15 New Restaurants in Round Rock in 2021

During 2021, 15 new restaurants in Round Rock opened and we couldn’t be more excited! We absolutely love supporting local and seeing new business pop up in town.

New Restaurants in Round Rock

Black Rock Coffee Bar

Black Rock Coffee Bar joined the list of growing coffee shops in Round Rock this past February.

Cork & Barrel Craft Kitchen

Cork & Barrel Craft Kitchen opened to great fanfare & high attendance this past spring. Luckily, in the fall of 2020, we were able to get a behind-the-scenes tour and learn the history of this unique restaurant.

Brushy Creek Café

Owner Christy Bai always wanted to have a cozy, friendly neighborhood café. After managing Russell’s Bakery and Café in Central Austin for four years, she found the perfect spot to launch her own café in this beautiful Brushy Creek location. They serve food, locally roasted organic coffee and fresh-baked pastries. There are two outdoor spaces; the front porch and rear deck, available for parties and events. The staff are warm, welcoming, and friendly. The space is clean and bright. The patio is dog-friendly. And the building is energy-efficient, being in a net-zero community!

Sweet Tooth Parlor Bakery & Café

We were blown away when we stepped into the unassuming little storefront of this charming bakery. They have so many choices, everything homemade and over-the-top delicious. There are samples out for you to try to help you make up your mind because trust me, you’ll want one of everything! They also do gorgeous custom-made cakes and even have holiday themed treats like cookie kits, sugar cookie, and cakes. And to offset all the sweetness, they also serve lunch items like soups, salads, and croissant sandwiched.

Taco Palenque

The hype is real! People love this taco chain from Laredo and now we can see why. Their tacos and piratas are so delicious and we are so happy to have them right here in Round Rock!

Sam Bass Market

This sweet little market is the perfect stop on your way home from work or if you just need to dash out for one or two items. They have fresh produce, dry goods, a bakery, and food service counter where you can order hot foods like hamburgers, hot dogs, Philly cheesesteaks, and tacos.


Chipotle opened another location in Round Rock off 620 this Spring. The location features a “Chipotlane” drive-thru. The drive-thru concept made its debut in 2019 and the rollout picked up pace with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Black Sugar Caffe

This new coffee shop just opened up last week! The space is filled with light and gorgeous art. There are so many food options to go with your coffee. I tried the raspberry heart danish and the crème brûlée coffee and everything was delicious.

Milano Ristorante

We love Italian food in Round Rock and were excited to see Milano Ristorante open their doors this past spring.

Dutch Bros Coffee

You know it’s got to be good, because the line is always a mile long! We parked and went up to the window. They have a nice breezy covered patio. Perhaps even better than their coffee (which is, in fact, delicious) is how cheerful and friendly their staff always is.

Chok Dee Thai

Great new local place for Thai food with a very friendly staff. We are very excited to give this place a try!

The Kebab Shop

Opening this November! We are so excited to try the Mediterranean food at The Kebab Shop when they open.

Aladdin Halal Grill

Chicken Shawarma

This Mediterranean and Halal Restaurant opened this past summer in Round Rock. They are known for their kabobs, shawarma, hummus, grape leaves, and falafel.

Arepitas – Round Rock

This Venezuelan restaurant opened in the Spring in Round Rock. Their menu includes delicious, authentic and fresh Venezuelan food made from scratch, including rice bowls.

Tumble 22 Hot Chicken

Inspired by Nashville hot chicken and guided by one of the best chefs in Texas, Tumble 22 is a funky chicken joint serving Cold Beer, Hot Chicken, and Cheap, Stiff Drinks.

From a single food trailer to five restaurants in less than four years, Tumble 22 is blazing a trail with their commitment to all-natural, Texas-raised chicken that’s hand-breaded and tumbled precisely twenty two times for the perfect crunch.

You’ll taste the difference in everything we do, and with six heat levels ranging from “Wimpy” to “Stupid Hot,” you’ll have a dang good time doing it!
