Round Rock restaurants get some love from Zagat

Dining guide Zagat just released a list of the Top 10 Reasons You Should Drive to Round Rock.

“With the number of incredible restaurants within Austin city limits, traveling outside of town for dinner might not top your list — but it should,” the article begins. “Not quite 30 minutes from Downtown Austin, Round Rock chefs are stirring up food that’s worth the risk of getting caught in IH-35 traffic.”

The article features some of the better-known dining spots in Round Rock, such as Greenhouse Craft Foods and Deckhand Oyster Bar, as well as newcomers like Mambo House in Downtown and Little Mama’s, a Filipino eatery.

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.

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.
