“GREAT burgers and onion rings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

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 tots and had leftovers. I thought all tater tots tasted the same, but even their tots taste better than the norm. They actually taste like taters instead of grease.

It looks like a small unassuming place, but there is more room inside than we would have thought. The decor is country and meat related, perfect for the best hamburger in town!

“Great burger, fries and onion rings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

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.

“You Have to Try This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Firstly, it may be the best cheeseburger that we've ever eaten. The onion rings are also terrific! One orders from a counter and the food is brought to plain tables situated around the place which is an old residence. Prices are reasonable. Staff are friendly and efficient. This place is "one-of-a-kind."

“Great fresh burger and onion rings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Don't let the outside scare you away. The hamburgers are excellent. Freshly ground beef and hand shaped patties. The regular size is near a half pound and the small burger is a 1/4 pounder. The lettuce and tomato toppings were fresh and crisp. The onion rings are huge. We ordered the medium size order and could not finish. The small is plenty if having a burger. The place was full of locals when we entered, a good sign. It is about a mile west of the main shopping area but well worth the trip. Prices were good and service fast and friendly.

“GREAT burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Get off the main drag and avoid the tourist restaurants and make your way here! Best meal you are likely to get in Fredericksburg. One of the best burgers I've had in a long time and the onion rings! Really hit the spot before we returned to the museum to finish our tour.
