The food was okay, and over priced. I ordered a simple burger and a simple taco, pulled my own beer out of the cooler, it was not busy, but still took a while to get the food. I won’t go back. It reminds me of...More

My wife and I went to Tubby's recently for lunch while on vacation in area. Restaurant has only outdoor seating both covered and uncovered. You order food at front counter and it is delivered to your table. Menu selections include tacos, burgers and salads. Not...More

Tubby’s Ice House was a nice stop after some shopping on Main Street. We had good food and the weather was perfect to sit outside. Fish tacos, loaded pulled pork french fries, and guacamole with chips were all tasty. It was a nice place to...More

Had a couple of good burgers there and had our dogs with us (outside patio with dogs on leashes). Food was good and service was friendly.

We’re newbies to Fredericksburg and this place is right down the way from the visitors center. They gave us the thumbs up on Tubby’s so we decided to try it out. You order at the shack and they will bring your food out to you....More

We came over for a drink— they were out of proseco, out of sauvignon Blanc. It’s the middle of winter and 40 degrees and all of their heaters are out of propane!! I didn’t get to try the food. Cute concept but not maintained well.

Tubby's has a good selection of meal offerings and is very kid friendly. Their burgers are very good. The enclosed patio can be a bit chilly in winter but very pleasant the rest of the year.

We ordered shrimp curry tacos & burger & fries, all good except I thought the taco was skimpy for $4.50 each. Went on a Wed night and both beers we wanted were out, we ended with Maine root beer which was delicious

We ordered cheeseburger and shrimp street tacos. Shrimp tacos were skimpy, yet loaded with taste. The sauce and cashews toss you a nice surprise and blends surprisingly well with the two shrimp per taco. The burger seemed to be made from very fresh beef and...More
