History 

Unlike the other towns, the story behind the name “Round Rock” is very simple. Locals began to use this name thanks to the huge, round, anvil-shaped stone found in the middle of the creek where the first community started back in 1851. Since then, it has carried over this name until now. 

Another interesting fact that puts this modest village in history books is the great discovery of the Leanderthal Lady, the skeletal remains of a prehistoric woman. She was named after the place where she was discovered which is the Wilson-Leonard Brushy Creek Site. This finding shows that the oldest dated human civilization in Round Rock has started at least 9,200 B.C. 

Fast forward to 1990s, Round Rock is now a rapidly-developing city inhabited by residents who chose to live here while working in Austin because here, the price of houses and land are much more affordable. 

Presently, Round Rock is well-known as one of the best cities to live in and the place where Dell, a major tech company is located.

Area and Lifestyle

More than being one of Dell’s headquarters or a bedroom community, Round Rock offers plenty of amazing places to visit and must-try restaurants. This is one of the reasons why in 2008, Money magazine ranked Round Rock as the 7th most excellent small cities to live in the U.S. 

For a taste of authentic Southwestern cooking, you should head down to Jack Allen’s Kitchen where they serve fresh local food. Diners can choose from a variety of American, Southwestern or Veggie meals. Mexican food lovers rejoice, as the popular food truck Veracruz All Natural has opened its first dine-in restaurant here, last April 22. Also worth mentioning is Svante’s Stuffed Burgers along with other local restaurants like Hopdoddy, Salt Lick BBQ, Greenhouse Craft Food and so much more! 

After a series of mouth-watering “foodventure”, one can also enjoy a cold, glass of beer with excellent food while watching your favorite blockbuster movies at Flix Brewhouse! It’s the first ever movie theater, which has its own fully functioning microbrewery! Delicious food plus great-tasting beers plus excellent movie equals one incredible night!
