Friday nights are busy with live music and various family activities, great for playdates with their options of yummy foods, playscape, and outdoor trail for your little explorers
Round Rock Donuts is home to the mother of all donuts. Literally. Round Rock Donuts makes the largest and heaviest donut around town. They call it the Texas Donut, because as you know, everything is bigger in Texas Y’all! You’ll have to see it to believe it. If you need enough regular-sized or Texas-sized donuts to feed a large crowd, it’s best to call ahead and place an order for pick up. There’s also a drive-thru. They also serve donuts holes, kolaches and cakes.
Head over to an Austin staple after a fun filled day at Barton Springs pool or Zilker part adventures. Shady grove has a great selection of foods, live entertainment, and a family friendly patio. Their spicy chicken wings are to.die.for.
Choose any Gordoughs location and you are bound to be pleasantly surprised at the unique (and sometimes odd) donut flavors available. Take the Mother Clucker for example: Fried Chicken Strip With Honey Butter. Sounds funky, yet tasty!
The menus vary slightly between each location so it’s good to take a look online before you go. While donuts are available at all three, the Public House creates the fabulous Donut Burgers and Donut dinner entrees. However, it is a bar, so not the best place for kids in the evenings.
Wanting Mexican food and a place the kids can enjoy? This place has it all, great Mexican food, a patio furnished with picnic tables, and a playscape area within arms reach.
Stop on by after a fun trip to the Triangle’s Wednesday farmers market to snack on an appetizer, try one of their jalapeno margaritas, or just take some time to enjoy some Tex-Mex food. The kids can also enjoy the friendly environment and head over to the playscape that’s right next to the restaurant.
Good Tex-Mex Food, including its famous Bob Armstrong dip. It’s an inviting environment for all families, including their quaint patio set with a pond with fishes. The staff is incredibly friendly, and really makes the dining experience enjoyable for the entire family.
An Austin favorite located steps away from Dell Diamond, so before you head to a game, sit outside in their patio area, grab a bite to eat, and let the kids release some energy at the playscape area
Lone Star Grille has an enormous play area with a playscape, stage for live music, and plenty of space for the kids to run wild. This is definitely a favorite of the kids and the parents!
Great local pizza (with gluten free options), and an open shaded area to sit and enjoy the nice Spring days. Not only is it a great space to enjoy a family night out, but would act as a perfect birthday party location. It’s gated and has a big lot that includes a playscape.
Husband and wife team Scott and Jenny Emley opened High 5 in 2016 as a place to spend time with their three children that guaranteed good food, good drinks and good times for everyone.

The Lakeway location offers 2-stories of bowling, laser tag, a video arcade, virtual reality, a game room, a chef-inspired full-service restaurant and bar, massive meeting spaces, and private rooms for birthday parties and special events.
