The Good Lot: Cedar Park’s Newest Hangout

Guys! Cedar Park is cool! I’ve never had a problem driving from up north into Austin when I felt like going out, but more and more places are popping up that make it super easy and convenient to have fun in Leander and Cedar Park!

The Good Lot is one example. It’s a family-friendly beer garden with a variety of craft beer and ciders, as well as wine, seltzers and domestics – 24 taps in total. They have a large open-air covered space, big screen TV (we went during a UT game – it was packed!), and a large yard space with tables, trees for shade, yard games, and a play area for kids.

Of course, the more dogs the merrier. We brought Winnie both times and she did great! Kids absolutely love her and she’s so good with them.

The events calendar at The Good Lot is packed! They do live music on Fridays and Saturdays, open mic on Wednesdays, all day happy hour on Mondays, trivia on Tuesdays, and food trucks every day of the week!

We ate at Yaad Bird, The Oink Mobile, The Rice is Right, and Lulu’s Pie Shoppe. It was all super tasty, but I’ll be honest – after eating The Rice is Right’s Korean Fried Cauliflower Box (white rice, crispy cauliflower with sweet tangy spicy sauce, ginger slaw, add a marinated ramen egg), I don’t think I’ll be able to order anything else! It was SO freaking good. My Good Lot go-to order. To be fair, I still need to try Four Brothers. They just moved in at The Good Lot and I haven’t had a chance to eat there yet!

The Good Lot also has good parking, nice bathrooms, kind bartenders… it’s one of my favorite spots to chill in Cedar Park! If you’re visiting on the weekend, maybe bring a picnic blanket just in case. It was pretty packed last Saturday during the UT game and nearly every table was taken. There’s plenty of lawn space, though.

Attention businesses who want to come to expand to Cedar Park/Leander – if you build it they will come!
