Waited over an hour to get food while watching them cater to their "to go" walk-ins. Then food was cold and no apologies for the ridiculous wait. Watched other dine in customers endure same lack of service. Don't know how they they were rated a top pick. They are last on or list and should be on yours, unless you want do take out. Then you might be pleased. Just don't dine in unless you have time to burn.

nice locations at corner of Washington and Main street. Most seating is outside but in Fredericksburg this is to be expected and welcomed. Went on a Sat. evening- pretty early- and tried ordering the chicken enchiladas but they were already sold out. Disappointed but they offered to make a different kind of chicken enchilada for us. We would go there again for sure.

We liked Mahaly's so much we went back twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Dogs are welcome on the patio and we had ours with us so it was nice to be able to bring her.
Looks like an old gas station that was remodeled, and even has the bathrooms outside.
Nice covered patio area and at the end of the main strip.
It was highly recommended on this site so we made our list ahead of time of places to go and things to do and Mahaly's made the final cut - we were not disappointed!

Wow! The staff was all over the place, except outside waiting on tables. And don't try to make eye contact with them! Finally went inside and complained, which seemed to get some attention as one of the adults finally came outside, asking guests for orders, etc. Went there for breakfast on a Sunday morning. 9ish. Healthy crowd. Everyone liked the food and the food came out quick once we got out order in.

We were in town for a long weekend and needed a quick, but filling breakfast. We opted for the barbacoa tacos. I'm from Corpus Christi, TX and generally presume no one north of San Antonio knows how to make barbacoa properly. I stand corrected. The tacos were excellent a bit on the large side, which is an advantage if you know you will be hitting the local wineries for tastings (empty stomachs can be a disadvantage.)

It was shortly after Labor Day, and while not really cool outside, the shaded patio was a nice place to enjoy our tacos and plan our itinerary for the rest of the day.
