We're Neil and Alex, operators of The Good Lot, our family-owned business.
We have lived in Cedar Park since 2011. As parents to two boys and a fur baby, we're always looking for an ideal spot where the whole family can get out of the house and have fun together — a place with great beer is a bonus! Well, we got tired of looking and driving a ways and decided to just build our dream spot close to home. We wanted to create a neighborhood hangout — a place to kick back, unwind, and enjoy tasty beer, local food, and good company. Neil being the owner of Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers on Whitestone and Alex as a former 1st grade teacher, we have loved being involved in the community. We can't wait to meet more of you.

You've got questions? We've got answers!
SO ... WHAT IS THE GOOD LOT?
So glad you asked! We are a family-friendly beer garden and food truck lot with a concession-style bar, pavilion, shaded yard, kid's play area, cornhole, misters and fans for when it's hot, fire pits and heaters for when it's cold, and just about anything else you need to sit and enjoy a few pints ... responsibly! 🙂
WHEN ARE FOOD TRUCKS OPEN?
Food trucks operate within the same hours as The Good Lot, so there's always something to eat. Each food truck is closed one day a week Monday through Thursday. This means no matter when you show up, we have at least three trucks open. Check our Food page for additional food truck information.
DO Y'ALL ALLOW DOGS?
YES! We have a water station with dog bowls and are within walking distance of Cedar Bark Park. Just remember to clean up after your pet(s). Also, the city requires dogs to be kept on a leash at all times and to not be allowed on top of same surfaces as food. So, no tabletop dancing, please! 😉
DO Y'ALL ALLOW OUTSIDE FOOD AND/OR DRINK?
Other than a personal water bottle that you can fill up at our free ice and water dispenser, we do not allow folks to show up with food or drink purchased outside The Good Lot or our delicious food trucks. We are Alamo Drafthouse-level strict about this policy and will kindly ask you to consume your outside food or drink in your vehicle or off the property while we hold your table.
DO Y'ALL DO PRIVATE EVENTS?
At this time, no, we do not rent out TGL for private events. For birthday parties and other celebrations, though, it's first come, first served. Feel free to snag and hold a table or two. We do allow folks to bring in their own cake or cupcakes for a celebration, the only exception to our "no outside food or drink policy". But please, y'all, no confetti ... unless you plan on cleanin' it up yourself! 😉
