And that’s just what this list from Eater Austin will help you do – dine well and stay local!

“Gone are the days that Round Rock was little more than a sleepy suburban sister to Austin’s bustling boom town. Since 2010, the area’s population has increased by more than 10% and with that growth comes an increased standard of living. This means that Round Rock residents need not make the trek down I-35 into Austin for excellent breakfast to hearty lunch to sophisticated dinner and cocktails.”

From Main Street mainstays to nom nom newbies, Round Rock is quickly becoming a paradise for foodies and hungry families alike with great options to cure just about any craving.

So, who made Eater’s list?

We’ll give you a sneak preview of the top 3, but you’ll have to check out their article for a complete rundown!

  1. Round Rock Donuts: It’s hard not to crave the iconic yeast creations with the signature yellow glaze. It’s horrifying to think that we nearly lost this treasure when the original Round Rock Donuts building was destroyed by fire in 2000.”
  2. High Country Market and Cafe: “Known as the “Gourmet Gas Station,” High Country is the place to gas up your car, then enjoy a breakfast taco or a burger and a craft beer before hitting the road again.”
  3. The Blind Squirrel Sandwiches: “This lunch joint prides itself on its attention to detail, from the scratch-made soups and sides to the locally sourced ingredients on its ambitious fusion menu.”

Want better roads? How about better parks? All you have to do is Shop the Rock. Seriously, head over to the outlets and buy those shoes, or venture downtown for lunch. It doesn’t matter if you are shopping, dining or getting a haircut your dollars are helping to pay it forward and build our community. What makes this possible? Sales tax. Though it may be the least sexy tax, it is the hardest working one. So next time you see a shirt you love, buy it. Your city will thank you.
