Royal Blue Grocerys are popping up all over town these days, and we can pretend to be upset about how much Austin is changing or we can just agree to order a slice of pizza or the Reuben and be very satisfied. Speaking of the Reuben, get yours with extra dipping sauce. Most locations offer a range of other grab-and-go food options, plus outdoor seating for when it’s not 100 degrees out. There’s a solid selection of bubbly waters, kombuchas, and beers if it’s that kind of day.
