The burgers are delicious. If you order the onion rings as a side you get 3 very large onion rings. Literally an inch wide with thick batter. I only ate one with my burger. The milk shakes are good. The Philly cheese steak sandwiches were ok. The meat was just a single strip of meat. Very small place but definitely worth a try.

Porky's is off the Main St. strip and directly across from the Jeep dealership. It's looks like a "hole in the wall" establishment, and I've driven past it a few dozen times before discovering it on Trip Advisor a month ago. We stopped there on Saturday around lunch time and ordered the Jalapeno mushroom burger on a jalapeno bun, a medium order of onion rings, and a soft drink. The total came out to around $13.

A friendly waitress brought the order out after 10 minutes and even went back to fetch us a cup of ranch. At first glance we noticed the onion rings were massive. We were salivating and overjoyed, but after taking the first bite the excitement diminished. They are extremely thick onions and the batter is dense. Even with ranch and ketchup we only ate 3 rings. I think next time we will go for the tater tots or just plain fries.

The burger on the other hand was definitely one of the better burgers that we've had the pleasure of devouring. The topping were fresh, and even though I'm not a fan of mustard I really enjoyed the brand they use and the symmetry that it had with everything else.

We look forward to a return visit.

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!

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.

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."
