The booming Central Texas economy has earned the attention of NerdWallet.com. The website released a list of the 10 best large cities (50,000+) in which to open a restaurant. NerdWallet crunched data on population growth, density, restaurant sales, and personal income to determine the city’s with greatest demand.

Cedar Park, which has seen its number of restaurants double in the past five years, took the top spot on the list. Round Rock, which is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., came in at number five on the strength of its population growth and its “strong culinary scene that rakes in over $105 million in sales annually,” according to NerdWallet.com.

South Texas and North Texas also landed on the list, with Mission picking up the number two stop and Frisco coming in at number six.
