Great Food

Four of us had lunch, and all were delighted with our food. The chicken salad was outstanding, and the shrimp and grits were excellent. We also had the Cajun Cake which was similar to a Hummingbird Cake. Wow! The restaurant is a little difficult to find. You have to search for their signage, but it... read more

The Chicken Salad on a Croissant is super. The chips are special too. Have recommended Cartwheels to several of my friends and acquaintances.

At its former location it was a hidden gem and a great place to get a top quality sandwich or salad quickly. Now its location in the renovated old Schreiner Store downtown means occasional waits for a table at the peak of lunch hour. The food is worth the wait! My favorite is the Pan-Asian Chop Salad. Lots of eye-appeal... More

My husband and I ate here after dropping our daughter off at camp. We spent a bit of time walking around the area, window shopping. We stumbled on Cartewheels and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is a sandwich/salad/soup kind of place. They had a special that day: Shrimp and grits. Of course, we had to try it.... More

My wife and I had lunch (chicken salad sandwich / soup & bbq chicken salad). Way more than two old folks could eat. Sandwiches are served with homemade potato chips and choice of bread.- soup was indescribable (potatoe with sausage). We had the raspberry ice tea (beers available). This place has an almost like cult following and is IMMACULATELY clean.... More

This is what Kerrville needed! There is nothing like this in Kerrville and we are so happy to have found this place. The meatloaf special is amazing as well as the ginger cookies. I have not had the pleasure of attending a catered event from Cartewheels, but have seen the photobooks and everything looks wonderful. Keep it up- what a... More

Cartewheels has relocated in the old Schreiner Building near the City Hall Clock Tower. The entrance is not on Water street as one might expect. It is on what appears to be the side of the building that faces the clock tower parking lot. Parking is available in that lot, on Water Street, and in the High Rise lot across... More

I have eaten here several times and the chicken salad is to die for!! I have also eaten the food from the catering side and Wow....top notch foods!! They also have "to go" casseroles dishes and pastries you can order for a big or small party available right there in the shop!! You won't regret trying this place!!

Love to go here. They make awesome food. My favorite is the chicken salad sandwich. The people are friendly and the food is always fresh, good & unpretentious. You can also pick up meals to heat up at home from their deli next door. I've gotten King Ranch Chicken casserole to take home for dinner several times:)

Service is very good and food is excellent. They only take cash, but doesn't seem to bother anyone. They have excellent frozen entrees to go for those who need a quick nutritious meal.
