American?
I had the same feeling.

Love this place. As someone who has a boatload of dietary restrictions, this place is a Godsend.

One of my sons and his two boys are vegans, so I’ll have him check it out.

I like Tumble22 as well. (That name sounds like a Twitter handle or something )

I can’t eat their Mac&Cheese though. For some reason it triggers an allergic reaction.

Too bad because the mac and cheese is heavenly, lol.

They opened a restaurant in Round Rock and we tried that one.

I also want to try as many local (Round Rock) restaurants as possible. People have this misguided notion that its food landscape is consisted mostly of (national) chains when us locals know the real deal. There's lots of local restaurants plus many Austin restaurants are opening outposts in our city (i.e. Hopdoddy, Tumble22, Tony Cs). There's this awesome beer garden near where I live too.

I tried Tumble 22 recently and it was really good. I also tried a place called the Brewtorium?

Yeah. I have a HopDoddy not far from me. Also have Stiles BBQ, Tumble 22, Red Robin, BJ’s, and my favorites: Moutons Louisiana Kitchen and also Blue Corn . More probably coming with that mixed use development going up in Leander.

In Round Rock I also like Louisiana Longhorn Cafe in downtown RR. There is also a nice coffee shop across the street from it.

Are Hop Doddy Burgers worth the trip? Moutons is a great place, both locations. I prefer the Cedar Park one better, it's a little bigger and has more bar room.

HopDoddy is not bad, but not worthy of the hype or the price, imho. It is more about the ambiance/style than the food, it seems.
