“Best hamburger in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This little out of the way restaurant is almost exclusively known to locals. They are keeping it a secret. The food is made to order and delicious. Their hamburger is quality beef, huge, and delicious. The hamburger bun is the best bread I have ever eaten. This is not a fancy place, just a great place for good food. Prices are reasonable and that chief sure knows how to cook. They also have sandwiches, Mexican food, dinner specials (great beef dishes). If you are on the run, run into the 290 Grill and order for take out. I notice lots of working people do just that.

Outstanding flavor, laid back atmosphere,
Super prices for fresh made delicious meals. Quirky atmosphere adds to the charm.

“If I could eat at only one restaurant in Fredericksburg, it would be here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Whether it's migas served with a big bowl of fresh fruit to accompany it . . . . a thick, double loin pork chop paired with a jalapeno-cherry glaze and homemade "smashed" potatoes . . . ,chicken enchiladas better than any I have EVER eaten and served with a chef's bonus of a bowl of homemade soup (no charge) . . . .290 Tacos & Grill hits it out of the ballpark.

The owner-chef is gifted with a superb palate. He knows how food should taste and he makes EVERYTHING from scratch. No mixes. No shortcuts. No junk food.

His kitchen is tiny and bare-bones. It also is immaculately clean. I walk by it and wish I could win the lottery and give 290 Tacos & Grill a BIG check so the chef could outfit his kitchen with everything in his dreams. Would that make the food better? No, but it would make the cook's job easier and let him serve more people!

If you live in Fredericksburg, make 290 Tacos & Grill a regular stop. Breakfast, lunch and dinner six days a week. To go (a lot of people stop to get breakfast tacos to go . . . they put everybody else's tacos to shame; they are really, really GOOD) cheerfully filled. But also take the time to sit down and enjoy watching people doing what they love to do (cook and take good care of customers). I go there solo or with friends at least twice a week, and have never eaten anything that wasn't outstandingly good.

And the prices? It's like walking into a 1960s time warp: 14 ounce prime rib dinner for $14.99!!! Migas (the best I've eaten) with fresh fruit and etc., etc. for $5.00? Yes!

Quit reading online reviews and get in your car and go to this restaurant. Family-friendly, people friendly, you will enjoy your food and watching these people work hard and build a business one customer at a time will make your heart happy.
