Celebrated 60th wedding anniversary for family this weekend and went to Alamo Springs after formal celebration. Table for 12 was not a problem with a reservation. As always, excellent burgers and accompaniments. Fried avocado was great as were onion rings.
One of the few aces that has honor system for wine and beer. Nice trusting touch. Hope people do not take advantage of it and spoil it for the rest of us.

Made the 20 min drive out to Alamo Springs and was pleasantly surprised. Staff was super friendly. Burgers were fantastic. The spicy fries and onion rings were out of this world. Make the drive and check this place out!

Cheeseburger with blue cheese crumbles and jalapeño cheddar bun was absolutely the finest burger we've ever had!! Even the French fries were incredible! Vanilla shake was disappinting. Loved the funky worn country feel of the place. Great waitress and very good prices! 12 beautiful miles from Fredricksburg, on a scenic country road! We'll be back!!!

Awesome burgers. We went here after having it highly recommended by everyone we talked to. We ate here and then watched the bats right up the road but would go here anytime. It's a seat yourself so find you a good spot and settle in for the best burger. The fries and rings are also good. I wish I had had room for dessert but there was no way after the size of the burger. Already looking forward to visiting again.

We were passing through on our way home from Padre and saw this on TA. Glad to say we stopped... the burger had the perfect char, was a half pound of perfectly seasoned meaty goodness, and was enough to be two meals (why would you want to?!?). We tried the onion rings with a perfect peppery batter, and the hand cut fries. Some were crispy, others had that amazing sog you can only have in a true hand cut fry. We were fighting for them!
Service was great and quick, there was a great assortment of bottled beer to pick from. Next time we're in Fredericksburg, we're popping in again!
Worth the trip if you are heading anywhere in the area!

PS- There was a cool outdoor stage and a schedule for performances. I bet it is a cool place to hang out, eat meat and sip a cold brew Texas style!
