Just 15 miles north of the state capitol in Austin, Round Rock is one of the nation’s fastest-growing and economically vibrant cities.
Even though we're The Sports Capital of Texas, there's still plenty of entertainment in town that doesn't involve a ball, a stadium or a scoreboard. Check out these attractions when you're off the field.
From business meetings to basketball tournaments, and everything in between, Round Rock has you covered. Our flexible facilities and high-end amenities will make your next event a sure success.
Relax at one of the many hotels in Round Rock. Whether you're looking for business facilities, comfortable amenities or just a firm bed to rest after the big game, there is an option for you.
You brought your cleats. You brought your jersey. Did you bring your appetite? Enjoy burgers, sandwiches, barbeque, steaks, pasta, seafood and more at one of our restaurants.
Urban Picnic has the sandwiches you know and love like BLTs, Tuna Salad and Pimiento Cheese. At this east Round Rock favorite, you'll find the classic Ham & Cheddar sandwich made with Dijon mustard and apple butter. And for the herbivores out there, the Chipotle Hummus Veggie is a must-try. Go Round Rock Pro Tip: Always follow up your sandwich at Urban Picnic with one (or a few) of their famous cake balls!
Louisiana Longhorn Café
Louisiana Longhorn Café is the place to get a poboy sandwich in Downtown Round Rock. This New Orleans original is served on French bread with your choice of filling – shrimp, catfish, oyster, crawfish or chicken. They also serve the poboy Pirogue-style, filled with the seafood of your choice and topped with house-made etouffee sauce. Ca c’est bon!
Hoody’s Sub Shop
The word on the streets is that Hoody’s has the best Philly Cheesesteak… not only in Round Rock, but in the world! This classic sandwich shop opened in 1989, and locals will tell you that what sets Hoody’s apart is the tangy hot pepper relish on every sandwich. If you’re not in the mood for a Philly, they have a variety of hot, cold and vegetarian sandwiches for everyone.
Greenhouse Craft Food
Priding itself on preparing their food with the most local ingredients possible, Greenhouse Craft Food has a great selection of classic sandwiches with a unique twist. Try their take on a Grilled Cheese, made with cheddar and spicy pimiento, or Aunt Lola’s Pulled Pork with house-made pickles. Don’t forget to add a side of their hand-crafted kettle chips!
Urban Eat. Drink
Did somebody say “Fried Chicken Sandwich”? Urban Eat. Drink in Downtown Round Rock has what you’re looking for, and theirs is topped with a garlic-sriracha aioli and housed in a soft brioche bun. Urban Eat. Drink also features a Turkey Bacon Club, Fried Shrimp Sandwich and a Veggie Lover on a multigrain roll, and every sandwich is served with hot seasoned fries.

WiseGuy’s claim to fame is their authentic Italian Beef sandwich that even the most discerning Chicago palates will love. WiseGuy’s boasts beef, gravy and Turano Rolls for their Italians they order straight from Chicago at their Prohibition Era-themed café. Stick with their more traditional offerings like Italian sausage or meatball sandwiches, or try a pita bread gyro!
