After driving from Amarillo on a sweltering July day, we wanted to stretch our legs and eat a good dinner. We settled on fish tacos and nachos st Tubby’s, along with draft beers. Great food, good service at the counter. And the dog could join...More

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 had a few options in town, but this one seemed the most interesting and we were really pleased with our choice. It's off the main street so you have to put it in the GPS, but it's worth the effort. Interesting tacos, good quality...More
