Nice lunch spot!

While passing through Kerrville we decided to try some local cooking and chose Hill Country Café. We were glad we did! We visited it about 1:30 after the lunch crowd, but a few diners were still present visiting. We ate BLT sandwiches and fired okra. The fried okra tasted like it was fresh cut from... read more

Although this restaurant has a great reputation in the area, don't go unless you want to order breakfast, which is their specialty. I had the tuna salad plate and it had a very small amount of food on it, a very small scoop of tuna salad, cottage cheese and crackers. Not a good value for right at $10.

Always a good meal at this Kerrville gem. They have a good breakfast as well. My favorite for lunch is their King Ranch Chicken. It is not always the special, but whatever is will be good. Don' is eating here. The waitresses are also friendly and efficient. Bring cash, they don't do credit cards.

I wish I could rate this place higher. The exterior looks great! The waitstaff is well trained and does a great job. The Hill Country Cafe is also a landmark, but past that it is nothing special. Bring cash, they don't take checks or credit cards. The food is good but not the best in town nor the cheapest. I... More

Been wanting to try this place for awhile as it's been around for years and was good from what I've heard. I ordered hamburger & fries. The burger had zero flavor. Fries were good. I can't remember what my husband ordered as his was just average too, nothing to write home about. The waitstaff were friendly and it's a nice... More

This is generally in response to Rhonda who posted on Jan 6th of this year. I've been coming to the HCC for almost 5 years. In that time I've never seen a dead animal or a booth so your review is either out of date or youre completely delusional. I love this restaurant. The service is great, breakfast is great... More

Never a let down, food is always very good & the service is also. Great people & food, what more could you ask for? Low prices? They're here also. A regular lunch stop for my wife & me! PS, the fried okra is beyond excellent!

I ordered scrambled eggs, ham, grits, and whole wheat toast, of courses coffee and cream. I was served non-dairy creamer, so I asked for milk. That request was met with a huff from the waitress and later brought me milk in a small glass without a word. She never bothered to tell me they didn't serve whole wheat toast, I... More
