Good Burger

Good old fashioned burger. Us girls opted for a small burger and I would probably go for the larger one next time if we are ever there again. Fries and onion rings are top notch! From the decorations and name I expected a BBQ joint, but was all burgers just a lot of pigs.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed great hamburgers, french fries, and onion rings. The onion rings are huge so there are a few huge ones in a service. It's definitely worth a stop here!

I had a great time at Porky's! I love the old school style feel of it. You walk in and order at the counter and then they serve the food to you when it is finished. The service was good, the burgers were great, and the experience was fantastic! Check it out next time you are in Fredericksburg!

This is a small old school place. Order at the counter and they bring you your order when ready. Staff is super friendly, the menu is large, the food is fresh and great tasting. Already looking forward to my next visit.

The first thing I ordered at Porkys in Fredericksburg , TX, was a pulled pork sandwich. Wrong! No pork at Porkys, just amazing hamburgers. The beef is fresh daily from another Fredericksburg establishment, the Dutchmans meat market. You have a choice of breads, but I recommend the jalapeño cheese bun. And be sure to get their onion rings. Porkys is... More

This is a typical old fashioned mom and pop "greasy spoon" burger joint. Although there aren't many of those left. So if for no other reason that's why you should try Porky's if you are hungry for a burger. Sure there's a Whataburger on the other end of town but they don't have things like the "Frito Pie burger".

Had lunch at Porky's last week. Family from Sweden accompanied us and requested we return there for lunch. They had not visited in 3 years and this is where they wanted to eat (again). The hamburgers were great (highly recommend paying extra for the jalapeno/cheese bun....I think it was homemade!), as were the onion rings. Everyone cleaned their plate. Yummy!... More

By far the best Chicken Fried Steak Strips I've ever had. Love the Mushroom Swiss burger also. Go hungry because the portions are big.

Real malts--not milk shakes. Great burgers and onion rings. Hamburgers fresh from local meat market every day.
