Where should I take my mom this Saturday in the Georgetown/Round Rock area?
We've done Jack Allens & The Hollow already.
Looking for lunch/brunch around 12:30
Completely enjoyed the
Big Pig Sandwich
Braised pork butt, house-made pickles, smoked
onions, slaw, chipotle cider aioli $8
at greenhouse craft food. More meat than the Noble Pig.
If you approach from I-35, it's easy to drive past it. It's in a small shopping center *before* the light.
Also, if you like sweet potato fries, they do have excellent sweet potato fries. Crisp and delicious.
I have enjoyed everything I have had at Greenhouse. My favorite is their BLT with the fried egg on it. Close second is the biscuits and gravy. I'd like to note they have the creamy spicy jalapeno salsa for their breakfast tacos.
The main store by their driveway is called Safari Champs, so look for that and Greenhouse is in the middle of the back row of stores. The owner/chef is super nice and usually comes by to say hi and check in on the tables.
I haven't been there but a local food writer recommended El Monumento today during an NPR piece about outdoor dining. It's part of the Monument Café operation in Georgetown and there is a patio that overlooks the San Gabriel River.
