Everything is so expensive in Fredericksburg, but this place seemed reasonably priced and was located at the end of the Main Street strip, so it was easy to get to. The building is a little dumpy on the outside, but the inside is kept really clean. We both got a burger and we both thought it was good. The onion... More

I think when they first opened up years back they were better than they are now. Place is clean, decent people and such, but to me its just not anything special, apologies. Their patties seemed to be prefab and tasted ok, but not a home made prime grind or seasonings. The huge onions though they look impressive they typically are... More

Spent the morning touring the historic parts of Fredericksburg, worked up an appetite and had seen the glowing reviews of Porky's, so we stopped there for lunch. Everyone raved with reviews about the burgers, tater tots and onion rings, we we ordered one of each, plus a specialized burger with fried egg on top. Darn. Was a bit disappointed. I... More

I love burgers and onion rings! I loved my burger and rings! I don't think I have ever had rings that big before. The crunch was great and didn't fall apart as I was eating them. Best burger and rings ever? Close enough!

This was the first place we went to when we got to Fredericksburg. It's a little dumpy place with not much of a parking lot, but the food was amazing! Great burgers (you can add all sorts of goodies on top) and amazing onion rings- they were thick and crunchy! It was pretty cheap too, which was a main selling... More

Stopped here after reading others reviews of the burgers and rings. Had the Porkys burger and it was very good, not stingy with the bacon. Rings were great but got only three. Place is pretty plain but the food is good. Service was a little slow, but overall a good place to have a good burger.

The burgers are delicious. If you order the onion rings as a side you get 3 very large onion rings. Literally an inch wide with thick batter. I only ate one with my burger. The milk shakes are good. The Philly cheese steak sandwiches were ok. The meat was just a single strip of meat. Very small place but definitely... More

Porky's is off the Main St. strip and directly across from the Jeep dealership. It's looks like a "hole in the wall" establishment, and I've driven past it a few dozen times before discovering it on Trip Advisor a month ago. We stopped there on Saturday around lunch time and ordered the Jalapeno mushroom burger on a jalapeno bun, a... More

The burgers here are incredible! There is nothing bland about the meat, and the toppings are always fresh. They cook everything to order and we've never had any problems with our (sometimes) picky orders. Their onion rings are HUGE and perfectly battered & fried. 4 of us got burgers, one large order of rings and one large order of tater... More

Our lunch at Porky's was great! The burger was loaded with cheese, bacon and toppings. The seasoned fries and huge onion rings were delicious as well. The staff was friendly and attentive. Great value for the price. I would recommend this Fredericksburg casual dining restaurant to anyone who enjoys a good burger.
