With no major league team in the area, Dell Diamond'the glorious home of the Houston Astros AAA farm team?is as close as it gets to big time baseball near Austin. The short hike up I-35 is certainly worth Round Rock Express game day fun, but does the same ring true for $10+ cans of Shiner?! Give your wallet a break and opt for any of these eateries and bars outside the ballpark for zealous (and affordable) pre-or post-game consumption.

If your extra-ticketed pal mysteriously bails on you, head to Round Rock's outpost of this popular sports bar and drown your sorrows inside. It's blissfully air-conditioned and the beer's cheaper. You wouldn't have had fun at the game anyway, right?
A short drive from Dell Diamond, Zorba can very well be---and we say this with almost 100% conviction---the best Greek food in town. Juicy gyros, excellent souvlaki, we can go on and on. It's family-friendly, cheap and perfect for wetting your game-day appetite.
