Favorite Restaurants Around Bandera

Texas Hill Country has so much to offer visitors, and so much great food for hungry travelers! Looking for a great burger? Try the Alamo Springs General Store and Cafe, located in Fredericksburg (the onion rings are also a hit).

For something a bit different, try the Friedhelms Bavarian Inn Restaurant and Bar (also located in Fredericksburg). Specializing in authentic German and Bavarian cuisine, this unique location is well-known for its steaks.

Or, if traditional bar-b-que is more to your liking, head to Bill’s Bar-B-Que, the oldest bar-b-que joint in Kerrville. They use Texas-sourced meats and grills that have been seasoned for 40 years.

Hill Country State Parks

It’s easy to find beautiful places to explore in the Texas Hill Country. Here are a few of our favorite parks:

  • Lost Maples State Natural Area: It’s known for its fall color, but Lost Maples is spectacular year-round. With abundant wildflowers, the scenic Sabinal River and dramatic canyons, there’s lots to do for the entire family.
  • Garner State Park: Another beautiful area offering hiking, boating, fishing and much more! The park has also hosted summer dancing since the 1940s.
  • Guadalupe River State Park: Featuring the dramatic Guadalupe River, this park offers a beautiful place to swim, fish and canoe, as well as activities further from the river.
  • Enchanted Rock State Natural Area: The massive pink granite dome rising above central Texas gives this park its magical mystique. This is a wonderful area to hike and rock climb.
