation we are in today. It’s heart-wrenching to see our family-owned restaurants of more than 25 years close to customers and to be forced to lay off many of our employees, some of whom have been with us for generations.  While we plan to continue serving to-go at select locations, we’re only able to provide work for a fraction of our workforce. Our devout hope is that we’ll be able to re-open closed locations and hire all of our employees back. None of us knows when that might be.

Our community of customers has been amazing, leaving very generous tips for employees they’ve built relationships with over the years. We want to help facilitate this generosity on behalf of our employees and that’s why we’ve started this fund.

Our goal is to provide some cash to all impacted employees, to help them pay for housing, food, medical care, and other basic needs. Over our many years in Austin we’ve been proud to be able to give back to our local schools and nonprofits. We hope we will be able to do that again. In keeping with this hope, in this time of crisis we are asking our community to help our employees. Anything that you can give is greatly appreciated and will make a difference. All proceeds will go to hourly employees.

We love our Maudie’s community and wish the best for every one of you.

2 Maudie’s locations closing for now

We’re sad to announce what we hope will be the temporary closing of our South Lamar and Triangle locations at the end of today. Our other five neighborhood Maudie’s remain open for takeout and curbside pickup. These are extraordinary circumstances and we’re all adjusting to the new reality. We want to continue to serve our guests and take care of our team members to the extent that it’s possible with these major challenges. It’s meant so much for us to experience the outpouring of support from the community, and we’re putting together a way for those who’d like to support our employees directly to do so—stay tuned.
