Georgetown restaurant The Golden Rule won both the President’s Award and People’s Choice Award on Nov. 4 for best downtown business as presented by the Texas Downtown Association, according to a press release.

The Golden Rule was presented with the awards at the Texas Downtown Conference in Denton, an award program that has been recognizing outstanding projects, places and people for over 35 years, according to the press release.

“We won this same award back in 2017 for Mesquite Creek Outfitters, but at that time we had no idea how big and important this really is, not only for us, but also for the entire community!” said Cody Hirt, the co-owner of The Golden Rule restaurant, in the press release about winning the prestigious award.

The restaurant opened in July of 2020, and serves a variety of food, including Candied Pecan Fried Chicken, Cantonese Riblets and Ranchero Sea Bass. According to the press release, The Golden Rule is focused on redefining the restaurant experience by creating and enhancing the guest experience.

“It’s so much fun to work in a community that truly supports each other, we’re so blessed to be surrounded by other businesses that all see each other as complimentary instead of competition,” Hirt said in the press release about being part of the Georgetown community.


The Texas Downtown Association is a statewide nonprofit organization established in 1985 and serves communities that are committed to strengthening downtown vitality, according to the press release.

The Golden Rule also made the Bourbon Review and Buffalo Trace list of Best Bourbon Bars in America just months after opening and is making the lists again in October, according to the press release.

“Between [the awards] and the amazing group of co-workers we’ve had from the start of the project to today, each had influence on what The Golden Rule has become,” Hirt said. “It’s so important to us to make sure each member of our team knows their true value and to know that their voices are heard!”

The Golden Rule is located at 606 S. Church St., Georgetown. 512-843-5900.
