BBQ Restaurant
$$
“Good food, great drinks and live music. What more could you want? Pet friendly? Yep! They even allow pets in the outside seating area. (and will bring them a fresh bowl of water) Our favorites are the nacho construction kit with beef fajita meat. (It comes with other options like chicken and ground beef but their beef fajita meat is the bomb!) Also, fried catfish, BBQ Pig ribs and smashed potatoes (Yumm!), chicken fried steak or chicken, homemade tamales, it's all great. They even have burgers and salads. Drinks you ask? Try their famous jalapeño margarita. But beware- its strong. They also have a full bar and a variety of beers and wines to choose from. Checkout their website to see the live music schedule.”

Burger Restaurant

“This is a no frills spot tucked back behind a Main St. business. It hands down is the best burger in town. It's the kinda good where you just stare at each other like a crazed person as you eat in silence both understanding that is too good to speak about!”

Beer Garden
$$
“If you still wanna party after dinner then I would suggest Silver Creek. I must say that they have a great bar with indoor and outdoor seating. If you head that way, make sure to ask for Gabe, he's makes the best drinks in town and is known for coming up with his own unique recipes! ”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“If you love Italian food, check out Pasta Bella. It's our favorite Italian restaurant in Fredericksburg. But be aware, if you go at peak times (especially on weekends) there will be a wait but it's totally worth it. (They are also closed on Sundays)”
