Austin Neighborhoods: Anderson Mill



It’s been over three years since we took a look at the Anderson Mill neighborhood of Austin, located in North Austin at 183 and Anderson Mill.  As with much of Austin, this area has evolved and changed in that time.  Let's take a look at what's new in this popular Austin suburb.

Anderson Mill was established in the late 1970’s as a master-planned community and was incorporated into Austin in 2008.  It is popular with residents looking for affordable rent, lots of local amenities like green space, parks, and hike and bike trails, and Round Rock ISD Schools.  It is also close to lots of major freeways including Highway 183, State Highway 45, and Mopac and is less than thirty minutes from downtown Austin.

Children in Anderson Mill attend highly rated Round Rock ISD Schools.  For elementary, students go to Anderson Mill Elementary or Purple Sage Elementary, for middle school they attend Noel Grisham Middle School and for grades nine through twelve, they go to Westwood High School.   

One of the employers located near Anderson Mill is Paypal.  Just five miles from Anderson Mill, Paypal operates one of the world’s largest online payment systems.

Another large source of employment near Anderson Mill is Lakeline Mall, which is less than two miles away.  Lakeline Mall has a variety of job opportunities in stores and restaurants both in the mall and in the shopping centers that surround it.

As far as dining options in the Anderson Mill area, there are a ton of both locally owned and familiar chains to choose from.  Papalote Taco House is on 183 just south of Anderson Mill and serves authentic Mexican street food.  They have tacos, of course, but also serve up unique specialities like lengua and Hongos y Epazote.  

Seoulfood opened just a couple of months ago and is already impressing locals.  Serving up Korean fusion three miles from Anderson Mill, Seoulfood gets high marks for their Bento Boxes and bibimbop bowls.  


For entertainment, Pinot’s Palette is a unique date night or evening out with friends.  You bring your favorite beverage and you’ll be led in painting a masterpiece by an experienced artist.  Don’t worry, no artistic talent or experience is necessary!

Pinballz Arcade has a brand new location at Lakecreek!  Filled with pinball machines, arcade games, plus old favorites like skee-ball, you’ll love reliving your youth spent feeding quarters into video games!
