Restaurants and Bars near Dell Diamond

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.

Restaurants and Bars near the Dell Diamond

Salt Lick

3350 E Palm Valley Blvd, Round Rock, TX 78665

Lucky for you meat fiends, you can get your BBQ fix conveniently in the parking lot outside Dell Diamond. We're not saying you SHOULD sneak your pulled pork sandwich inside, but hey, if it saves you some bucks...

Lamppost Pizza

661 Louis Henna Blvd Ste 450, Round Rock, TX 78664

The California chain has shimmied its way to Texas, opening its first area location here in Round Rock. Catching an early game at the Diamond? Have the kids go wild at the weekly lunch buffet.

Third Base (Sports Bar & Restaurant)

3107 S Interstate 35, Round Rock, TX 78664

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?

Quinn's Bar

101 E Main St, Round Rock, TX 78664

Although they don't serve food in-house, the folks at Quinn's Bar are totally cool with patrons bringing in grub from nearby. Junior's, located across the street, has killer fried pickles and burgers, FYI.

Junior's Grill & Ice House

119 E Main Ave, Round Rock, TX 78664

The small-town vibe paired with "just right" burgers and hand-cut shoestring fries are a game-day staple. Service is relatively swift, ideal for a quick bite before the Round Rock Express boys take the field.

Zorba Greek Restaurant

2701 S I H 35, Round Rock, TX 78681

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.
