Have been "dining" at Alamo Springs for years. Not your run of the mill place.....a honky tonk .....and hey, they serve fried food so it smells that way. Never had a meal that wasn't delicious. Yes, it's crowded and for a reason: The food is great and the atmosphere, funky!

Way out in the hills, off on a side road to a dead end, is a great roadhouse. Really good food, from burgers to pasta. Inside, it's a diner. Outside, it's a honkeytonk or hill forest patio. Try the onion rings. Feed the cats. Enjoy the unique atmosphere. It's out of the way, but it's a real nice road trip!

I prefer thin patties, so I was cautiously optimistic that I would be able to deal with a fat one. Fried green bean app was off-the-charts good, but a skimpy portion. The meat patty was cooked perfectly, just beyond medium. The wheat bun looked and tasted as if my grandmother had just baked it (sorry, too much of a purist... More

We arrived to find the place packed, but grabbed a table for lunch! We placed our order and watched in amazement how this operation works! In what seems like organized chaos...delicious food is promptly served and the staff is friendly and helpful! Our burgers were cooked perfectly and the onion rings and fries were to die for! The food is... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere (near Luckenbach. TX. It is a ratty looking place but we decided to give it a go because it had good reviews. Sure enough, we were delighted with our burgers. They were some of the best we have ever had. The meat is cooked on a cast iron grill and it was... More

We searched this place out after reading so much about the cheeseburgers. It was busy on a Sunday afternoon when we arrived but easily found a table. We ordered and 50 minutes later our food arrived. My veggie sandwich was yummy and my husband said his cheeseburger was very good. If you don't mind the very l-o-n-g wait for food,... More

My favorite place near Fredericksburg or Kerrville, we had a sibling weekend in Fredericksburg with my wife's siblings and their spouses. We warned them about the size of the Burgers to no avail, my wife and I split a regular along with fries or onion rings. There is a large selection of beers along with other drinks. This visit we...

Finally got to Alamo Springs on our last trip to Fredericksburg. It was a rainy night in the middle of the week and we were one of two tables. This is not fast food, so be prepared to wait for your food to be prepared. We both had hamburgers and shared a half & half order of onion rings and... More
