Good, cheap takeout in North Austin

Just moving to North Austin, looking for some good takeout places for lunch and/or dinner when I'm just by myself and want to grab a bite without going fast food. Suggestions?

  1. I can't remember the name offhand, but the Chinese restaurant in the McDonalds/HEB shopping center at Braker and 183 is one of my favorites for take out.

        Yes, that's it. I could only remember that it has a red door.

    1. Here are a few of my go-to's for nights when I want to bring something home for myself:

      - Thai Cuisine on Parmer, near Cool River.
      - Asia Market at 183 & Spicewood (they're only open til 7:30 though)
      - Dynasty, next door to Asia Market. Pretty decent for Americanized Chinese.
      - La Tapatia at 183 & Anderson Mill. Good, cheap tacos to go.

      1. I love Zuzu's on the southbound access road of Mopac at the 2222 exit. Very fresh Mexican food. I crave their corn relish.
