“Great Chicken Salad But Uppity Attitude”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We live in Kerrville and have had lunch numerous times at Cartewheels. I love their chicken salad, but honestly their atmosphere and service needs improvement. If you're not a part of their "in" crowd, you don't feel welcome there, especially if you're under the age of 65.

I think they could really cater much better to younger folk and not be so uppity...but the food has always been good.

“Best Chicken Salad or Chicken Salad Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I have been here many times, solo and with a friend. or my husband. They don't offer a huge menu, but that keeps the quality up. Their chicken salad, whether as a salad or sandwich (especially on a croissant) is excellent. Then there is the cookie jar -- bad, bad influence; they are a little pricey but every crumb is worth it. I wish their hours were longer or open one or two evenings during the weekend (week-end lunch would be great too). They usually have a daily special, but I can't get past their chicken salad sandwich.

“Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I have to rave about CartWheels after attending a Fredericksburg wedding this weekend. Being an out-of-towner, I had no idea that Kerrville had such great talent! The food was magnificent, as were the presentations. I noticed the expertly dressed staff buzzing around, refilling dishes, picking up empty plates. I especially liked how they create an eye-appealing buffet, using multi-levels and unique serving pieces; you can tell much thought goes into the events. When I asked the bartender who the caterer was, I was so surprised to find out that this was a small toen caterer... creating a big impression. Kudos to your staff on a job well done!

“Best Greek Salad In Town!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is my favorite place to lunch. The people are friendly and the menu is unbelievable! They have a wide array of salad selections as well as sandwiches, soup and full meals with daily specials. I have lunched here with one friend and as many as 12 friends. I particularly enjoy the Raspberry Iced Tea with the Greek Salad. All of the ingredients are fresh and tasty!

Went with two friends and had a great chicken salad sandwich and tea. Nice, clean atmosphere and good menu choices. Very casual.
