LIST: Where to find Ramadan specials in Austin

These Austin-area halal restaurants are offering specials for iftar and suhoor during Ramadan.

AUSTIN, Texas — Ramadan is the Islamic month when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. The month began on April 2 and will end mostly likely at sunset on May 1, followed by Eid al-Fitr to celebrate the end of the holy month.

If you're looking for halal dining options in the Austin area for suhoor, the meal before sunrise, and iftar, the meal breaking the fast at sunset, several local restaurants and food businesses are offering Ramadan specials.
