Hi everyone! This is my first post on Chowhound! My hubby, toddler, and I are stopping into Fredericksburg for a morning/afternoon on our way back from San Antonio to Dallas. We plan on strolling around main street and looking at all the shops before grabbing lunch and heading on our way. Since Fredericksburg is a German town, we figured that we should eat German food for lunch while we were there. (We have a cheap yummy local German restaurant called Henks in Dallas that we love). However, from reading the boards, it appears that the German food restaurants are not necessarily very good - ie. most people recommend Hill Top Cafe or Cranky Franks BBQ as dining options.
So, should we eat German in Fredericksburg? If so, which restaurant is best?
If not German, are there any other places that we can walk to within the main shopping area of Frederickburg (casual/cheap/toddler friendly) that we should consider? I'm not sure if Hilltop is the best option because we would have to drive there and we will likely havea lot of BBQ in San Antonio b/c it is near our hotel.
