    I've seen that place, but now I guess I'll have to stop.

    Great place to eat near Fredburg is the Hilltop Cafe, eight miles up the road to Mason. Cajun/Greek/Texan. Outstanding seafood. I know, I know, but it comes in fresh every other day. How many places have great Greek-style stuffed herbed flounder, sublime gumbo, AND killer CFS.

    In Fredericksburg itself, Sozial Haus on South Llano Street has very good sandwiches and pizza.

    In Kerville Rita's Famous Tacos is right in the center of town and across the street from a nice pavilion that overlooks the river; get yours to go and walk over there. Pax coffee shop is also right there, the guy running it is a rider.

    Tons of awesome food places in the Kerrville-Fredburg area. A lifetime of places to discover sometimes in the most unlikely looking spots.

    Salt Lick BBQ outside Driftwood is a classic and great Texas BBQ joint. This Texans favorite BBQ place. Also check out Luckenbach outside Frederiksburg. Another Texas classic beer joint/dance hall/motorcycle hangout. MUST DO...

    Anytime you stop for gas, etc, ask about local bbq places, great stuff is everywhere.

    Dave I ate at Two Fat guys a few weeks ago . They must of had an off day the brisket was underwhelming, not as good as it had been in the past .

    I have had excellent brisket in the store but I bought 10 lbs for a catering gig and it had mostly the fat ends but it made outstanding chop beef for later on . The ribs and smoked turkey were as good as I've ever had fresh off the smoker . I did ask for the lean end when I ordered , that's just the way I order .

    I think the only way to get "bad" barbecue in the area is if you happen to find the barbecue brisket MRE at a surplus store or if you go to a Bill Miller's. But even then, Bill Miller's has great sides and is okay for what it is, the McDonald's of barbecue. I would suggest never trying the barbecue brisket MRE if given the chance. It's an abomination. Starvation is a less cruel fate.
