Local dining experiences

Heading to Texas and will be in Fredricksburg area as well as Gonzales. Looking for ideas of local favorites - no chains - for barbeque and mexican as well as german/bohemian. Patio would be nice to enjoy the outdoors - willing to travel off the beaten path. Any ideas? Thanks.

You must go to Alamo Springs out by the bat cave. I believe that the road you take is Old San Antonio Road and follow the signs to the bat cave. The resturant is right down the road on the right. The best hamburger I have ever put in my mouth. Everything there is good. Outside seating also. It is a nice drive through the country and it is off the beaten path.

Ditto---LOVE Alamo Springs, and when you sit outside, you are really in the country. The bats fly from March-Oct, and it's very cool. Der Lindenbaum seems to be the most popular for authentic German food, and I would recommend Bejas (on Main Street) for good mexican "cuisine" and a great patio.
