Top 5 restaurants in Round Rock, according to Patch (per Yelp)

New local news site Patch recently listed the Top 5 Restaurants in Round Rock, according to Yelp.

Here’s the list, with our take.

  1. Hoody’s Sub Shop — Best Philly cheesesteaks in town, hands down.
  2. Jack Allen’s Kitchen — Don’t think we’ve ever seen a list of the best eateries in Round Rock that didn’t include JAK. And with good reason — farm to table done right.
  3. Pita Fusion — Hate to admit we haven’t eaten there, so nothing pithy to say. That’s obviously gonna have to change!
  4. Verde’s Mexican Parilla — We have eaten here, and agree it’s one of Round Rock’s best. Attractive setting, terrific grilled food and HUGE selection of top shelf tequila. What’s not to love?
  5. Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q — OK, so it’s not Louis Mueller’s or Franklin’s. But you don’t have to drive to Taylor or wait five hours in line. Go for the moist brisket — worth the extra

What would be in your Top 5?



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.
