Where to eat and drink in Georgetown, TX

Casual Food:

600 Degrees Pizzeria (124 East 8th Streat Georgetown, TX 78626)- my favorite pizza in town! You can order a full specialty or create your own pie, grab by the slice as big as your head or chow down on the best wings. The beer and wine list is always changing and is sure to please conoseuirs. Seating is first come, first serve and on weekends the restaurant gets pretty busy.

600 Market Place (114 E 7th Ave. Georgetown, TX 78626) - the perfect place for grab and go before heading to the square to enjoy the sights. Sub, salads, wings and pasta are on the menu in additional to grab and go drinks.

Barrel and Amps (718 S Austin Ave. Georgetown, TX 78626)- this spot could easily also fall in the evening out category as its the perfect place to end an evening and enjoy live music, but the food is not to be overlooked. The fish and chips, burger and desserts are by far my favorite items on the menu.

Mikey V’s Hot Sauce Shop (112 W 8th St. Georgetown, TX 78626)- hot sauce shop in the front and party in the back, this is a must visit! Mikey V’s opened his hot sauce shop years ago and prides himself in offering a curated selection of sauce. Mikey recently expanded his shop and is bringing the authentic vibe of a Mexican street taco to the square. Inside tables are all stand up casual, but there are also tables on the back patio. Have you ever had a Burris taco? It’s a must here and don’t skip the consume.

Fuego Latino Gastropub (708 S Austin Ave. Georgetown, TX 78626)- the husband and wife team behind this restaurant are impressing patrons left and right with authentic Latin flavors. I have sampled Cuban sandwiches all over and have never had one as delightful as Chef Jorge Alcocer’s.

Sweet Lemon Kitchen (812 S. Church Street Georgetown, TX 78626)- this is the place to go if you’re meeting a friend for breakfast/lunch and casual conversation. Something about Sweet Lemon that makes you feel at home. Everything in this kitchen is made from scratch and even those who aren’t as salad obsessed as me will go crazy over their house lemon salad dressing.

El Monumento (205 W 2nd St Georgetown, TX 78626)- this restaurant is gorgeous and perfect for bringing out of town visitors. The margarita, chips and guacamole are freakishly addicting. We consider El Monumento to be a higher end Mexican restaurant but also a great happy hour spot and family friendly.

District Six (105 W 9th St. Georgetown, TX 78626)- another newbie to the square is this family friendly arcade and sports bar.The menu is casual and playful and it's truly a great spot to watch a game.

Tejas Meat Supply (101 E 7th St. Georgetown, TX 78626)- think tailgate party inside of a butcher shop and that pretty much summarizes Tejas. The menu is all casual sandwiches, the bar is full service and the butcher shop features fresh cuts from sustainable Texas ranches.

2020 Scratch Kitchen & Bar (1500 Rivery Blvd. #1100)- I always have a latest salad obsession and lately it's been from 2020 Scratch Kitchen. I like the casual atmosphere and large menu and honestly have loved every bite I've tasted.

Nancy's Sky Garden (103 N Austin Ave. Georgetown, TX 78626)- this is always a go to craving of mine when my body is craving wholesome, fresh food. There are tons of vegan and gluten free options on the menu and the sweet potato noodles are a must try item.

BiG Cafe- Brookwood (905 N Church St. Georgetown, TX 78626)- BiG is a vocational community that provides meaningful work for adults with special needs. The cafe is a small part of a work they do, but I highly recommended making a visit. The food is all very fresh, incredibly tasty and the service is simply awesome.

Grab a drink:

Black Sugar Coffee (109 W 7th St #105 Georgetown, TX 78626)- I often bring my laptop and settle into this place. The seating is cozy, the Americanos are delightful and the staff is super friendly. In the evenings, tapas, wine and beer are also available.

Mesquite Creek Outfitters (704 South Austin Ave. Georgetown, TX 78626)- half apparel and half bar... yes, it works! If you’re looking to be a true part of Georgetown life, Mesquite is the place.

Barking Armadillo (507 River Bend Drive Georgetown, TX 78628)- this brewery opened a little over a year ago and has quite a following. The team brews a wide array of styles, is constantly enhancing the patio space, hosting unique events and most days you’ll find a rotating food truck on site. I highly recommend following this place on Instagram as the team is excellent at keeping its audience informed on all the brewery happenings.

Rentsch Brewery ( 2500 NE Inner Loop Ste 3105 Georgetown TX 78626)- this is the brewery we go to on weather perfect days because the fenced in outdoor space is great. The brewery often has rotating food trucks and live music.

Night out:

Golden Rule (606 S Church St. Georgetown, TX 78626)- the square never had a true cocktail spot until Golden Rule opened. The patio is a great spot to catch up with friends while sipping on expertly made cocktails and the inside is a cozy vibe perfect for a date night. I highly recommend trying the Brussel sprouts and steak frites (always always ask for truffle sauce).

Kork Wine Bar (815 S. Main Street Suite 101 Georgetown, TX 78626)- not only does this spot have an ever changing wine selection, unique craft beers on tap and delish food, but the space is massive. There is a smaller front patio, tons of indoor seating and a whole other patio on the other side of the main entrance.

Nightingale Bistro (205 W 6th Street #101A Georgetown, TX 78626)- a relatively recent addition to Lark & Owl bookstore is this rustic French inspired restaurant. Dining space is completely outdoors and an evening under the strand lights is totally romantic.

Sweet tooth:

18 Carrot Bakery (710 S Austin Ave. Georgetown, TX 78626) - this bakery is out of this world amazing! Everything is made from scratch using organic ingredients. 18 Carrot sells cakes, pies, cheesecakes, cookies, muffins, scones and best of all their cinnamon rolls. The cinnamon rolls are quite the experience, but only sold on Sundays and sell out fast, so don't mess around. The bakery recently expanded to house classes, tea parties and kids cooking camps.

Galaxy Bakery (107 E 7th Street Georgetown, TX 78626)- my husband cannot leave this bakery without spending at least $30 because he gets so excited every time. The bakery keeps an assortment of goodies out to sell and will also take cake requests for special events.

Shake's Frozen Custard (1208 Williams Drive Georgetown, TX 78628)- this is a classic custard spot that I pray never changes. The custard is outstanding and the flavor combinations and truly unlimited.

Hula Cowgirl Shaved Ice (103 N Austin Ave. #305 Georgetown, TX 78626)- whenever grandparents come to town, the first thing our daughter requests is a visit to Hula Cowgirl. This shaved ice spot carries more flavors than I ever knew existed and also serves ice cream.

All Things Kids /Scoops (703 S. Main Street Georgetown, TX 78626)- it's a shame to visit the square without a visit to this shop. Scoops provides an old school ice cream parlor experience and the sweet smell is intoxicating.

Our family spends A LOT of time in Georgetown, so if you happen to run into us, please come say hello. Would love to meet you!
